I had never read a book in the Black Knights Inc series before this one, which is the fourth book in the series. I got an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher Sourcebooks and decided it looked interesting. And after reading it, I think I may go read the others in the series when I have a chance. You don’t need to have read the others to enjoy this one. This book is about Richard “Rock” Babineaux, who is on the run after being labeled a rogue operative. His co-worker Vanessa Cordero tracks him down in the jungles of Costa Rico. While there, they are attacked by the CIA who is trying to catch, or kill, Rock. Vanessa and Rock grow closer and make their way back to the Black Knights who will work to clear Rock’s name. The attraction between Rock and Vanessa is there, but Rock has been hurt in the past and refuses to admit his feelings for Vanessa. This is a fast-paced, action-packed novel with a group of characters that I am interested in getting to know better in Walker’s other books.
