Unknown Threat (Defend and Protect, #1) by Lynn H. Blackburn

Unknown Threat (Defend and Protect, #1)ABOUT THE BOOK

US Secret Service Special Agent Luke Powell is lucky to be alive. Three of his fellow agents have died in unusual circumstances in the past ten weeks. Luke is devastated by the loss of his friends and colleagues, and his inability to locate the killer feels like a personal failure. He's an expert at shielding others, but now the protectors are in need of protection.

FBI Special Agent Faith Malone is driven to succeed and confident in her ability to solve every case she's assigned. She's been put in charge of the investigation into the unprecedented attacks, and with Luke's life in danger, the stakes have never been higher. But it's hard to know how to fight back when you don't know who the enemy is.

As more agents are targeted, Luke and Faith will have to work together to bring a killer to justice and prevent any more names from joining their fallen brothers and sisters on the Secret Service Wall of Honor.


This book starts out with a bang, and I mean that literally. Two Secret Service agents are shot, and then almost killed, when both of their cars are rigged to explode. From then on, it's a race to find who targeted Luke Powell and his co-worker, Zane Thacker, and who killed three of their fellow agents. An intense investigation begins, with FBI agents joining the search, and Luke finds himself working along side of Faith Malone, the lead FBI agent in the case. They've known each other before, but will their working together create another explosive situation?

I had the pleasure of reading all three of the books in the Dive Team Investigations series, and they made me a forever fan of Lynn H. Blackburn. This author shares excitement, suspense, and strong faith messages in her books, and Unknown Threat is certainly no different. Blackburn has a knack for creating unique characters who are both fragile and strong, and she always gives them a chance to grow emotionally and spiritually. She also creates plots that leave you wondering "just how did that happen?" I was kept guessing until the end and I look forward to seeing what's in store for the other characters in this new Defend and Protect series.

Unknown Threat
is a fantastic read and I recommend it to all who enjoy enjoy heart-racing and page-turning Christian romantic suspense.
