From unrelenting action to intense emotion, from high-stakes drama to breakneck pacing, New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann is a novelist who does it all. Now after her blockbuster hardcover debut, Gone Too Far, Brockmann delivers an exciting new thriller about men and women operating where agents of the U.S. government cannot, where America’s most ruthless enemies thrive–and where every step you take just might be your last….

Jimmy Nash has already lived two lives–and he can’t talk about either of them. Formerly an operative of a top secret government agency, he has found a new job with a shadowy company called Troubleshooters, Incorporated. Created by a former Navy SEAL, Troubleshooters, Inc. helps anyone in desperate need–which provides a perfect cover for its other, more perilous objective: covert special operations.

Now Nash and a quickly assembled team of expert operators have come to the earthquake-ravaged country of Kazbekistan in the guise of relief workers. There, amid the dust and death, in a land of blood red sunsets and ancient blood feuds, they must track down a missing laptop computer that may hold secrets vital to national security.

To get it done, Nash does what he does best: break every rule in the book and manipulate those who can help him get what he needs. But this time, Nash may have met his match in Tess Bailey, a Troubleshooters operative with all the right instincts–and zero field experience. The deep attraction between them is immediate… and potentially volatile, with risk at every turn.

Now these two professionals must play out their dangerous games in the world’s most dangerous place– isolated from their own government, cutting deals with people they can’t trust, and guarding forbidden passions that threaten to compromise their crucial mission.

A full-throttle adventure teamed with heated emotion, Flashpoint proves that Suzanne Brockmann can spin suspense unlike any other author working today.


Romantic Times BookClub Magazine gives FLASHPOINT four and a half stars and a Top Pick! Jill M. Smith says: “Powerhouse author Brockmann opens up a new chapter in the exploits of SEAL Team 16. Creating Troubleshooters, Incorporated opens the door to whole new vistas for her to explore.”

Tanzey Cutter, who reviews for the Old Book Barn Gazette and www.TheBestReviews.com, writes: “Brockmann has done it again! She’s written an intensely emotional, gut-gripping novel with tons of international intrigue ripped from today’s headlines. The fact that something like this could be happening right now makes it even more daring, dramatic and scary. Accolades for Brockmann’s handling of this type of suspense/thriller will continue to accumulate with Flashpoint, and she deserves them!”
