El romance es algo totalmente secundario y para creérselo hay que dar un salto de fe y me daría igual si la trama de acción me hubiera atrapado, pero siendo un tema tan interesante me ha parecido de lo más soso.
I was a little ticked off with Suzanne Brockmann for not giving me Max's story next. What was a little different with this instalment in the series is that it was really only one story. I also enjoyed Decker, who reminds me a little of Max, in that he's a calm leader who always tries to do the right thing, until he doesn't. Like all the other books in the series, this was suspenseful, sexy, a little heart-tugging, and fun.
There are lots of new characters introduced in this story and several of them have key roles in the plot, but the main focus is on former agency operative James/Diego Jimmy Nash and computer techie Tess Bailey as they navigate a dangerous mission in Kazbekistan after a recent earthquake to recover the laptop of a top-ranking al-Qaeda leader.
Nash and Decker are part of the group infiltrating the country. We have a lot of brand new characters in this book, including Nash, Decker and Tess.
In Flashpoint the seventh book in the highly acclaimed Troubleshooter Series by Suzanne Brockmann we're introduced to a whole new group of heros. I did, I went with meeting these new characters that we've never met in the Troubleshooter Series, well all except Tom. In many ways Ms. Brockmann really wowed me with parts of Flashpoint. Nash is not your typical hero, like many of Brockmann's past males characters he's flawed and not in the looks department but in the truth and honesty department. I wanted to yell at him to trust Tess because she could be trusted with these secrets but unfortunately it took most of this book for him to realize what he had found in this amazingly smart, confident and beautiful women. Deck, is Nash's partner and friend but for most of this book you wouldn't know if for all the ways Decker bad mouths him. At first I thought they weren't that close, Nash and Deck but once the story progressed and I realized they had been on many missions together and have a long relationship. Deck is not angel he's made mistakes in the past and in this book, he's going to be a great character to read more about.
The ending was not epic, but really good The only constant is the solid and sweet sweet writing and the fact that I,loved it to pieces!
BUT, there was no one in this book that I wanted to brain more than Lawrence Decker. Deck, the one who was supposedly Nash's very best friend. So why was it that Deck didn't realize how Nash felt about Tess. Throughout the whole book it was Nash rushing to Decks aid to keep him safe. It took Tess all of one night to figure out, but supposedly Deck and Nash are like 'intuitive twins' or whatever. I'll tell you what, Decker was the most self-centered character in a Troubleshooter book so far. AND the best part was this was a Troubleshooters book that only had one romance!
Their mission is to nab a laptop of a warlord playing ball with the evil team. Another guy on the team, their leader, has to struggle with restraining his lust for a mysterious American woman sought by the warlord who tries to use sex to buy his protection.
