An unknown assassin has appointed himself judge, jury, and executioner, brutally taking out high-level human targets citywide. And the list of suspects is a sensitive one: an Iranian diplomat, a U.S. senator, and a vengeful priest. It's just the kind of case to test the resolve of tough FBI agent, Jaid Marlowe. Especially when her new partner is Adam Raiker, Jaid's former colleague and ex-lover. But that's history—and it left scars.

Determined to leave it behind them, Jaid and Adam dive into the most shocking investigation of their careers. But when Adam himself becomes a suspect, Jaid must choose between past and present. Her choice plunges them into a far-reaching, high-level conspiracy of shadows—and on the run not only from secrets and lies, but for their lives. Now, despite their history, they have only each other, and the desperate hope that love can keep them alive.

My rating:

What a complete an utter disappointment.

Slow, bland, dull with boring, uninteresting characters; a hero that could've been great, but was far removed from the glimpses of Adam Raiker we got throughout the series, and a bland, rather one-dimensional heroine. The romance, even though its "lukewarmness" is a staple in this series was sub par, the action scenes non-existent, there was just the slow drone of investigation that dragged the story into the abyss of boring alongside a predictable villain and motive.

The only spark in the darkness was the reunion of the entire team in order to get their boss out of trouble, but it came too late in the story to make any kind of difference.
