For Navy SEAL Chief Cosmo Richter, idle time is wasted time. So when he finds himself facing a month's leave with little to do, he offers his services to Troubleshooters Inc. Founded by a former SEAL, the private-sector security firm offers the public expert assistance in extreme situations- while also carrying out covert missions too volatile for official U.S. military action. But the first case Richter takes on is anything but under the radar. High-profile maverick movie producer Jane Mercedes Chadwick hasn't quite completed her newest film, but she's already courting controversy. The World War II epic frankly portrays the homosexuality of a real-life hero-and the storm of advance media buzz surrounding it has drawn the fury of extremist groups, including the neo-nazi Freedom Network. But despite a relentless campaign of angry e-mails, phone calls, and smear tactics, Chadwick won't be pressured into abandoning the project. Then the harassment turns to death threats, and her nervous Hollywood associates call in Troubleshooters. Now Jane has an army of round-the-clock bodyguards, whether she likes it or not. And she definitely doesn't, even after coming under fire.
Determined to succeed-and survive - on her own terms, she's prepared to face off with enemies and allies alike. But she isn't ready for the bond of trust and empathy that forms with the quiet, capable Cosmo Richter. Yet even as their feelings draw them closer, the noose of deadly terror all around them draws tighter. And when all hell erupts, desire and desperate choices will collide on a killing ground that may trap them both in the crosshairs. Rich with the relentless action and passionate emotion that Suzanne Brockmann has made her unmistakable hallmarks, "Hot Target" hits its mark unerringly and scores a bull's-eye from first electrifying page to last.
