4.0 out of 5 stars Time is on my side... erm, no. It isn't., 5 Mar 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Breaking Point (Troubleshooters) (Mass Market Paperback)
Right, before we get into this review, a little background on the characters will be helpful. Max and Gina have a bit of a history - which is complicated by guilt, regrets and loads of love. Oh, as well as a twenty year difference in ages that one party can't get past. Nice.

A couple years ago, Gina got into some trouble with some terrorists on a plane, and Max Bhagat, FBI head negotiator tried to talk the terrorists down, but not before Gina was horrifically assaulted. So, although Gina wants a relationship, Max is still trying to battle through the circumstances of their initial meeting and his feelings towards her. Got that? Good.

The story in this book is this: Gina's name comes up on a log of people who died in an explosion in Germany, and Max Bhagat heads to Germany to claim her body - only to find out that Gina is alive... but missing. With Jules Cassidy on assist - as well as Jones, an ex soldier and perhaps a traitor - who can lead Max to Gina.

The time line in this book is very non linear, in that the story swings from up to 23 months ago to the present day. Personally, I found the time shifts effective, in the sense that it kept the story moving, as well as heightening Max's emotional state from then to the present. Jones (the US ex- soldier) has his own woes with the woman he loves - he has a killer on his trail as well as a spectre of death which threatens to ruin the happiness that he and his woman (Molly) might have. Dramatic, romantic suspense with a capital D, that.

I enjoyed the book. It was worth the money. Will read again.
