Adventure story featuring another of the Wright brothers. This time Kyle, the intelligent doctor turned spy, is about to see the culmination of 4 years work. His ‘boss’, international crime lord Montero, is about to go down. Montero has had Kyle working to manufacture the smallpox virus, which Montero plans to sell to the highest bidder. But Kyle isn’t the one doing the manufacturing by chance. Co-incidentally, Delanie Eastman’s sister has been kidnapped by Montero – or so Delanie (rightfully – although it’s for his mother’s project) believes. Even more co-incidentally, Delanie and Kyle had a brief but brutal fling directly before Kyle began working for Montero. Neither knows the other’s agenda now that they meet again. Against this background of distrust and danger, each must try to achieve their own objective and attempt to put aside the strong attraction they have for the other. Oh yes, and get out of the compound alive. High action and drama abound here in the very nature of the rather fantastical plot. That Kyle is on one side super intelligent, and the other a dangerous mercenary type (in image terms – he’s one of the good guys) makes for a very attractive if highly-unlikely-in-real-life hero. Hey, the plot doesn’t shout ‘real’ to me either. And that’s really not the point. Delanie is very likeable, and both characters have a determination to do their best for their family (Delanie) and country (Kyle). As the attraction between them leaps high once again, the erotic aspects of the story come to play in a suitably highly charged atmosphere. Phew! Quite a story.
