The Cost of Honor

Sourcebooks. (Black Ops Confidential, Bk. 3). Nov. 2019. 352p. ISBN 9781492674221. pap. $7.99; ebk. ISBN 9781492662457. ROMANTIC SUSPENSE
Tony Parish is a member of a vigilante family who seeks to right the injustices of the world. A wanted man, he fakes his own death after a failed attempt to protect one of his adoptive sisters. On the island of Dominica, Tony is reborn as Lazarus and nearly loses his life for real. Local Honor Silva saves Lazarus from drowning and quickly finds herself enthralled with the handsome American…and in serious danger. Honor’s inner conflict about her mother’s death provides depth to her character. However, the instant connection between Tony and Honor is hard to buy. For an ex-operative on the run, he trusts Honor very quickly and falls for her just as fast. This relationship could have used more of a slow burn to have a more effective payoff.
VERDICT Fans may enjoy this fast-paced latest entry in the “Black Ops Confidential” series (after The Price of Grace). Readers who are sensitive to mentions of sex trafficking, child abuse, and child sexual assault might want to look elsewhere.
