When FBI agent Jack Shannon arrives in Corpus Christi, Texas, he is focused on one thing: find the man who has been selling encrypted government secrets to the Chinese through online birding chat rooms. But when a senator is shot during a hunting trip and the woman he was with is abducted, Jack agrees to join the search–especially when he discovers that the kidnapping victim is Aubrey Grayson, a woman he was once in love with.
As the search continues, it becomes clear the senator may not have been the intended victim–and Aubrey may be connected to the other case Jack is supposed to be working on. Can Jack untangle the knots before it’s too late? And when he learns the truth, will it be too painful to get past?
Join the hunt for the truth–and a traitor–in this tension-laden story of secrets, betrayal, and second chances.
I read three of Lisa Harris’ novels back to back.
A lot of suspenseful, fun, intriguing, and sometimes sweet books in a few days. The Traitor’s Pawn has had me on the edge of my seat to read since I first heard about it a while ago, and that cover! Wow! So perfect for the story with the model, the background, and the colors.
I could already tell that there was a red herring as I started the book and the suspense came up, but I wasn’t completely sure where it was coming from … I almost expected it to be different than it did end and was glad it hadn’t gone the way I expected though it was not the happiest ending suspense wise. I thought the romance side was sweet and it had a good ending.
Content wise this was a pretty good suspense, though I thought it was a bit violent for me at times but I don’t love the violence often found in suspense. An interesting read that will leave you wanting more from the author.
I’m struggling to remember the Christian content since I read it with Lisa Harris’ other books but from what I know was part of The Traitor’s Pawn it was all right.
