Three young American women are on a Caribbean vacation. What happens when a tough ex-Marine colonel turned CIA agent is sent to the island to keep tabs on the women? His backup is a female covert operative desperate to be redeemed from a killer past. She has a green light to do "whatever it takes" to see that a data disc with secrets vital to national security does not fall into the wrong hands.
Spies from several nations suspect that the women have the disc. The women are unaware of its existence. A steamy attraction flares between a handsome stranger and one of them, and she disappears. Chaos reigns when the killer operative begins feeling a spiritual connection to the women stronger than her connection to her CIA mission. Edge of your seat thrills take hold as the action moves stateside. The Melting Points is written in the same style as the author's award-winning Vietnam War novel, Coming Home (Random House), upon which the Jane Fonda Academy Award-winning film of the same name was loosely based.
The Melting Points is a beautifully written novel about gender and history, religion and spirituality, love and the search for identity. It is a carefully plotted tale of how we shape our reality and how our reality shapes us.
In The Melting Points danger gets in your mind and toys with it until the explosive last page.
