Lexi and Slash, a government agent and fellow hacker, have been dating for a while. She finally gets up the nerve to bring him home to meet her parents (he's her first boyfriend) and someone starts shooting through the window during the soup round. A memory stick is found in the kitchen which leads them back to Johannes Broodryk, who Lexi had foiled in "No Test for the Wicked". Broodryk is forcing Lexi to make the decision between saving a friend or saving her country. Working with the Navy SEALS, Lexi hopes she can save them both.

Though this is the sixth in the Lexi Carmichael series, it works as a stand alone as you are provided with enough background. I'm enjoying the series and thought this book was just okay (I've enjoyed some of the others more). While I liked the writing style, I'm not into stories about cyber terrorism or Navy SEALS ... plus this one was really technical. I found this and the last book were so serious and not as much fun as the first four in the series. I had a hard time believing that geeky non-social Lexi is now roaming around Africa catching bad guys.

It is written in first person perspective from Lexi's point of view. Slash and her best friend, Elvis, have a large roles in this story. Her other best friend, Basia, and Elvis' twin brother, Xavier, are barely in the book. I miss the interactions between Lexi, Elvis and Xavier because the three of them were so geeky and naïve.

So not my favourite in the series but I look forward to Lexi's future adventures.
