Desperate Play is a typical Barbara Freethy romantic suspense novel. From the opening scene, it grabs your attention & doesn't let go. The plot twists & turns with surprises at every turn. Every time I thought I knew who did it, another suspect came up. The Off the Grid series follows a group of FBI agents that bonded in training. Each book is self contained with appearances from some of the others. There is a secondary ongoing thread about someone in the FBI screwing with their careers but it is an underlying thread tying the stories together. This book follows Wyatt, an undercover agent & Avery, an astrophysicist as they race to discover who is behind acts of espionage & theft & her friend Noelle's murder. Who can they trust? Who is trying to kill Avery?
