|Summary, etc.:||"Kay Hamilton, the beautiful, fearless, and audacious DEA agent who went rogue in Rosarito Beach, has paid the price for her subversive behavior. As Viking Bay begins, Kay has been fired by the DEA and needs a job to support herself and her teenage daughter. Kay moves to Washington D.C. and connects with the Callahan Group, a shadowy quasi-governmental agency with an enigmatic agenda. For her first mission, Kay is told only a few facts: that the U.S. government wants Sahid Khan, a provincial Afghan governor, to become the nation's next president, and that Khan's daughter Ara--a Western-educated former party girl--is her father's key political advisor. Kay Hamilton is the perfect undercover operative to learn Ara's secrets and sway her thinking in line with America's interests. But when things go horribly wrong at a clandestine meeting in Afghanistan, Kay emerges at the center of an international plot that makes her question those she loves, those she works for, and her own faith in justice" --|

The guy hero is back. Cynical. Skeptical. He can beat you up, or draw faster when he can't. Drink you under the table, too. When he meets members of the opposite sex, he muses on their possibilities as bed partners. But in Lawson's fine action thriller, there's one difference: "he" is a woman. Kay Hamilton is an exâDEA agent, canned for killing a few "slimewads," never mind due process. Here she's hired by a mysterious Washington outfit that may be working for the president. Or not. Her job is to infiltrate an Afghan family with access to valuable metals and influence them toward Washington. It goes murderously, violently bad, and Kay suspects her elite crowd contains a traitor. The traitor is out to kill her, which leads to a couple of exciting fight scenes. Kay is a great character: smart, tough, and uncompromising. Once she discovers the traitor, she plots an elaborate, humiliating punishment. All in all, this makes for much more compelling reading than if she had been a "he." Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
