Homeland Security Investigators Pope Dades and Felix Jbarra have been partnered for six months and the excitement on and off the job keeps getting better. Working together every day is generally routine but when the partners are assigned to supplement the Secret Service on a VIP protection detail, things really begin to heat up.
An alternative energy conference is being held in Los Angeles. When Felix and Pope learn they’ll be bodyguards to a Saudi Arabian prince, they’re expecting rides in fancy limousines, a stay at the world-famous Beverly Wilshire Hotel, and exotic food. What they don’t expect is being once again thrown into the line of fire… literally.
Someone has put out a hit on Prince Ali ibn Abd Pasha and the killers want it carried out on US soil to embarrass the Americans in retaliation for US news coverage over the murder of one of their journalists late last year. Felix and Pope only learn of the danger to the prince when a Secret Service agent friend is nearly killed.
Pope and Felix dive headfirst into another exciting case but when they learn the man they’re guarding might be involved in arms trafficking because of ties to Mills Lang, they are forced to once again call on their buddies at the ATF.
Action, intrigue, and danger abound in the thrilling conclusion of the Thin Blue Line series.
This is number 3 in series. From the beginning it never lets reader catch his breath: two heroes are immediately plunging into action. There is easy familiarity to the story and characters are easy to connect with. It has good flow and even pacing.
The plot unravels gradually drawing other characters in. Its jam packed with action and draws heavily on camaraderie we see on cop buddy shows.
Pope and Felix are as hot as ever. The only complain I have is that the story sometimes tries to hard so it veered into unrealistic.
But the writing style is engaging and both characters and the plot are attention grabbers!
I’m not sure how to summarize the plot as there is little bit of everything. Suffice to say that Pope and Felix are once again in thick of things.
It certainly delivers on promise of title!
