Aleesha Gautier is a naval doctor who decides that what she really wanted in the services was to be a little more active, and join an all female special ops team, the Medusa project. This is a mission uniquely suited to the team as the terrorists who have captured the cruise ship have let the men go.

It's not quite a thriller and not quite a romance but it falls somewhere between the two stools. While an interesting thiller it sometimes read like the author was ticking off boxes for the plot and it didn't really look like the rest of the team was doing that much while the main character got centre stage.

Aleesha is a strong character and knows her own mind, her team are all strong women used to competing with men and not willing to back down if they think they're right. The Hijacker that she gets involved with leaves her a little confused because she's not sure whether she should trust him or whether he's trying to fool her. And some of that tension is well maintained.

Diverting but nothing special. Not the worst of it's kind but pretty typical. ( )
