My Take: Honestly, this is just a fun, easy read. When I say easy, I mean I skipped over the technical stuff. There is a nuclear weapon of sorts in the Afghan mountains. Apparently, Jonathon and Emma Ransom have already made their debut in two other books. Also apparently, there are rules of betrayal. They aren't very nice and I wouldn't suggest using them.
The book begins with a group of mountain climbers who witness an airplane crash. It is also apparent that one of the climbers has ulterior motives for getting to the top. End scene.
Emma and Jonathon are not together. Although they are still married, Jonathon seems to have this altruistic streak in him. He's a doctor and wants to help the citizens in war-torn Middle Eastern countries. This gets him kidnapped and then the trouble really starts. Jonathon is your typical NGB. (Nice Guy But...) The qualifier is that Jonathon is far too gullible. Fortunately, he does have some pretty good instincts, as proven in previous novels. Perhaps he can be used as an agent?
Meanwhile, Emma gets herself into some trouble. Emma happens to have a history of working as a double agent for both the United States and Russia. It's a little unclear who her boss is at this point. It doesn't really matter because she's in dire circumstances, too.
The story is fast paced, entertaining, and contains some really interesting twists.
