Matthew Knight is a 30 year-old undercover FBI agent. He's snatched from his birthday party with his two best friends to go on a new assignment. Unfortunately, this assignment has him headed to Salt Lake City, the city where his mom was murdered when he was only 8 years-old. Matt knows that this is going to bring some ghosts back for him, and he doesn't really want to face them. Things get even worse when he realizes that his boss on this mission is the man who not only trained him as an agent, but also his Mormon Bishop. Having not really realized that he was still even a Mormon, things get interesting really fast. Matt will be expected to attend his singles ward and get to know everyone to determine who could be a terrorist trying to commit a huge biological warfare act against the people of Salt Lake City. His Bishop advises dating as a way to get to know the women, but Matt has no desire to date anyone other than the girl he loves, Becca, who also happens to be married to his best friend. Matt quickly finds some suspects that he needs to check out, but when those lead to an apparent dead end, and he's nearly killed in a hit and run, Matt knows that he needs to find the terrorists and fast. But will his feelings for Hope Winslow get in the way of figuring out the terrorist's target?
I really enjoyed reading this book! Matt is a likable character, I really enjoyed seeing things through his eyes. I really loved his perception of Hope, how she just glowed and I loved when he realized why and how that helps his testimony later on in the story. There were parts of this book that made me laugh out loud, they were just funny. There are also plenty of tense moments when your not sure just what's going to happen to the characters. I also liked the way he was able to move past the killing of his mother. I hope that Frank Holdaway writes more books soon!
I was able to borrow this one from my local library.
