A WILD AND HIDDEN AGENDA

It begins one night in a South Beach bar called The Wild Zone. The players include a bartender (Kristin); a mysterious woman who orders Pomegranate martinis (Suzy); and three guys with various vulnerabilities, axes to grind, and history: Jeff, Tom, and Tom's younger half-brother Will.

Jeff and Tom have been friends for a long time and served in Afghanistan together, returning home with very different records: Jeff, with a medal, and Tom, a dishonorable discharge.

When the three men first catch a glimpse of the mysterious Suzy that night, they bet with one another about who can bed the woman.

Hours later, the beginnings of a very convoluted plan is set in motion.

What agenda is dictating Suzy's actions? And what rivalries between Jeff, Tom, and Will define their actions over the next few days? Who will win Suzy's heart and help her escape from her abusive husband? And what does Kristin have to do with everything that soon happens?

As events begin to escalate, everything falls into place and the complete agenda is revealed.

Without spoiling the plot, this is about all I can say, except that the plot was suspenseful and totally captivated my attention; the characters were realistic, vulnerable, and flawed. How the puzzle finally fits together was surprising to me, although there were certainly clues along the way.

I enjoyed The Wild Zone: A Novel, but it's not my favorite by this author, which is why I'm giving this one four stars.
