"A great work of romantic suspense"
Lieutenant Teri Howe is a Naval rescue pilot who loves what
she does but freezes whenever a man comes on to her. Stan
Wolchonok is the senior chief of the SEAL Team known as
Team Sixteen Troubleshooters Squad. Stan notices her
immediately and though he vehemently denies it to himself,
he cares for Teri a great deal. When he sees her unable to
defend herself when accosted by a former lover , he subtly
breaks up the battle of the
sexes and takes her under his wing.
He arranges, with Teri's consent, for her to be assigned to
his team for an exercise in the Azores. However their
flight is diverted when hijackers force a landing in
Kazbeckistan, holding over a hundred men, women and
children hostage. Teri surprises herself by becoming
emotionally involved with Stan and under wartime
conditions, the pair finds a love that is strong, real and
beautiful. Now, all they have to do is free the hostages
without getting killed.
Suzanne Brockmann has written one of the best books of her
career, a novel that has action, adventure, intrigue and
most of all, romance. It is the story of two lonely people
who come together in the middle of a war zone and out of
the ugliness comes something almost too beautiful to
behold. This is a tale of finding the strength and courage
to fight when common sense says flee. OVER THE EDGE takes
the audience to the edge and back again.
