The Traitor's Pawn by Lisa Harris

About the Book
When FBI agent Jack Shannon arrives in Corpus Christi, Texas, he is focused on one thing: find the man who has been selling encrypted government secrets to the Chinese through online birding chat rooms. But when a senator is shot during a hunting trip and the woman he was with is abducted, Jack agrees to join the search--especially when he discovers that the kidnapping victim is Aubrey Grayson, a woman he was once in love with.
As the search continues, it becomes clear the senator may not have been the intended victim--and Aubrey may be connected to the other case Jack is supposed to be working on. Can Jack untangle the knots before it's too late? And when he learns the truth, will it be too painful to get past?
Join the hunt for the truth--and a traitor--in this tension-laden story of secrets, betrayal, and second chances.

My Thoughts
Lisa Harris has quickly earned a name for herself in the Christian romantic suspense world and I have enjoyed many of the novels she has written.
This story starts off with what you think is a serene moment but things quickly take off and leave you trying to piece together the pieces of what is happening. There are a lot of moving parts in this story but the author brings them all together in the end.
We spent a lot of time in the characters’ heads, whether it was thinking about their past or just mentally going over the current circumstances. Personally I would have preferred more in the moment showing rather than all the telling.
The Jack and Aubrey both had a passion for justice and they showed that in the way they chased after every clue in their case. The fact that they had been friends since childhood allowed them to work well together despite having not seen each other for years. There wasn’t a lot of romance, more of a reflecting on past feelings and seeing if they had changed but it worked for the story.
This book wasn’t quite the action-packed suspense I was hoping for but I’m sure other lovers of this genre will find much to enjoy.
