Lights Out is truly a page-turner as CIA agent Brynn Taylor is assigned to work with the SNAP team to locate a missing spy from her new program designed to combat terrorism. Neither she nor ex-boyfriend Jack Hudson are thrilled to find themselves working closely together on the assignment but both are professionals and the future of the U.S. is at stake.

The exciting plot seemed to move along at warp speed with greater danger around every corner. Each clue took the team deeper into a sinister plot against the country through its power grid that could possibly lead to world-wide disaster. Spies, murders, kidnappings, poison, and explosions are just a taste of what Natalie Walters has in store for her readers. The story is so realistic that it left me wondering how close our nation could be to such a scenario and if there is a dedicated team similar to SNAP that will work night and day to stop it.

Lights Out is an exciting suspense filled tale that should delight readers who enjoy intense suspense novels. Natalie Walters is an expert when it comes to writing them.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.


CIA analyst Brynn Taylor developed a new program to combat terrorism, and she invited members of foreign intelligence agencies to America to foster cooperation between countries. Now one of them, Egyptian spy Remon Riad, is missing.

Jack Hudson has been working for the Strategic Neutralization and Protection Agency for almost nine years and takes the lead in hunting down the missing spy. But he isn’t at all pleased to find out Brynn is involved. It’s hard to trust a woman who’s already betrayed you.

Every lead they follow draws them dangerously deeper into an international plot. Kidnapping, murder, explosions, poisoning–the terrorists will do anything to accomplish their goal of causing a digital blackout that will blind a strategic US military communications center and throw the world into chaos.

Can Brynn surrender control to a man who doesn’t trust her? And can Jack ever get over what she did to him? The fate of the world–and their hearts–hangs in the balance.
