In Trap and Trace, Navy Trent is your average everyday person. She works in the technology field, spends time with her friends, and has been planning to go on her dream vacation, a safari in Africa, with her closest friends Sara and Moss. There is no reason for her to be targeted for a kidnapping but for some reason her and her friends were kidnapped by a terrorist organization.
Jackson Fletcher has been a CIA spy for a long time now. His family has no idea what he does for a living and he has no friends outside his fellow CIA operatives Erin and Byron. Both Jackson and Byron know that something does not add up with the latest mission that Erin has been involved in but they just can’t seem to convince Erin that she needs to back out of this operation.
Operation Critical Mass was targeting a terrorist ring that was supposedly capturing loved ones of public figures and holding them for ransom. Erin was to pose as a niece to a Senator and allow herself and two other operatives posing as her friends to be captured so that they could find out from the inside who was running the terrorist ring. Both Jackson and Byron know that there are easier ways to obtain the information that their bosses are seeking, so they know something is up with this operation. Something that is no good.
Before the operation is even up and running, it is Navy and her friends that are kidnapped. Navy is mistaken for the Senator’s niece and they are taken and held for ransom. Agent Fletcher happens to be in the area where Navy and her friends were being held. When their location is finally ferreted out, he heads out there to see what he can do to save them. Unfortunately, before he arrives it is learned that Navy is not the person the kidnappers thought she was. Once that situation goes down it is up to Navy’s ingenuity and quick thinking to save herself and her friends.
As Navy and her friends were making their getaway they ran into Jackson and together they fled the house of horrors. What Navy thought was finally the end of her ordeal was actually only the start to a far more serious situation. Someone is convinced that Navy knows more than she should and her life is now at stake. In order to keep herself and her friends safe, Navy has to use all her talents as well as learn a few in order to survive.
Trap and Trace is a high-stakes thriller with action that keeps the pace fast. Navy’s character was the epitome of “you gotta do what you gotta do.” She had no formal training but she was able to do what was needed with each situation that she encountered but she was incredibly relatable. There is an attraction element between a couple of characters but it is not what drives the story. Overall this book was a fantastic high-tech thrill ride that kept me engaged from start to finish.
