It's the book we've been waiting for and frankly, it's worth the wait. Suzanne Brockman's Troubleshooters series are quite frankly the most spiffy romance/action books you will read - ever. Buy them all now!
This time we're back with all the charactions you've seen before, most particularly this time Sam & Alyssa and Tom & Kelly.
Sam is in full Starrett-sauce mode, and Alyssa is again finding him rather hard to resist (well, you would).
They have to join together to figure out a terrorist plot (from 'Into the Night') and the end of the book takes some members of the team to the edge of a new direction altogether (sounds even more fun... if that's possible).
This isn't as passionate as 'Over the Edge' - which I think is the best of the series - but it's a great read: witty, intelligent, fun and steamy. What more could you want?
Roll on book 7.
Most of SEAL Team Sixteen make an appearance, and

Alyssa and Sam had an affair - blistering, exciting and could have been so much more - until Sam got married to the mother of his child. Fast forward eighteen months later, and Sam finds his wife's dead body - and his daughter missing. Alyssa, against her instincts decides to help Sam find his baby girl - and nothing more.

It might be best if you read the books before this one. It doesn't really stand up alone as a one off, and is probably more a 'bridge' for the rest of the series. I say this due to the relationship of Sam/Ayssa/Gina/Max - there's a LOT of back story there, and the author assumes that you know it - to the point where I wanted to put down the book and read the others before this one, so I could understand what was going on so much more.

Also, there is a lot of time shifts, from Sam in the present, flashbacks to various stages of Sam's childhood- to events that happened before he was born. Brockmann uses these events to paint a deeply complicated background of Sam Starrett that one appreciates - but after a while the time shifts became annoying and drew me out of the story.

A strength of the book was the pace of it - there was always something happening, something going on. You do have to pay attention while reading it, so that you can relish the payoff in the end. Alyssa and Sam aren't sweet characters, no- they are both very strong personalities who've hurt each other in the past, so there's caution to their interactions.

Overall, a decent read. I wouldn't go out of my way to read it again, and if it were one of the books that you bought in an airport, you'd feel rather disgruntled on the plane. Oh well.

ETA: read it again, especially after reading "Over the Edge" - yeah, I truly get Sam/Alyssa's relationship now.

Format: Hardcover
Gone to Far is the 6th book in the Troubleshooters series about Navy SEAL Team 16. Its a real page turner - but be aware once you've read it, you may well feel compelled to then read some of the earlier books in the series, namely 'Defiant Hero' and most particularly 'Into The Night'. The events of which are picked up and run with at some speed in 'Gone to Far'. Suzanne Brockmann is particularly good at introducing a group of characters at the beginning of a series and then exploring some of them in more detail in each book. In this book its the turn of Alyssa Locke and Lt Sam Starret, who are 2 of the most interesting and established characters encountered in the entire Troubleshooters series. I think its the best Troubleshooters book so far.

I confess I'm a "serialist" - once I start reading a book series in order I follow it religiously. I picked up the first two books Unsung Hero & Defiant Hero in the library and hence my love affair with the Troubleshooters books began.
This is probably the book everyone wants to read as Sam & Alyssa's love affair is spread over the first 5 books and we get glimps of their turbulent relationship. It's a rollercoaster ride but so funny at times it gets you completely hooked.
So when to my horror the library catalogue didn't have this book I purchased it on Amazon straight away (thoroughly annoyed that there was no immediate Kindle version).
Anyway, it's a great book, lots of stuff happening, not so many new characters rather the orignals from Unsung Hero and Over the Edge. The action keeps its pace, the mystery unfolds and you just feel part of the adrenaline and it ties up a lot of loose ends from previous books. Even the more unlikeable characters are potrayed so you can't help but sympathise. There is also a new direction for the series which after 6 books I think is a great idea to keep things fresh. For people new to the series probably not the best book to start off with.
Alas there were a few things lacking: the steamy passion scenes that I was expecting, the humour from the previous books was also a bit lost and there was a lot angst and emotion. For that it's a 4 star but still couldn't put it down until early hours of the morning. I'm off to check out the library stocks for the next book.
