They met in a war-torn city on the other side of the world and shared an anonymous night of passion. They didn't intend to meet again. Nor did they think they'd be reunited by sinister secrets...
Five years later, FBI Agent Savannah Kane is headed to a small town in Georgia for the funeral of her best friend's husband. Going home is fraught with complications, but Savannah never imagined one of those would be Ryker Stone, the stranger she'd shared an unforgettable night with.
Haunted by an ambush that took the lives of two men in his unit, Ryker now copes by living a solitary civilian life. Attending the funeral of yet another soldier, this one lost to a senseless accident, he is shocked to run into the beautiful stranger he has never forgotten.
When another man in Ryker's former unit dies under suspicious circumstances, it’s clear that someone is targeting his team. He's determined to get to the truth; Savannah is just as determined to get answers for her friend. Neither wants to work with the other, and as they struggle with trust and attraction, the truth grows murkier...and more dangerous. Will finding answers reveal secrets neither one of them is ready to know?

Wow, amazing, heart stopping, phenomenal novel. Freethy never disappoints. This is a phenomenal story that grabs you at page one and doesn’t let you go. It is an up all night, can’t put it down novel.
Barbara Freethy never fails to deliver twists and turns from page 1 of her books, and this one doesn't fail in that regard. When Ryker (a former Army Ranger) shows up to a former team member's funeral he is in for a shock. While in the army he had had a one-night stand, and always regretted not knowing her name and has always thought about her. Enter Savannah, who had decided to enter the FBI. Savannah is the best friend of the wife of Ryker's friend. Grab your seat as you follow the adventures of Ryker and Savannah that deliver so many surprises along the way, with an even more surprising ending. Highly recommend.
The Perfect Balance of Action, Intrigue, and Romance
Critical Doubt is a masterful story that delivers the perfect balance of action, intrigue, and romance. I enjoyed the story of Savannah and Ryker with their wonderful chemistry. The action started at the beginning of the book and didn’t stop until the end. It had many unexpected twists and turns. I really like having the previous team members being involved in the current storyline. This is another extremely captivating and suspenseful book that I highly recommend. I hope there are many more books like this coming from Barbara Freethy in the future.
