Good, but confusing time lines,

This review is from: Breaking Point (Troubleshooters) (Mass Market Paperback)
Very good romantic suspense novel. However, I personally found the time lines very confusing in it, the effect being disjointed for me in places. It constantly changes from present day to 22 months ago, 4 months ago, 17 months ago, present day for three quarters of the book, in no particular order. So you have to be very aware of the sub-heading to give you the time period.
The novel centres on two couples, Max and Gina and Grady and Molly. Max is the head of an elite section of the FBI; Gina and Molly are aid workers; Grady who goes by several alias's is an ex- Special Forces soldier who was captured several years ago while on mission against drug barons. He is thrown into prison, tortured repeatedly and left for dead by the American powers that be. Rescued by a drugs baron, he works for him before going on the run from him. Consequently he is wanted by the Americans and the drugs baron.
Gina is twenty years younger than Max. He, very much a loner and screwed up emotionally, finds this difficult to handle and has rejected her love, in consequence she has gone to Kenya to work. The drug baron is now dead, and Grady hoping that he can now stop running, goes to see Molly in Kenya. They haven't seen each other for three years. A twist on the age thing is that Molly is ten years older than Grady. However, it soon becomes apparent when both Molly and Gina are kidnapped, that someone else is after Grady. Max and Grady have to work together to rescue the women and get out of Indonesia. Light relief is Max's gay subordinate Jules.
