“We all have our own secrets to bear, our demons in the past”……
Beneath the Surface is the third book in the Gray Ghosts series by Amy McKinley. It is a fantastic, adrenaline fueled, and action packed romantic suspense. It has a second-chances aspect to the story- with drama, violence, bloody battle scenes, secrets, lies, promises, twists, special forces, espionage, Guerrilla’s, intrigue, danger, gripping situations, and plenty of emotion. The characters are superb, and OMG!- Ms. McKinley certainly puts them through the wringer. I was on tenterhook’s, holding my breath, catapulted from one intense moment right into the next- all the while trying to figure out what would happen next. But, as expected, Ms. McKinley kept me guessing the whole way through.
The story is set against the backdrop of Washington DC, and the deadly environment of the Colombian jungle. The story swallowed me up (in a great way), as I became totally immersed in all the espionage, action, thrills and danger. There was nowhere to turn, the story has me firmly in its grip, and I loved it. I adored “Eye of the Storm” (Book #2) and it was easily my favourite of the series, until this book came along- and now I am having a hard time choosing which one I love more. I guess because this story is set in the same time frame, and the storyline runs parallel with Book #2 (Chris and Mari’s story) is why I love it so much. It has the same feel and intensity, but with its own powerful identity. This could be read as a standalone, but I recommend reading the rest of the series to get all the backstories, character information, and other pertinent details. As well as the other books being fantastic stories in their own rights! You can’t go wrong with Ms. McKinley at the wheel!
Can’t wait to see what she does next!!!!
Thank you, Ms. McKinley!
