RS Review: Dire Distraction (An A-Tac Novel) [Paperback]

I've finished "Dire Distraction" the 7th book in her A-Tac series by Dee Davis.

Product Description

As the commander for A-Tac, a black-ops CIA unit masquerading as Ivy League faculty, Avery Solomon is the best of the best. He'll stop at nothing to ensure the safety of his team, but when a mystery from the past resurfaces, he puts himself directly in the line of fire.


After years of covert missions, Avery harbors regrets that continue to haunt him. He still blames himself for his wife's death fourteen years ago - until an A-Tac operative finds a photo that suggests Avery's wife may still be alive. Determined to discover the truth, Avery heads deep into the hostile territory of Southeast Asia, ready for danger and violence-only to find himself captured by desire.

Wilderness guide Sydney Price never backs down from a challenge. She has her own reasons for wanting revenge against the men being hunted by Avery. Though she tries to deny her attraction to the tough, handsome warrior, the spirited Sydney soon finds him impossible to resist. Now she and Avery must work together to uncover the truth - and stay alive. But as the enemy closes in and old secrets unravel, the line between partners and lovers vanishes like mist in the jungle.

My Review:

A-Flac is the Black Ops of the CIA and when they aren't on missions they disguise themselves as professors of an Ivy League University.

Avery Solomon is the leader of A-Tac and a man everyone on his team respects and would put their life on the line for.

When a team member finds a picture of his dead wife of 14 years and an old friend during that time he decides he must investigate.  He must find out if she is alive or really dead and since it's a personal case he can't allow his team to back him up.

Sydney Price is the daughter of a school teacher (who is now an Ambassador) and a villager.   She is now a trained operative living in "the Golden Triangle" where Thailand, Myanmar and Laos come together.
