From Publishers Weekly

Adair delivers a steamy fusion of romance and heart-stopping suspense with this second T-FLAC (Terrorist Force Logistic Assault Command) thriller (after 2005’s Hot Ice). Max Aries prides himself on being a womanizer, but his earlier brief, tantalizing affair with talented art restorer Emily Greene has unforeseen repercussions when she contacts him about his father’s apparent suicide in Florence, Italy. Daniel Aries, Emily’s mentor in art restoration, had been hired to copy masterpieces for a reclusive Denver philanthropist with Emily’s aid. When Max slips into Emily’s Florence apartment, he finds her battling an intruder who leaves behind a suspicious vial. The resulting investigation by T-FLAC, a privately funded group, grows to include Daniel’s death and a host of subsequent murders and explosions. As Max, Emily and the T-FLAC crew tangle with the evildoers, Max and Emily’s torrid romance almost, but not quite, upstages counterterrorist schemes to save a masterpiece beloved by art lovers and religious pilgrims alike.

From Batty’s Girl

Seeing this book on the shelf last week while at the library was like running into an old friend after not having seen them for a while.  I had discovered Cerry Adair back in 2006 and blogged about her here then exhausted what she had written and forgotten about her!  So I was pleased to find a T-FLAC book I hadn’t read.  I admit that I had figured out who was behind the attacks right after his character was introduced and that it had its dull moments but I cared about the characters a lot and even though the plot was incredible I enjoyed running with it.

Don’t let this be the first of her T-FLAC books you read but once you’re hooked give it a shot 🙂
