Dayton “Day” Ingram is recovering from an injury suffered in Mexico—and from his failed relationship with fellow Scorpion agent, Knight. While researching an old government document, Day realizes he might be holding the key to finding an artistic masterpiece lost since WWII.
But the Russians are looking for it too, and have a team in place in Eastern Europe hunting it down. Day and Knight are brought back together when they are charged with getting to the painting first.
Knight wants to leave Mexico and everything that happened there behind, and return to the life he had—except it wasn’t much of a life. When he’s partnered up with Day, keeping his distance proves to be challenging. But Day is as stubborn as Knight and isn’t willing to let him walk away.
Their assignment leads them through Germany and Austria with agents hot on their tail—agents willing to do whatever it takes to get to the masterpiece first. If Day and Knight can live long enough to find the painting, they might also discover something even more precious—each other.
These two agents seem to attract every possible dangerous senerio possible. What starts out as a game of find that treasure turns dangerous very quickly for the two of these men. And the adventures they have to take in order to unravel the mystery as to where their treasure is seems to be never ending. From the moment they receive the assignment it is as if they are only one step ahead of the bad guys and sometimes only a half a step ahead which makes for an extremely dangerous situation that could explode at any given second.
Knight has also pulled away from Day in the beginning of this book not ready to move on from the past. I think a lot of his problem is that he is scared that since his family was murdered and he barely made it through that, that if he gets too close to Day and he allows himself to fall in love with him that if something happens to Day then Knight may not be able to recover from it. I also think Day being shot in book 1 is what set these wheels in motion. I think him seeing Day being shot scared him at how close he came to losing him and it made him shut down.
Day is not giving up on Knoght though. I believe that Day is worried about being played by Knight because Knight keeps opening up on to shut him out again. It is very much a game of cat and mouse where Knights emotions are concerned. And I think that Day knows if the two ever do commit to being together that they will be an unstoppable team in a relationship and as partners on the job both. The thing is, will he ever be able to make Knight see it that way also.
This book is very much like book 2 as far as never knowing what is coming these two men’s way where danger in concerned. They do not know who to trust because there is a mole in the organization that is leaking all their Intel. Also this book holds a huge mystery that is not unraveled until the end. Also this book gives more information on what happened the night that Knights family was murdered. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series to see if that mystery will finally be solved and if Knight and Day will finally end up on the same page for once.
Another great book by Dirk.
