Too Far Gone is part of a series about Navy SEALs, and the hero of this book, Sean Harlan, is portrayed

When Ellie needs his help to try to search for the kids, though, he is eager to assist.

In this well-paced book with plenty of action (although less direct SEAL action than I expected),
the romance is believable, the plot credible most of the time, and the side-plot with an FBI agent and a rich young woman
