“Hinze pens a gripping tale with a chilling scenario.”           

Romantic Times


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.


To achieve his Number One objective—the destruction of the United States—Thomas Kunz, the brilliant and diabolical nemesis of the S.A.S.S. Unit security specialists, plans an Independence Day massacre.

This time, an unusual skill is required to stop Kunz: Total recall. Only one Security Specialist operative has that skill: Captain Darcy Clark.

But Darcy’s special skill comes with special challenges. Five years ago, she nearly died on a mission that changed her entire life. She gained total recall but also hyper-stimulation attacks that require her to live in isolation. Her ability to perform field operations halted.

Now Customs Agent Ben Kelly reports a smuggling operation that signals an impending attack. Perhaps multiple attacks. Everyone doubts Darcy can handle the field assignment, but Darcy has no choice. She must face her deepest fears and limitations and work with Ben to save American lives. And she must stop Kunz from luring her into a trap to identify her and replicate her mind, as he has replicated other body doubles. His program has proven to be wickedly successful. Can Darcy accomplish the mission and not become a victim of the Mind Thief?

He turns to incredible photographic memory Special Agent Darcy as his only hope to stop a catastrophe… High octane super fast so that fans of romantic suspense with a touch of sci fi will want to read supercharged.     — Harriet Klausner
