Now You See Her by Merline Lovelace (Berkley)
Lt. Samantha Spade, USAF is in charge of a small team of civilians and one career sergeant responsible for evaluating inventions for desert warfare. She is a sarcastic and lovable lady who has a tendency to act and then think. In this second episode, she is evaluating goggles that allow you to see around buildings. Samantha takes them out for an unauthorized trail run and becomes involved in a shoot-out. How does she explain her involvement to her boss? Once again she is caught up in a criminal investigation and in trouble with the good guys and the bad guys. Sometimes it is difficult to tell the difference. The story is fast paced and a very quick read with a lot of twists and turns. Her “love” interest, Border Patrol agent Jeff “Mitch” Mitchell, becomes involved also. As I said in my review of the first book, I would like to see the members of her research team more involved. Their characters are very interesting and could take this series a long way.
