When Alina Maschik – code name “Viper” – flees Syria, she has a serious problem. Someone knows much more than they should about the elusive assassin. With orders to lie low, Alina returns to Medford, determined to do just that.
But once again, New Jersey refuses to co-operate.
The Casa Reino Cartel is moving mysterious cargo up the Eastern seaboard; a tragic accident in the Pine Barrens kills a local street racer; FBI Special Agent John Smithe is looking for answers where there shouldn’t be questions; metro area hospitals are stockpiling a new antidote, and an invisible foe has zeroed in on Viper.
A web of intrigue stretching from Damascus to the Pine Barrens has been skillfully cast. Now, Viper must confront ghosts from her past even as she fights to unravel a sinister plot before thousands of Americans die.
Okay, that headline might be a bit hard to take but the book is most definitely NOT hard on the eyes or the brain. It is, as usual in the Exit Series, a really fun, fast, and pleasant trip. I enjoy the daylights out of Viper and Hawk and their friends and colleagues and was pleased as punch to find, after having finished the 3rd book, that this one was ready. My only regret is that it will now be a while before the next one comes out. When it does, I’ll read it, too, cause this is a fun series.
