Overview

Treason, torture and temptation haunt the GhostWalkers in their most dangerous adventure yet, as Christine Feehan's #1 New York Times bestselling series hits an explosive new high.

Rescuing an industrial spy from the hands of a criminal mastermind is a suicide mission for the GhostWalkers. And there's no one more up to the task than Gino Mazza. He's the perfect killing machine—a man driven by demons so dark and destructive that his blighted soul has given up trying to find solace. But his laser-sharp focus on his target has transformed into something nearing desire.

A treasonous senator dangled top secret GhostWalker data in front of a Chinese crime lord, and he bit. Zara Hightower, one of the world's leading experts on artificial intelligence, was sent in to psychically wipe the crime lord's computer network. She succeeded, but at a huge cost. Now she's the captive of a man who has descended into paranoid madness. Torture and death await her...

But GhostWalkers never leave one of their own in enemy territory. And it's up to Gino to save Zara, or kill her if it turns out she's led them into a trap. Either way, heaven or hell won't stop him...

Gino is the man for Zara. Love at first sight, even though she was a frightful sight when Gino rescued her. He doctored her back to health. Gave her back her self esteem. Went after the man who tortured her and got rid of him. Now they will be family. Excellent story.

4.25 stars--COVERT GAME is the fourteenth instalment in Christine Feehan’s contemporary adult GHOSTWALKERS paranormal, romantic suspense series focusing on an elite group of ‘genetically enhanced’ men and women known as the GhostWalkers. These ‘super soldiers’ were once part of an unauthorized government experiment performed by Dr. Peter Whitney-a man tantamount to evil incarnate. This is GhostWalker/hunter Gino ‘Phantom Wind’ Mazza, and industrial spy/GhostWalker Zara Hightower’s story line. COVERT GAME can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary but I recommend reading the series in order for backstory and cohesion. WARNING: COVERT GAME contains very descriptive scenes of graphic violence and torture that may not be suitable for all readers. Told from dual third person perspectives (Zara and Gino) COVERT GAME follows the abduction, torture and eventual rescue of enhanced female Zara Hightower. Considered a genius in the world of AI (Artificial Intelligence), Zara was Dr. Whitney’s pawn; an industrial spy whose special abilities superseded what the evil doctor considered her glaring failures. Sent to ‘download’ a file about the GhostWalkers, from Chinese crime lord Mr. Cheng, Zara found herself trapped by a man, Bolan Zhu, whose reputation in specialized torture preceded our heroine’s visit to Shanghai. What ensues is the rescue and recovery of our Zara Hightower; the building relationship and romance between our leading couple; and the fall-out when several teams of Whitney’s enhanced soldiers, and Bolan Zhu, are sent to recapture our story line heroine. COVERT GAME is a story of power, abuse, betrayal and revenge. As the series continues to develop the author has changed the original direction of the series in that the enhanced soldiers no longer need or require a ‘female’ to anchor their abilities (Team 1); and the most recent instalment does not confirm or deny the existence of genetically matched DNA between two unsuspecting GhostWalkers, both changes the author addresses in the current story line. I would also like to point out the author continues to justify Trap’s abusive behaviour in Spider Game (GhostWalker #12) as a by-product of Asperger’s Syndrome –a plot point that was never mentioned in Trap’s story line- Spider Game- but has been addressed in the last two instalments in an effort, I believe, to appease the many negative comments and reviews about Trap’s abusive and controlling behaviour. In this, there is also much talk between the heroines, throughout Covert Game, rationalizing and accepting their mates’ controlling behaviour-something I see as the author, once again, as trying to defend her male characters’ less than favourable characteristics. I do not have a problem with alpha males in my ‘fictional’ story lines but the increase in controlling and somewhat abusive behaviour is something the author is most likely trying to address and explain via her female leads. COVERT GAME is a suspenseful and action packed story line. Gino will seek retribution for the woman he loves, retribution that is equal to the torture inflicted upon our story line heroine. The premise is startling, dramatic and intense; the characters are intelligent, complex and charismatic; the romance is intimate and emotional. COVERT GAME is an intriguing and fascinating look at the paranormal.

‘Covert Game’ [GhostWalker series] by: Christine Feehan is another winner! This book is about Zara & Gino; both are GhostWalkers & have been paired by the insane Dr. Whitney. When Zara is held prisoner by Cheng & Zhu, Gino & his teammates rescue her. There’s lots of action, violence, sadness, & happiness in this story about strength, courage, & Love. A few things are explained in this story that left readers wondering about in previous books. A HUGE suggestion will be to start reading the GhostWalker Series from the beginning with book #1. You will better understand how an insane Doctor can be! I HIGHLY Recommend this book! 5 Stars! ?????????? ? Review by: WolfeeTx

This one was intense. The couple reminded me a lot of Vittorio and Grace from Shadow Warrior. He was very dominant and she was submissive, but unlike Vittorio, Geno seemed more open to learn to compromise for Zara, and Zara definitely stood up for what she truly believed in. I enjoyed their story, hate what she went through, totally understood why Geno had to seek vengeance the way he did, but I did like that he felt remorse after that. She softened him up a lot, which I found so romantic. The action was intense, as always, the conflict great, and the plot premise good. There is a lot of sex in this one, but it wasn’t as off-putting like some other CF Ghost Walker books or even Leopard books can be. Not my favorite in the serious, but definitely not the worst, I think my least favorite is still Spyder Game and my favorite is blank Game. Overall enjoyable and entertaining installment in this series.
