At one time not that many years back, Margaret Truman was the author to read. She wrote of what she knew and embellished her stories with things she learned as the daughter of a President of the United States. I'm sure Harry was very proud of her work in the literary field, as well as being a correspondent for a well-known newspaper in the D.C. area.

Readers meet Ross Lizenby and Christine Saksis who are assigned to the case of an agent being shot and killed at the FBI shooting range! He had been propped behind a target and left there. They both feel that the Agency is hiding the answers they need. The question is why? Did this man know something the FBI did not want divulged? Would someone in the Agency go so far as to murder him to be sure their secret was kept?

As their investigation continues, a romantic attachment is forged between the two. Which, of course, is not sanctioned by the FBI. Saksis stumbles on some very incriminating evidence and must wrestle with whether her loyalties lie with the FBI or with the truth!

The reader should keep in mind that this book was first published in 1985. No cell phones or computers or wireless anything. But it is still good reading.
