From Edgar Award Winning Author Dana Stabenow (Fire And Ice, A Taint In The Blood, The Singing Of The Dead, A Cold Blooded Business, A Fine and Bitter Snow) comes an international political thriller in Blindfold Game. Stabenow crafts a tight, page-turning joyride of a thriller in which Hugh Rincon - a Langley-based CIA agent - and his wife, Sara Lange (executive officer aboard the U.S. Coastguard cutter Sojourner Truth) fight against ruthless and well-funded terrorists. The opening is as hot as a firecracker; Stabenow opens with a bang in Pattaya Beach, Thailand:

Much later when the glass had stopped flying and the screams of pain had died to moans and whimpers and the hoarse rattles of death, when the bodies had been taken to the morgue and the injured taken to the hospitals, when the television cameras had gone and workers had begun to clear the rubble and business along Central Street began to return to a shaken sort of normal, very few people remembered the two men who had been standing on the corner of Soi Cowboy when the bomb went off. They were definitely Asian, or so said a vigorous, middle-aged woman who owned a pornographic comic book store near by.
Hugh soon discovers a terrorist plot to drop a dirty bomb in an Alaskan city. The threat isn’t taken seriously by his agency, and Hugh realizes he will be forced to take matters into his own hands. Blindfold Game’s adventure globe-hops from Thailand to Korea, from Russia to Hong Kong, building in crescendo to an enthralling naval battle off the Alaskan coastline. Stabenow’s descriptions are as vivid and authentic as in her previous novels. At just a hair shy of three hundred pages, the pace is fast and tight – the way a thriller should be. Overall, Blindfold Game is an exciting, fulfilling thriller sure to be a one-sitting read.
