Eye for an Eye Review

Irene Hannon's latest in the Heroes of Quantico series, An Eye for an Eye, is a perfect read when you're ready for a romantic suspense escape. Mark Sanders, a strong supporting role in the first book, is in St. Louis while he recuperates from a hostage situation gone bad in Virginia. While running he bumps into his first flame and then someone shoots at them. The book flows through the investigation and whether or not these two can now find love that passed them by twenty years earlier.

Mark and Emily, the heroine, are richly drawn characters. Both have to change if they are going to find the shooter. I loved how the author crafted the ending. It was a perfect ending based on the characters, but also a stretch for them because of their pasts. The romance is rich, the suspense thread fluid, and the book a great escape for those who love romantic suspense ala Dee Henderson. Irene Hannon has earned her spot on my list of must reads.

By Irene Hannon

After he accidentally shoots a teenager at a tense standoff, FBI Hostage Rescue Team member Mark Sanders is sent to St. Louis to work as a field agent and get his bearings while the bad press starts to settle. Just weeks away from returning to Quantico to resume his work on the HRT, Mark has a chance encounter with an old flame, Emily Lawson. But their reunion is cut short by a sniper. Now Mark must find the shooter before he tries to strike again. But what is his motive--and who was his intended target? Can Mark put the pieces together, keep Emily safe, and rekindle a long-dead relationship at the same time?

Ooh, gotta go find this one, too! I haven't read any of Irene's books yet. Just finished Randy Singer's book, The Justice Game, that you reviewed here. Fun read! I keep a list of ones you recommend here.

I just finished Against All Odds and appreciated your review of #2 in this series, Cara. I don't read a lot of suspense, but Irene Hannon is also on my list of must reads.
