Publisher's Summary

Samantha Reid, Deputy Director of The White House Office of Homeland Security deals with international challenges and political intrigue at the highest levels in the audio version of this thriller by best-selling author Karna Small Bodman. Read by famed narrator Basil Sands, the story unfolds from the explosion of a natural gas pipeline in America’s heartland. Sensing impending disaster, Samantha tries to convince reluctant officials to take action, but they're focused on several other national security threats. When more explosions threaten not only America’s energy supplies, but many lives in the process, Samantha teams up with Tripp Adams, the Vice President of GeoGlobal Oil & Gas, owner of the pipeline, to investigate the mystery of continuing sabotage. They then must race to stop a team of foreign agents before this shadowy group can carry out their final deadly scheme.

Thoroughly enjoyed listening

It was great, if a little far fetched. Once the characters had been established I really did want to get to the end as soon as possible.
