|Plot Summary of Full Pursuit|
Melody Beecham, an undercover operative for the government-funded agency of Unit One, is sent to infiltrate a religious organization called the Soldiers of Jordan. Her assignment is to use seduction as a means to penetrate the secret operations of the organization and relay that information to Unit One.
After her entrance onto the property, Melody is stripped of all communication tools linking her to the outside world. She finds that her every move is being monitored through hidden cameras. She gains access to the organization's computers and is able to skillfully transmit valuable information to Unit One. She finds an arsenal of weapons hidden on the property.
After realizing the organization's intent is to blow up a mosque, she attempts to contact Nikolai Anwar, her superior, but is interrupted when a Jordan member injects her with a drug.
She is restrained and physically battered but is finally rescued by Nikolai. The two of them are flown to the mosque where Unit One believes the big hit will take place.

Mira, Nov 2004, 6.50, 400 pp.
Though she enjoys her assignments working for the top secret Unit One, Melody Beecham has not forgotten that she is a “blackmailed” participant. Her latest project reminds her of the negative side of her work. She is to join the Soldiers of Jordan and, if necessary, seduce the leader Zachary Wharton, in order to spy on their activities; this white supremacist group has plans that will shake the nation if they succeed.
Melody travels to White Falls, Idaho to the campus of the church of the Soldiers of Jordan and gets inside, but her relationship with fellow Unit One operative Nikolai Anwar implodes. Still he remains her hope of staying alive in this dangerous undertaking. She knows that a reporter for the Idaho Chronicle died while investigating this sect and two FBI agents were identified and tossed off campus. Someone inside the Feds is feeding Zachary in his war of hate against Islam and Christian moderates; there is no telling what he would do if he learns Melody's identity.
