Free falling into a war zone, Lieutenant Colonel Alexandra “The Fey” Hargreaves learns that her former intern, Sergeant Larry Flagg, and his Special Forces team have failed to report. One missing team, one personal worry, magnifies as the shocking disappearance of nearly two hundred active Special Operations soldiers becomes reality. When Alex uncovers a hidden threat to national security, she and her Fey Team are caught in a web spun by a computer genius.
Lean on Me is a journey across the globe; atop the canyons of Paktika Province and under the North Dakota plain, south for a day on Harkers Island and south again in the Indian Ocean as Alex and the Fey Team rescue hostages, outsmart an old enemy, and discover a trail that leads from the murder of the Fey Special Forces Team to the destruction of the world.
The fourth installment in the Alex the Fey thriller series, Lean on Me, delivers the members of the Fey Team in action like never before as Alex Hargreaves takes on the gut-wrenching mantle of command and comes to terms with her own first rule of leadership: “Wherever you are, it is your friends who make your world.”

The Fey Stories are beyond fantastic.....constant page turner...
I discovered the Fey, by accident and I'm so drawn into the stories I read them frequently, reading them over and over. I was worried that another novel would not be made, but alas, Claudia made my fears devolve. I can't find another book that I return to keep my interest.
I personally read this book three times along with the other three and avidly await the fifth book, IN THE GREY coming out in mid-March 2013. Yes, no woman has ever been a real US Army Green Beret in SF etc. but this is fiction people. This author writes a compelling and ever entrancing story line that keeps you salivating for more. Yes, oh I really have read each book three times and am reading them a forth before the fifth comes out!
Maybe some critics feel her details are incorrect but remember this is fiction. Ms, Hall is a gifted author who I would love to meet someday because she's real. I subscribe to her email letters and follow her progress almost daily. Please read these books in the spirit they are written, as fiction. The characters in my opinion are believable, and her details of the struggles injured soldiers suffer are not fiction. Ms. Hall challenges us to realize the damages that combat has on all of our military personnel on active and reserve duty. Our military is preserving our American Freedom as our Constitution mandates and have suffered severely.
Loss of body parts, infections that can and do kill are presented in a way through these stories that anyone can relate to. We send our young people off to fight and forget them when they come home with all the injuries and mental anguish they suffer. Ms. Hall writes fiction but she also writes a compelling series that challenges the American people to stand up for our military personnel, EVERY SINGLE ONE, and their families.
One thing that might seem outrageous to some is the team living together in one household. Well, duh, how many of us have to live with our families due to our own disabilities, financial woes, childcare needs and parents with age related issues we care for. The team living together allows for quick response to do the very important rescues that make the story flow.
Ms. Hall also provides the encouragement and strength of helping one another through our struggles in life. She addresses marital issues, alcoholism, PTSD, amputation, massive infections that zap the life of people, domestic violence, and her characters grow STRONG and overcome their issues. They do not loose them, they deal everyday with them and that makes this authors fictional series of "Alex the Fey" come alive on paper.
I pray this review is allowed because Claudia Hall Christian is a shining star in the fiction world. You will be surprised!!!!!
