|Plot Summary of Lady Justice|
Bantam, Aug 2004, 6.50, 448 pp.
Being female and steely tougher than any man, Senior Secret Service Agent Gabrielle Kincaid of the Special Detail Unit not only relishes her nickname as the “Queen Bitch”, but thrives to enhance it. She believes that cold iron cerebral decisions keep an agent like her working undercover to counter terrorists alive.
Currently, she works a case in the Carnal Cove, Florida area where biological contamination of crops has killed over forty people here and in Texas. When a Global Warrior attacks Gabby, she realizes that her cover that enabled her to infiltrate the group is probably blown. Her superiors in DC assign her partner Max Grayson to kill Gabby because they insist no one must know that the SDU exists. Gabby must stay alive to stop a viable threat using Eastern Equine Encephalitis infected mosquitoes and a test virus that could kill millions while doing this she finds the answers lead to high level corruption and greed.
This is an exhilarating action-packed anti-terrorist thriller that hooks readers from the July 4th start at various North American locals. The fast-paced story line accelerates when Gabby becomes the prey that if assassinated could lead to a disaster. Making matters ironically worse is that Max is the only person she loves and she knows he will perform ACTS OF HONOR for his country over his feelings. Though the federal conspiracy has been done many times before, readers will enjoy the terrific LADY JUSTICE.
