No Place to Hide by Lynette Eason

About the book: She'll defend her friend until the bitter end--but is she in over her head?

It's not every day you see your childhood friend and onetime crush on national news. Jackie Sellers just wishes it were under different circumstances. She can't believe that Ian Lockwood is wanted in connection with a terrorist plot, and she's determined to find him and help him clear his name. Unfortunately, she's not the only one looking for him. The FBI wants him captured. The bad guys want him dead. Ian just wants to stay alive long enough to prove his innocence and prevent a catastrophe.

Lynette Eason delivers nonstop action as Jackie and Ian travel a dangerous road--one that may lead straight to destruction.

My thoughts: In No Place to Hide there is intense action with the plot involving potential biological terrorism bringing riveting suspense and tension to the story and to the individual characters. There is the criminal aspect where motives get blurred in the actions of those involved.

The two protagonists, Ian and Jackie, are upstaged a bit by the dog, Gus. Of course, that is not really true, but he is a lovable doggie woven into the pages of this suspense tale. While Ian and Jackie are friends from their past lives, their friendship bonds are cemented as they try to hide from their pursuers. It is hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys as this story unfolds because both the good and bad guys are chasing Ian and Jackie.

Desperate to escape and untangle the mess that had enveloped Ian, he and Jackie seek the help of a group of professionals with whom Jackie has worked. They pave the way for their undetected pursuit of truth.

As the story reaches the end, the conclusion is totally unexpected. The unsuspected culprit and the reason for the terrorist act totally unexpected.

Lynette Eason has again produced a good clean tale of suspension. There is faith and romance lightly interspersed into the mix. This is a good example of entertaining Christian fiction that you can recommend as can I.
