Book Review - Crossfire by Traci Hunter Abramson

From the back of the book: Special Agent Vanessa Lauton is living a lie. For the past year she's been posing as a member of the Dominican Republic's most powerful crime family in order to infiltrate a Caribbean terrorist organization. When her CIA contact has a heart attack, he's replaced by U.S. Navy SEAL squad member Seth Johnson - the man Vanessa nearly married six years before. And suddenly the heat is on, in more ways than one.

Terrorist kingpin Akil Ramir sequesters Vanessa and Seth in his Nicaraguan fortress, where they learn of an impending attack on American soil. The Saint Squad is dispatched to calm the storm, but even their heroic efforts can't stop multiple threats from escalating. Adrenaline rises as the squad confronts enemies who will stop at nothing to sabotage national security - and Vanessa finds herself caught in the crossfire.

Traci Hunter Abramson just has a way about her. Everything she writes is crisp and precise, drawing the reader into the suspense of the moment and making it all seem completely real. Her years of experience working for the CIA play in her favor in adding that element of believability to her stories.

I did get a little confused here and there with all the characters and all the names, but that didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the story. Fast-paced, attention-grabbing, and definitely another triumph for this already very seasoned author.
