Description

In the aftermath of a midnight raid on a critical defense contractor, Boone Hildebrandt finds herself entangled in a covert plot: one meant to transfer missile defense technology to a foreign power. When a White House Senior Staffer dies, Executive Branch players become suspect in a budding case of international intrigue.

Deducing the international intelligence agency InterLynk has involved itself in negating the initiative, a Senior Advisor to the President orders the Director of National Intelligence to bring the private firm under control. The task falls to his new Senior Case Officer and on-again love interest: call her Boone.

Torn between conflicting loyalties, she is challenged to balance duty, secrets, and developing faith as events test her personal and professional fortitude. Powers romantic, domestic, and international emerge equally determined to overcome any opposition. Boone and InterLynk must press forward in a dangerous contest; in threatening the peace of the Northern Hemisphere, the stakes allow no choice other than playing to win.

So worth it

Amidei raises the bar even further for his own work, and leads the genre in setting the standard in One Last Scent Of Jasmine.

The work immerses the reader in the current political climate and mindset, detailing the consequences of allowing tyranny on any level.

I find it amazing how each character, no matter the predominance of malevolence or benevolence, is quite believable and their characters are crafted to allow the reader to see something of themselves in the character and something of the character in themselves. This draws the reader irretrievably into the story and makes it real and meaningful.

One hopes for those embracing the dark, whether hero or villain, to turn away from it. Even when the heroes allow their lives to be wounded by embracing as much of the dark as needed to do what they believe is right, we hurt for them, admire their courage, and hope they can be healed. This is the world in which we live. They exemplify the real people in our world whom we will never know yet we know must exist, giving of themselves simply because they believe they are doing the right thing. All we can do is honor their sacrifice, say “Thank you”, and live in a way that honors that sacrifice.
The action seems to slow for context only enough to allow the reader to relax the hands from the book, but there is no wasted time as those moments are critical for content and for building suspense as well as meaning.

While his writing style is consistently excellent, there has been no rehashing or reusing plot lines, twists, turns, or surprises in any of his books, and I have read them all. Each is fresh and captivating.
Even the title remains a mystery until the end.

For artfully crafting action, humor, suspense, politics, theology, technology, humanity, and reality seamlessly into a consuming work, Dale Amidei stands apart and above.

It will not disappoint.

I want more.
