I ventured into new Stuart Woods territory with this book (on CD). Afer having read or listened to 12 of the 21 Stone Barrington novels, this one features another of his popular fictional characters, i.e., Holly Barker. With a background as a small-town-Florida Police Chief, she has been recruited by the CIA. The early part of this book covers the period of her training at "The Farm," which is the CIA training center. She and her surviving classmates (many had to be weeded out) have their training cut several weeks short in order to man a special Presidential-established task force in New York City to apprehend a rogue ex-CIA officer who is killing foreign "terrorists" who have diplomatic immunity. The trail takes many unexpected turns, and Holly is in the thick of the action. Stone Barrington even makes a brief appearance.

Lots of action and suspense!!! Recommended to Stuart Woods fans and other who might think they could be.
