Dr. Priscilla Hackling finds herself thrown back into the murder investigation of her fiancé, Trey Whittington. While she was a suspect three years ago, she’s now working with the police to find the murderer, Egyptian artifact trafficker, Zarka El-Din. During a sting operation in Siwa, she and Agent Donnie Barnes are drawn to each other but Priscilla, overcome by personal ghosts from her past, decides a relationship isn’t possible. Priscilla realizes she’s the bait in the ruse and uncovers others involved with El-Din. Will she and Donnie reconcile and unravel the reason behind Trey’s death before El-Din kills her, too?

The Tempering Agent is #3 in a series. I have not read the previous books but that didn't hinder me in the reading of this book, but you might want to go back and start with #1. Some of the main characters in this story are Donnie, Priscilla, Rahan, and Liz. This is the first book that I have read by this author. The writing style of this book was nice . Priscilla is a woman that is still dealing with the grief from her fiance's death. Donnie I found to be kind of irritating . This story is full of romance, suspense, and lots of adventure. This was an enjoyable read. Disclaimer : I was given a complimentary copy of this book but all thoughts and opinions are my honest ones.
