Economic terrorism, espionage, reeeally bad guys!

6 mths ago, Lacy Merrick lost her husband in a terrorist attack in a mall in Alexandria, VA. Then she and a rag tag bunch of friends from the FBI and CIA worked together to clear her husband’s name as the bomber. Just when she believes that her life has returned to normal, she learns that the Chinese ambassador, who had orchestrated the attack, has been released from prison in China. Now an assassin is after Lacy and her group...but is it just the assassin, or is someone high up the chain of command in the US government also trying to silence the group? This is the second book in the series and, wow, I did not believe that it could be most fast paced than bk 1...but that it was and more. I look forward to reading more of Lacy and her group, as they are now a special task force that has been created by POTUS. Fantastic narration lends to the pulse racing drama!
I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Great Thriller!

Shadow Rising by Robin Mahle is listed as the second book in the series, yet I found it as a terrific standalone listen. I was immediately pulled into this story. I loved the unexpected twists, vivid imagery, developed characters, and realistic emotions. Action packed thrillers are a genre that I really enjoy, and this book is great. Caroline McLaughlin does a wonderful performance with the various characters, giving them distinguishable voices and bringing them to life. I found myself wondering who Lacy could really trust in this book. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.
