Book Review - The Traitor's Pawn


When FBI agent Jack Shannon arrives in Corpus Christi, Texas, he is focused on one thing: find the man who has been selling encrypted government secrets to the Chinese. But when a senator is shot during a hunting trip and the woman he was with is abducted, Jack agrees to join the search--especially when he discovers that the kidnapping victim is Aubrey Grayson, a woman he was once in love with.

As the search continues, it becomes clear the senator may not have been the intended victim--and Aubrey may be connected to the other case Jack is supposed to be working on. Can Jack untangle the knots before it's too late? And when he learns the truth, will it be too painful to get past?

I really love a good action packed book with a great mystery story line and this book absolutely delivers.  There's a lot of suspense and intrigue that make it a page turner.

Aubrey is on the police force in Houston, where she's been under a lot of strain and threats from a suspect now in jail.  She has decided to head to the wetlands and meet up with one of her favorite persons, former Senator Grant McKenna. She practically grew up as part of his family and needed to get away for this duck hunting trip with him and his sons.  Unfortunately, things don't go as she hoped and her troubles follow her.

FBI agent Jack Shannon is part of the team that is looking into the situation where the Senator was shot and Aubrey missing. He was in love with her when they were younger, and he's still in love with her. This makes it very personal for him.

There were some areas where I felt like things slowed down, mainly due to dragging dialogue, hence my taking away one star.  During these times in the book, it changed the pace of the book and felt awkward to me.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book.  It had a great suspenseful story and the characters were well developed.  I give this book 4 stars.
