John Medina is a living legend with the CIA, a shadowy specialist in Black Ops, those operations that are never openly funded, and the details of which never see the light of day. Only few people inside the CIA know him on sight, while foreign governments offer bounties for him, dead or alive.
Neima Burdock is a communications specialist for the CIA who retired from field work after the death of her husband, also an agent and under orders from John Medina.
When Niema is needed in an arms deal operation headed by John she is extremely reluctant to take the job but her director convinces her. Niema and John enter the underground world of an international arms dealer and its many dangerous and glamorous intrigues.
They discover a passion for each other, but will they survive the race to evade the people who are trying to kill them and transmit the documents they have managed to steal?

Eve (everf) | 816 comments I read this story years ago, so look forward re-reading it.

I love those CIA books written by Linda Howard. LH really knows how to tell a story and mix spy parts with a good doze of romance. The scenes she creates of danger and suspense really hold you and make you keep reading. Just what you want in a good spy story.

John Medina is certainly very interesting character. I was intrigued by him in KILL AND TELL. Too often CIA agents are portrayed as emotionless, cold, unfeeling but Medina isn't like this. He's deadly and a man of mystery but I really liked him. However, Medina is not a man to mess with. Ever.
Niema was also great character, I love a kick-ass heroine!
I remember that my attention was also captured by the villain of this story -- for a bad guy he was portrayed pretty likeable and motivated for personal reasons.

Jessica (guiltypleasure22) | 12 comments I loved this book. Linda Howard can really write strong women paired with alpha men. She managed sweet, sexy, suspenseful.

yes! Very few authors can grip you from the first page/chapter/scene and make you want to keep reading.

I finished All The Queen's Men today and I have to say I liked this one a lot more than Kill And Tell, especially John and Niema.


Jessica (guiltypleasure22) | 12 comments I totally agree. It’s my favorite in the series. Niema is awesome.
