Treason, torture and temptation haunt the GhostWalkers in their most dangerous adventure yet, as Christine Feehan's #1 New York Times bestselling series hits an explosive new high.

Rescuing an industrial spy from the hands of a criminal mastermind is a suicide mission for the GhostWalkers. And there's no one more up to the task than Gino Mazza. He's the perfect killing machine—a man driven by demons so dark and destructive that his blighted soul has given up trying to find solace. But his laser-sharp focus on his target has transformed into something nearing desire.

A treasonous senator dangled top secret GhostWalker data in front of a Chinese crime lord, and he bit. Zara Hightower, one of the world's leading experts on artificial intelligence, was sent in to psychically wipe the crime lord's computer network. She succeeded, but at a huge cost. Now she's the captive of a man who has descended into paranoid madness. Torture and death await her...

But GhostWalkers never leave one of their own in enemy territory. And it's up to Gino to save Zara, or kill her if it turns out she's led them into a trap. Either way, heaven or hell won't stop him...

Zara is on a mission to protect the other Ghostwalkers.  But when she is only partially successful will it lead to her death?

Covert Game is the latest installment in Christine Feehan’s Ghostwalker series.  Zara doesn’t believe she is much of a ghostwalker but she will do whatever is necessary to protect them.  Gino embraced the darkness and loved the enhancements.  But is he too dark for a happily ever after?  Gino finds himself longing for a partner and something about Zara calls to him but can she be trusted?  I loved finding out.  I also enjoyed seeing Gino and Zara find their way.  Both Gino and Zara were a bit of a throwback, but their needs meshed perfectly.  Having space and time to see how well would be their issue.  I loved that Ms. Feehan allowed Gino to see Zara and her needs.  They were different but fit what he wanted to have in a relationship.  I loved that Ms. Feehan showed us Zara’s strength even as her needs dictated leaning on her man.  I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Zara come into her own as a woman as one half of a couple.  This story was well written and enjoyable.  The characters are vibrant, funny and real.  This story by Ms. Feehan is a great addition to this series and I can’t wait to see where she will take us next.
