Suspense doesn't burn any brighter and desire doesn't run any deeper than when Suzanne Brockmann takes the helm, opens the throttle, and takes readers along for a breathless ride as she breaks the thrill barrieruagain and again. With Into the Fire, Brockmann lights the fuse on her most explosive story yet. Vinh Murphyuex-Marine and onetime operative for the elite security firm Troubleshooters Incorporateduhas been MIA ever since his wife, Angelina, was caught in a crossfire and killed during what should have been a routine bodyguard assignment. Overcome with grief, Murphy blames the neo-Nazi group known as the Freedom Network for her death. Now, years later, Freedom Network leader Tim Ebersole has been murdereduand the FBI suspects Murphy may have pulled the trigger. To prevent further bloodshed, Murphy's friends at Troubleshooters scramble to find him and convince him to surrender peacefully. Murphy himself can't be sure what he did or didn't do during the years he spent mourning and lost in an alcohol-induced fog. He does know he occasionally sought solace from Hannah Whitfield, a former police officer and the very friend who'd introduced him to his beloved late wife. But Hannah, still grappling with the deafness that resulted from an injury sustained while on duty, was fighting her own battles. For years Hannah had feelings for Murphy, and one painful night their suffering brought them together in a way neither expecteduand both regretted. Murphy is ready to rejoin the living. As always, he finds himself knocking on Hannah's door, and as always, his longtime friend welcomes him back into her home. Yet even as Murphy slowly rebuilds his splintered life, he continues to fight his growing feelings for Hannah. Then he learns of Ebersole's murder and comes to believe that the Freedom Network has targeted himuand Hannahuto avenge their leader's death to violence. Now Murphy must face the terrifying prospect of losing another woman he loves. As the Troubleshooters desperately search for him, Murphy races toward a deadly confrontation with the Freedom Network and ultimate choice: surrender his life in hopes that Hannah will be spared, or risk everything to salvage whatever future they may have together.

A unique and thrilling series . I love this series so much I don't want it to end.

So I actually procrastinated on reading this book for a long time. The premise was so dark, but I'm definitely glad I read it. Brockmann, as usual, came through with incredible characters, rich relationships, and intense action. She had me going several times with the Nash situation, and there were plenty of laughs and tears spread throughout the novel. It's exciting to watch the individuals grow throughout the series. Not only are they not perfect, but their relationships face realistic challenges. Even after the spotlight shifts away from a couple, they still come back in the series - and not just as two-dimensional scene setting or the all-knowing voice of experience. The Troubleshooters series is so great, and I really hope that Brockmann keeps it going!
