This is the second book in the CAPITAL INTRIGUE series but it can be read as a stand alone. Nonetheless, its characters have been introduced in the previous book END GAME.
This is my kind of suspense book full of the inner workings of all the government agencies.
Layla Karam is an analyst but the CIA wants her expertise in the field. She is quite happy with a desk job, thank you. After a team effort in Honduras with the DEA, things go terribly wrong. To add to the drama, her old love steps into the picture. In fact there are three romantic relationships featured in this story, which doesn’t detract from the plot, it just makes it more interesting.
Ms. Dylan knows her stuff and lets us peek into a world normally unexposed. What is interesting is that the author based her heroine, Layla, partially on herself, although she went into corporate law rather than saying yes to the CIA.
A quick read with lots of action, intrigue, as well as a solid faith is portrayed. And for me, a surprise ending. Cannot wait for Power Play coming June 2021.

At the same time, the CIA opens an internal investigation against her.

Hunter McCoy for help finding out who might want to ruin her career.
Layla and Hunter soon discover that a mole inside the DEA has sold out the team’s identity to the cartel. She needs to clear her name with the
Agency in order to protect herself and her teammates from cartel
retaliation. With threats on all sides, Layla must put her trust in
Hunter–the man who broke her heart–and hope they both come out of it
For those who are content sensitive: this book contains non-graphic scenes and descriptions of physical and sexual assault.
