And Tay must set asidethe distrust deep within him.What Dawna and Tay cant set aside is their growingattraction. And that may just get them both killed.ExcerptChapter OneThe bomb exploded at precisely six-oh-four in the morning. Its blast rocked through Sergeant Dawna Atkinsons beat-up Fiat just as she entered the citys largest square. Ahead, despite the early hour, the block hummed with people, people who were not all running away from the old school which housed the embassy.No, a few were running toward the large building.Her grip tight on the steering wheel, Dawna shook her head.

Those civilians were either incredibly foolish or incredibly brave.Or members of a drug cartel determined to undermine the strengthening democracy here in Bolivia. Theyd already ruined the capital of La Paz for many foreign nationals and displaced ambassadors to other cities like Cochabamba.She gritted her teeth.

Tramping her foot down on the accelerator, she darted into the early morning traffic, now thick with post-explosion chaos.Smoke spewed into the smoggy morning sky in a single, ugly belch, its source a black, burning mound in front of the doors that led into the embassys enclosed courtyard. Snapping her attention back to her driving, Dawna steered the car into a narrow alley across the square from the embassy and jumped out.

No time for her locking bar, normally a must in most South American cities. With any luck, someone would steal the old rust bucket and inherit all of its mechanical woes.She threaded through the noisy crowd, her long, quick strides carrying her over the numerous cracks in the sidewalk that sliced through the park-like square.

Loud Spanish voices bounced around her as she hurried past the white monument of some long-dead dignitary on horseback. Already, the acrid smell of burning metal and ancient building materials penetrated the growing warmth of the early July morning.She pushed past an old native man, who coughed out something in Spanish. Charging through the rest of the square, she reached the area in front of the embassy.
