Publisher's Weekly Review

In this page-turner that fuses thriller and romance, Air Force attorney Captain Tracy Keener has been assigned the toughest case of her careerÄthe defense of Captain Adam Burke, an Intel operative accused of killing and abandoning his men while on a covert mission. Opinion around the base is unanimous about Burke's guilt, and the attorney becomes the target of numerous death threats and attempts on her life. Keener's idealistic nature prevails over fear, pushing her to search for the truth, even after Burke is supposedly killed in a prison fire and she is ordered by superiors to close the case. Burke's mysterious return and collaboration with Keener allow the pair to uncover a widespread governmental conspiracy, dubbed "Project Duplicity," that involves dangerous new chemical technology. Although the ending will seem too neat for some readers, Hinze (Shades of Gray; Festival, under the pen name Victoria Barrett) has a knack, as illustrated in Burke and Keener's complex relationship, for combining compellingly realistic characterizations with suspense and a romantic plot line.

Library Journal Review

Military lawyer Capt. Tracy Keener is ordered to defend Adam Burke, who has been accused of treason, cowardice, and killing his own men. However, meeting Adam plants the seeds of doubt in her mind, and when he is apparently murdered, Tracy vows to find out what really happened. Her search for the truth puts her own life in danger. Written in the tradition of A Few Good Men, this highly suspenseful story of a solitary woman's fight against an evil military conspiracy is one readers won't want to put down. Hinze, a resident of Niceville, FL, is the author of another military intrigue, Shades of Gray.ÄSM (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
