Summary

Summary

Book 1 in The O'Malley SeriesA CBA BestsellerKate O'Malley's specialty is hostage situations, and she's learned to depend only on herself in a crisis. But now Kate's a target. Someone's been sending her black roses . . . maybe the same person who just blew up an airplane and blamed her. Faced with the shocking evidence that the bomber may be someone she knows, Kate has to decide if FBI special agent Dave Richman - and the God he trusts so implicitly - is all he's supposed to be.

Library Journal Review

Henderson's series has an intriguing hook: the seven O'Malley siblings, who adopted each other and changed their names to reflect their new family. In this first entry, Chicago hostage negotiator Kate O'Malley meets Dave Richman (the FBI agent from Henderson's Danger in the Shadows) while she's talking a bank gunman into releasing hostages. Impressed by her professionalism and attracted to her personally, Dave starts courting the aloof Kate, only to discover that she's not a Christian, a major stumbling block for him. As he struggles to understand why she doesn't believe in God, a threat from Kate's past, an airline bombing, a family tragedy, and the discovery of a biological brother threaten to break this strong woman. Solid storytelling, compelling characters, and the promise of more O'Malleys make Henderson a name to watch. Highly recommended, with a cross-genre appeal. (c) Copyright 2010.
