Few people know Captain Katherine Kane, explosives expert, is in the even lesser known Secret Assignment Security Specialists, also called S.A.S.S. As a result, when Kate finds trouble underwater there is no one to pull her to safety. That being the case, it is good that she is no stranger to self-reliance or to danger for that matter.

Kate is summoned to help with a top priority assignment. GRID – Group Resources for Individual Development – the largest black market sellers of U.S. intelligence and weapons are holding American military hostages. Thomas Kunz is the terrorist leader who started a diabolical plan to create doubles of government heads of state and replacing the real thing with those doubles. Kate believes she has found the mother lode when she discovers a suspicious underwater cave.

Trouble forces Kate to confide in and rely upon Major Nathan Forester. At first their strong wills have them butting heads like two stubborn mountain goats. Things quickly escalate giving them no choice but to forget self-defense mechanisms and depend on one another on a level few people would understand. On a mission that makes trust an ambivalent factor, Kate and Nathan discover their kindred spirits. When Kate has to make a decision that will most likely kill them she is torn with heart wrenching sorrow and a sense of duty to her country. The odds for Nathan and Kate do not look good, however, the opportunity to love and be loved by a man she respects and admires make her determined to fight like the devil to survive. Their future and the future of the U.S. depend on Kate’s skill. There will be no second chances.

Double Vision is the latest in Vicki Hinze’s War Games miniseries. This impressively researched and engagingly written military thriller is quintessential Hinze. Prepare to be swept into the intrigue, the drama, and the action as Kate and Nathan put their very lives on the line in order to protect their fellow citizens. It is impossible to read a Hinze novel and not feel a sense of pride in country and in the men and women who fight for its freedom.

The love story in Double Vision plays a small role in this military romantic suspense; it has an afterthought feel to it. Nonetheless, readers will remain riveted by this exciting thriller. Vickie Hinze is, in this reviewer’s opinion, the best military romance author out there.
