Attacked and fleeing for her life, biologist Audrey Lockhart is forced to put her trust in an enigmatic stranger who saves her from certain death.
Working in the shadows, CIA Officer Patrick Killion needs to figure out if the feisty frog biologist is a deadly assassin or an innocent scapegoat. And the only way to do that, is to gain her trust.
Audrey discovers her rescue was actually an abduction and the man she thought was her savior is her captor. And in the world of covert ops she's terrified she's nothing more than a pawn in the game she doesn't understand.

"This is one of those stories you can't put down."
"I've loved every book in this series, but this is the best yet."
Great addition to the Cold Justice series. Toni writes a great story with characters you want to spend time getting to know. I like not being able to guess who the bad guys are after reading the first chapter. Can't wait for the next book in the series!
Backpack in hand, this is a hot adventure
I have enjoyed every single book in this series, each one has its own touch of awesomeness. Alex Parker is my favorite male character but Patrick Killion had my attention from the first time he showed up in an investigation back in book #2 and he couldn't have been better in his own book. Cold in the Shadows is probably my favorite book in the series. In a way, the theme is more focused on adventure than the others books as they are more focused on serial killers and treason and each book with its own set. Patrick and Audrey are well written characters, they evoke fun, smart vibes and sexual chemistry at its best from the very beginning; they are perfect for each other. Cold in the Shadows combines adventure, action, suspense, romance and smooth wit.
I am looking forward to reading more about Noah as well as Logan, hopefully they get their own book.
Even the CIA can fall in love
Several books ago in this series when the Vice President was murdered, his killer is still in the loose. Patrick Killion, CIA is tracking the murderer, a female. All intel points to Audrey Lockhart an expert of frogs in Columbia. Well it doesn’t take long, like page 10 when Patrick and Audrey are on the run. It takes Patrick a tad longer to realize that things are not adding up. The players know them, they just have figure the players themselves.
Patrick has always come across aloof, you know, the CIA type, cold, no heart. Ha Ha. The man melts like a puddle while trying to keep his CIA face on. Neither Frazer or Jed razz Him, after all they too have fallen. New intro of some yummy Brits.
I have given all these books 4 stars. They are just shy of a 5 rating. And I mean just shy.
