A vacation out of the city sounds like just the ticket for Tori Hunter and Sam Kennedy. Joining their Dallas Police Department pals Casey O'Connor and Leslie Tucker in a rented RV, they set out for the New Mexico mountains - and on a collision course with a manhunt. FBI agents Cameron Ross and Andrea Sullivan are tracking a deadly quarry in desolate territory. An ex-teammate from Cameron's Special-Ops days is in deep hiding, planning who-knows-what to cap off a killing spree.
With a hostage at stake and time running out, Cameron reluctantly agrees to outside help from women she doesn't know...or trust. In the crossover that fans have been clamoring for, it's a heart-pounding race against time that challenges the courage and commitment of the exceptional women from Gerri Hill's Hunter's Way and Devil's Rock Series.

I love audio books and listening to them while I draw or paint. They help to level me and take away the stress while drawing.
The novel feels like the last chapters of another one. The story is not really a romance, and as a hostage-crime drama it didn't really keep my attention. There wasn't much character development, bring the reader along, and I did not latch onto anyone really in the novel. I think that is because the characters are from other previous novels I have not real. The story focuses around two couples, (FBI agents/Cops) and a sniper who runs amok ant takes Sam as a hostage, into woulds to be tracked by Cameron her partner, and Sam's partner. The big problem I had with the story was Sam's behavior towards angel, who was basically a cold killer, including children. She seems to warm to him, and to me this did lost a level of believe-ability. There is no really build up of tension, romantic or threat-wise. It was an easy listen and I decided to complete it. But it wont be very memorable, for me anyway. As always, Abby Craden did a great job of narrating.
The premise was good; the relationship between Sam and Angel was nuanced and well done and there were parts of the law enforcement portion was done pretty well too.
On the other hand the 'butch' pair of of Tori and Cameron were so prototypical for both the classic butch and for movie or TV FBI agents it was sad. That goes for some of the scenes with the other agents too. At some point millennials really have to start doing lesbian fiction and give some of the lame cliches and storylines the merciful death they deserve. The same goes for the stereotypes that fill those books; until then selections like this will have to do.
Several of my favorite characters come together to work a case. A great listen from start to finish. Love all of Gerri hills' books.
Can't pick just one. All 4 of the women. Hope to see all of them together again.
Can't say now.
It would be nice if this could be a film. It has plenty of action and romance, and I would like to see all 4 woman together kicking butt.
