ABOUT THE SERIES

       Bridget Donavan is an agent with the DIA.
       When we meet her in the first recorded adventure we have of hers, and indications are obvious that she has had a few before we come into contact, she holds the rank of Staff Sergeant in the army. She also holds a reputation for being someone you did not mess with unless you wanted hurt.
       She is described as "a beautiful young woman with piercing golden brown eyes and flaming red hair, about five feet eight, with a slim build and ample endowments ... [who knew] how to use her lean, well-toned body to maximum advantage in ... combat." And combat is something this woman knows a lot about having seen a good share of it in the Middle East. She had joined the army because "she needed to learn how to be strong and how to defend herself. The army provided both goals, and after 9/11, she also adopted a new mission. She wanted to heap retribution on the ones who inflicted the devastation on America."
       The first couple of missions we follow her on, she worked first in the DIA with Captain Matt Higgins being his second-in-command and fighting alongside him. Theirs was a deep friendship, especially since each had saved the other backside more than once. Times will change their employment but not their teamwork as they become assigned to work, apparently, for the President. Even that will not last long, however, and Donavan's life will change again drastically.
       The next few adventures of Donavan will be after she has left the military and finished the degree she had wanted for some time in Greek and archaeology and was able to combine two passions into one as a researcher working in the field. Her ability to dig up, literally as well as figuratively, trouble will remain as strong as ever and she will find she must be as well to survive. Life will see her reconnect with her old friend and boss, Higgins, and again together they will face death.

1 Secret of the Oil Secret of the Oil
Written by Tom Haase
Copyright: 2014

"In Iran, terrorists have gained access to a nuclear device. But they aren't going to set it off on US soil. They're planning to set it off on their own. America's primary vulnerability is one it doesn't control: its oil supply. Terrorists have designed an intricate global plan - from the labs of Moscow to the deserts of Saudi Arabia - to detonate a nuclear device and render prime oil fields unusable. The aftermath will cripple the United States' infrastructure. And the effects on the US will be more devastating than any direct attack. The DIA dispatches a covert team headed by Captain Matt Higgins and Sergeant Bridget Donavan to the Middle East to locate the device and end the plot. But the detonation date has already been set. The clock is ticking down. And there might not be enough time left for Matt and Bridget to neutralize the threat before the world's oil supply goes up in nuclear flame."

MY COMMENTS

       I enjoyed the action in this series a lot. I enjoyed the characters even more. I did not enjoy the giant leaps the series made from story to story as I kept wondering if what I was reading was a prequel or something many years after the previous adventure. I settled on the latter.
       To me it seemed like the author wanted to have two different sorts of adventure series running and chose to use the same character to headline each which did not make much sense to me. Bridget Donavan the agent with the DIA who would kick your butt if you got out of line was awesome. Bridget Donavan the archaeologist who would kick you butt... that did not make as much sense.
