Book 2 in the Heroes of Quantico series- "An Eye for an Eye" by Irene Hannon follows along the same vein as her first book in this series. There's FBI agent Mark Sanders working as a field agent in St. Louis after accidently shooting a teenager in a robbery gone wrong and taking some time away from Quantico to deal with some of the emotional fallout from the shooting. While in St. Louis, he accidently runs into an old girlfriend, his first love in fact, Emily Lawson. Unfortunately during this ch ...more

Genre: Inspirational/suspense

FBI agent Mark Sanders has been transferred to the St. Louis office to allow the dust to settle following the tragic conclusion to a hostile robbery attempt. While there, he reconnects with his “first love,” Emily Lawson, just seconds before a sniper turns his rifle in their direction.

As Agent Sanders and his fellow operators work the case with their usual pro
An Eye for an Eye is my first Irene Hannon read, and it definitely won’t be my last. A couple of years ago I absolutely fell in love with Dee Henderson’s romantic suspense novels, particularly the O’Malley Series, which featured a set of siblings, each involved in a high-profile, intense, fascinating career. It’s been a bit of a search for me to find other books that match the “gold standard” set by the O’Malley series - comparable, equally absorbing romantic suspense novels that feature just th ...more

Irene Hannon's style is thoroughly enjoyable for someone who likes suspense and mystery. The back cover blurb presents the plot as a question of which one the killer is after - Mark or Emily? The opening shooting scene sets it up perfectly for either one to be the target. But it becomes clear very early in the story which one the killer is after. His reasons come out slowly, there is no information dump with his story. For Mark and Emily, sometimes information comes in chunks but flows naturally ...more
I was eager to see if this book was able to match the caliber of "Against All Odds" - it did so and then some! One thing that I liked from the start is that the three main characters (the "Heroes of Quantico") are again all featured throughout the novel.A surprise reunion after a twenty year absence, the loss of a loved on "in the line of duty", and feelings of guilt following two horrific accidents all are central to the development of this story. Mark's shooting accident (which occurred after ...more

It had been blindingly fast. While grabbing a coffee at a convenience store FBI agent Mark Sanders had been caught in a hostage/robbery situation. A tense standoff resulted in the accidental shooting of the teenage clerk and the end result is that Mark finds himself riding out the subsequent bad PR and emotional damage in the short staffed St. Louis office.

He's on a run when his new mission yields the pleasantest of surprises. The lovely woman walking towards him on the trail is none other than
Reading Fanatic
This is the third book I've read by this author, and I can now say with confidence that I am a Hannon fan. I first met the H of this book, Mark Sanders, when I read Fatal Judgment. Mark was the FBI agent who headed up the investigation of the murder attempt against Liz, the h of that book. I was intrigued by a comment Mark made about almost losing his wife a year previous, to a sniper, and immediately set out to ascertain whether or not Mark had his own story. I was completely delighted to learn ...more
2.5 stars. The story itself could have been very good but I had to drop the rating because the woman, Emily, was a committed Christian and when she met up with a "lost love", Mark, he fully admitted, almost immediately, that he didn't believe anymore. It was brought up a couple more times & his response stayed the same. Yet, when Emily would think through & debate the reasons she should not get involved with Mark NEVER once did she mention their differences in belief. By the end he had s ...more
After reading Against All Odds, I had hoped this one would be better. While the pacing problems that I found plagued the first book were not prevalent in this installment, I found that this one did not improve upon it's predecessor. The author's note at the end of the book even gave some insight as to why things felt off in the first book!

Where the first book was subtle about faith, this one was not, even going to the point of being preachy. Granted, the killer in this book needed to and helped

Dr. Emily Lawson hasn’t seen her former boyfriend Mark Sanders in many years. They meet again and suddenly a sniper shoots at them. Is the target Mark, who works for the FBI or Emily who is a psychologist? The novel traces their relationship, now colored by their pasts. It contains religious overtones. The ending solves the mystery of the sniper and the motive for the shooting. It is a pleasant read, but moves slowly at times with respect
I found this story easier to follow than the first book in the series. After the shooting incident at the beginning the police are left to figure out whether it was Mark or Emily who was the target. As readers we find out fairly early on who was the intended target and as you get deeper into the story you find out why. The police however have very little leads to go on and you begin to wonder if they will ever be able to catch the person responsible. I felt the story moved at a good pace and acc ...more
My reading has been pretty darn sporadic but I have completed this book, which I won from Goodreads. Several comments....for the most part this is not the genre of book I read (romance), but there was also a bit of a mystery. For starters the romance part of the novel was predictable. Boy and girl reunite, some tension, and ultimately fall into each others lives. Yadayada. I did not find the relationship development compelling particularily. And, I initially found that it distracted me from what ...more

Book Two in the Heroes of Quantico Series, has Mark and Coop teamed up again, however they are not on a HRT assignment. Mark is recuperating and laying low after a accidental shooting, where he was shot and an innocent bystander was killed, and the FBI has him laying low for a while on a temporary assignment in St Louis.

However things never stay dull around Mark Sanders and at a chance meeting of an old friend at a park, they are shot

I had the privilege of interviewing Irene Hannon, author of “An Eye For An Eye” which is the second book in the Heroes of Quantico series published by Revell Books. The focus this time is on Mark Sanders, an agent of the FBI's exclusive Hostage Rescue Team.

The book begins with Mark Sanders in St. Louis recovering from a gunshot wound. On an early morning jog he meets an old flame, Emily Lawson, and as they are getting reacquainted someone shoots at one of them. The problem is no one can be sure
An Eye for An Eye is the second book in the Heroes of Quantico series. It doesn't matter though. I haven't read the first one and it was not a problem to follow the characters in this book.

I enjoyed that it was written with a St. Louis setting since I live so close. I could easily place the characters and the officers uniforms which made it fun.

The chance meeting and shooting almost seemed to coincidental to me but I moved past that pretty fast, realizing that to engage a reader action needs to
Irene Hannon has done it again. AN EYE FOR AN EYE, the second book in the Heroes of Quantico series, continues where AGAINST ALL ODDS leaves off.

Mark Sanders, a member of the FBI Hostage Rescue Team finds himself in St. Louis recovering from an accidental shooting. While he debates his future and the emotional fallout from a botched rescue attempt, he runs into Emily Lawson, his childhood sweetheart. Their chance meeting in a park turns from nostalgia to sniper fire. Both Emily and Mark are hit
I wanted a couple of quick reads to complete my 2012 Goodreads Challenge. This second book in Irene Hannon's Quantico series fits the bill. At first, I wondered when she would get around to tying the story to the first book. She does. At first, the action is as violent as the first book, and she passes the test of good writing; I wanted to read more. Not a spoiler; you will read soon enough that one of her new characters, a strong female hero, gets shot by a sniper.

It was not as quick a read as

As he is on a morning jog one Saturday morning he recognizes someone from his past. Emily - he loved her 20 years ago as a teenager in Tennessee but he hasn't seen her since. She is just as surprised, and pleased to see him. They make plans to go have coffee when a shot rings out. Mark's traini ...more
An Eye for An Eye is the second book in Irene Hannon's Heroes of Quantico Series; although Hannon admits that this was the first one she wrote. Against All Odds was the first book in the series and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but didn't remember how much until reading this one. Irene Hannon creates real characters and always has at least one strong Christian in her books. In An Eye for An Eye, Emily Lawson is that person. After 20 years she runs into her first love, Mark Sanders, minutes before a s ...more
This book #2 in the Heroes of Quantico series. This is a stand alone book. Each book in the series of three tells a story of one of three friends. This story is about Mark Sanders. Sanders is an FBI agent. he has recently been shot and is recovering both physically and mentally away from Quantico. One day as he is jogging in the park he comes across another jogger, a familiar one.
Emily Lawson is also jogging in the park that same Saturday morning. Emily and Mark were teenage sweethearts. Neither
The beginning of 'An Eye For An Eye' is about Mark Sander who after an accidental shooting in a cafe, which kills the cashier, is sent to St. Louis to work as a field agent while the bad press settles. While there he meets his first love, Emily Lawson who is now a psychologist, during a jog in a park. Their reunion is cut a sniper. Emily is shot but it's not clear who was the intended target - Mark or Emily.

The book continues with both Emily and Mark feeling attraction for each other
I liked the main storyline. This book I enjoyed more than her first in the series. In fact, Hannon mentions that she wrote "An Eye for An Eye" before the one she placed as number one. However, the romantic scenes were a little cheesy. James Parker's descriptions are a little too intense but certainly not smarmy.

"He enjoyed her curves pressed against his body" we're told more than once, great legs (of course)and essentially a "brick house" in every other physical aspect. He tries to win her over

Mark and Emily haven't seen each other for 20 years. They fell in love the summer they both spent at Wren Lake. They lost touch with each other after that summer, but never seemed to forget their first love.

A chance meeting in the park brings them together again. While making arrangements to get together someone shoots at them. The shooter injures Emily.

The question is who was the shooter's actual target. Was it Mark who is on the Hostage Rescue Team? Could it be a criminal that he had put behi
This was an exciting book to read, and had both suspense and romance. If you enjoy mysteries, I recommend this book. Irene Hannon has obviously done a great deal of research on the FBI, and the storyline seems very plausible. I would actually give it 4 1/2 stara if that was possible. I couldn't wait to find out what happened, and the romantic part of the story was clean and well-done. There were two possible targets for the perpetrator at the beginning of the story, and the only thing that disap ...more
This story was interesting enough to hold my attention and romantic enough to make me smile. Those kisses slipped in here and there were just often enough to make me savor the romantic element in the story. I think it's worth taking the time to read. There are good character arcs and the spiritual content seemed believeable enough. It was good seeing a strong and compassionate woman portrayed in the plot. The only thing that annoyed me was the constant referring to Wren Lake. It could have been ...more

Definitely fast-paced and exciting. I read the book in an evening and didn't want to put it down. It had the right amount of suspense, the right amount of romance. Who is the sniper and which one was the actual target: Mark or Emily? It's Christian without being preachy: Mark has lost his faith, but Emily's is strong and predictably, Mark finds his again. Great conversations make a story better and I loved the banter between Mark and Emily and Mark and his FBI colleagues.

This is the second of a
I read the first one in this series and found myself chuckling at one situation then crying at the next. I love when that happens. I enjoyed this title, but I could not score it as high because Irene is capable of better. She did do a fairly good job at keeping the reader guessing who the target was until half-way to three-fourths of the way through.

I have enjoyed every book I have read by Irene Hannon. She is one of my favorite authors. I really liked Mark and Emily. They are well developed characters and the story line has intense suspense. I really wasn't sure who they were shooting at. It is one of those books you do not want to put down once you start reading...

I was able to check this book our of our local library and read it on my Nook. There must have been some trouble transferring it from print to electronic copy. This was evident in errors in dialog and paragraphs not being separated properly. It was a wee bit annoying, but the story was so good that I pushed on through!

Ms. Hannon took no time in jumping into the story. She also did a great job in presenting two possible scenarios which kept me reading to see how things were going to unfold.
