A covert unit of Security Specialists tasked with bringing down GRID, an international organization of black-market brokers of intelligence, weaponry systems, and technology run by the formidable Thomas Kunz, who will do anything to anyone anywhere to destroy America.



Captain Amanda West is assigned to the elite S.A.S.S. Unit. All its Secret Assignment Security Specialists are highly trained and well experienced covert operatives. While on a mission, Amanda is buried alive in a tomb by S.A.S.S. nemesis and black-market broker Thomas Kunz who elevates ruthless to new heights. Amanda escapes and is astonished to learn she has been missing not for three days but for three months!

And soon she discovers another who has an unexplained three-month absence. An operative in a highly classified and sensitive position, Captain Mark Cross. Working together, Amanda and Mark must discover what happened to them and why. And they must determine if there are others like them. In their line of work, finding the truth is essential not only for their careers but for the lives of those in the nation they have taken oaths to defend and protect. What Kunz could be up to chills them both. But as bad as that is, it pales to what he is actually doing. Can Amanda and Mark stop Kunz before he attains his goal? Kunz wants nothing more than to destroy the entire nation!

“Suspense to the max!  I can’t wait to read the next Vicki Hinze book.  I’ve got a whole new genre to enjoy now.  www.ArmchairInterviews has an enormous amount of respect for Hinze’s ability to conjure up a scintillating read.”  – Armchair Interviews

“An edgy romantic thriller [by] a very creative author.  It’s hard to tell the good guys from the bad and it appears no one can be trusted; this alone makes for an excellent tale.  Add in a kick butt heroine that shows no fear and [this] becomes a book that must be read.”  

– The Romance Readers Connection

“The heroines in a new genre of romance novels are smart and tough enough to take down anyone who gets in their way.”  –USA TODAY

“An economical read that moves forward like a European bullet train.  Not underwritten or overwritten — just the right words are there at the right time for the right response. The timing on when to stop the train for intimacy feels perfect. It’s like a piece of music; visceral, yet intimate experience that is loads of fun.

–William Olsen, Film Producer, Getting it On

“Wow! I couldn’t put it down.  Hinze has outdone herself–again!”  –Nina Coombs Pykarre

“Vicki Hinze has a brisk, engaging writing style, and her heroine is a powerhouse.”  –Romantic Times
