No stranger to balancing an intensely demanding work schedule with the stresses of keeping her family together, AJ Palladino now faces another challenge: she is leaving her young son home with her ailing parents so that she can travel to the site of a new case involving a nuclear power plant in peril. And it will take all her skills to keep her cool while the action and tension build to a fever pitch.

Colleton River, a new, one-of-a-kind nuclear facility designed to create medical isotopes with the potential to save millions of lives, has recently been plagued by a series of unexplained mishaps. The accidents have caused the locals to protest the plant, drawing the attention of an anti-nuclear protest group as well as several home-grown terrorists who sense an opportunity to sow fear and chaos. The plantÕs owner, Owen Grandel, has traveled from South Carolina to West Virginia to personally ask AJ for help. AJ knows sheÕs going to have her hands full investigating the accidents and calming the situation at the plant. What she doesnÕt foresee is her simple business trip turning into disaster, with her family coming apart at the seams in her absenceÑand her young son disappearing. While AJ tries to find her missing child, she also discovers what caused the Òaccidents.Ó Soon the plant begins hurtling towards nuclear catastrophe, with AJ stranded at ground zero. But can she save her son, herself, and the communityÑand prevent a nuclear meltdown before itÕs too late?

They hide in the shadows to protect our country…can they protect their hearts?

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author CJ Lyons comes the long awaited conclusion of her Shadow Ops trilogy!

EDGE OF SHADOWS (Shadow Ops Book #3):
The Special Threats Response Team hunts terrorists out of the reach of conventional law enforcement.

Their leader, Rose Prospero has already faced her own worst fear: five years ago she was captured and tortured when the CIA abandoned her behind enemy lines. Since then, she’s focused her energies on protecting her Team and her country from monsters like the man who captured her. The Team and the job come first, last, always for Rose, leaving no room for love.

Former Delta, Billy “Edge” Price is Rose’s second-in-command and her best friend. Suave, skilled, and a smooth operator, Billy loves his job—and his boss. He can’t have both, so he’s settled for using his position to stay close to Rose.

As they face enemies from without and within, on the run from anyone who could help them, Rose and Billy learn each other’s deepest secrets, face their greatest fears, and sacrifice everything for Team, Country…and Love.
