End Game (Capital Intrigue #1)
by: Rachel Dylan
About the Book:
When elite members of the military are murdered on the streets of Washington, DC, FBI Special Agent Bailey Ryan and NCIS Special Agent Marco Agostini must work together to bring the perpetrator to justice. Unfortunately, all evidence points to a Navy SEAL sniper whom Bailey refuses to believe is guilty.
When Bailey and Marco start to connect the dots between the victims, including a link to a powerful defense contractor, they wonder if there’s a deeper cover-up at play. Then Bailey is targeted, and it becomes clear that someone is willing to kill to keep their dark secrets.
With the stakes getting higher by the moment in a twisted conspiracy, there’s a rush against the clock to determine whom they can really trust. As allies turn to enemies, the biggest secret yet to be uncovered could be the end of all of them..
End Game is the second book I’ve read by Rachel Dylan and I’ve been impressed with this newer author. I’ve enjoyed her romantic suspense books as they give me all the twists and turns I desire without being gruesome or frightening. I really enjoyed End Game and am looking forward to reading the next in the series.
With End Game, you get to dive into the exciting world of government agencies- NCIS, FBI, JAG… and one I won’t mention as not to spoil the ending. Some things about this book reminded me of the hit television show, NCIS, including one of the characters, Margo Agostini.
There were a lot of characters to keep straight, starting with 3 pairs of main characters. I enjoyed the different relationships and dynamics between each of these pairs; it was not all romance. There are a lot of suspects and secondary characters. By the end, I was starting to get them confused.
The subplots bring a lot of emotion to the story, especially Izzy’s in particular. No one is safe in this fast-paced romantic suspense. Always expect the unexpected as the plot gets thicker and more dangerous, and like a well, this thing gets deeper than anyone saw coming.
The story has beautiful spiritual lessons that each of the character learn. I love how their faith helps them through the dark times.
I recommend this book for those who love fast-paced suspense and those who enjoy books about the US Government Law Enforcement agencies.
