Tracy brings serious competition to the big boys of spy thrillers.
If you like John LeCarre, Lee Childs and John Grisham, you will absolutely love this book. It far surpassed my highest expectations.
An unbelievably good book! It is fast moving with so much going on that you will never want to put this book down.
Has it all: mystery, intrigue, action, espionage AND a heroine that isn’t too stupid to live.
A page turner and a pure pleasure.
She’s American, he’s Russian. No one wants them to be together.
As a victim of the Kobra’s bomb, and with unique access to classified information, Fabian Santiago isn’t content with justice being delivered someday. When the Seven Seas unit bogs down in trivia she heads to Ukraine to find the Kobra herself.
When she falls—literally—into the arms of Mischa Sokolov, a charming Russian living in Kiev, their affair is so heated she is distracted from her very personal mission…until she leans that Mischa is not quite what he seems, and that her coming to Ukraine is shaking apart decades old conspiracies…
This romantic thriller is the third book in the Project Kobra series.

Just Awesome! Our story continues the search for Kobra. Fabian goes off the grid to get answers but there is still more intrigue. The ins and outs will have you frantically turning the pages. Nothing is what it seems and no-one is who they appear to be. Fast paced read, exciting story line, excellent characters and a fabulous adventure all in one book. Plan to read it straight through because once you start, you'll turn pages as fast as you can read. Don't even think you might be able to put it down and go to sleep. Wonderful!
Fabian Santiago is a beautiful woman in her early thirties, a volcanologist, who was badly injured in a hotel bombing and still trying to recover from her wounds with physical therapy. Unhappy with the progress of her CIA Director father's special team after a year of pursuing the Kobra she decides to take matters into her own hands. After accessing top secret files she departs Washington D.C. for Kiev, Ukraine to look for her "uncle" Aslan who she believes will lead her to the identity of the Kobra. On the train to Kiev she bumps into a rather handsome man who then takes gentlemanly care of her and whom introduces himself as Mischa Sokolov. He is returning from vacation, is a widower, and works for the Russian Embassy. Fabian has a limp from her injured knee which is braced and Mischa is very kind offering that she stay with him in Kiev. Thus begins a romance though much more of the story concerns the special team and the uprooting and discovery of their treacherous mole who has been hindering any progress. We travel to Istanbul and back to Kiev and also learn who is the Kobra but it remains for another book to track him down.
Tracy has given us in this 3rd installment of the Kobra series a thrilling and balanced story that will keep you on the edge of your seat and reading to the end.
For some reason this is the first time I’ve read this particular genre written by Tracey. It won’t be the last time. This is the 3rd book in the series & although it COULD be read as a stand alone it would be better to have read the other 2 first which I will be doing. There are people in this book from the other 2 & something has happened in the previous book which has had a direct impact on this book.
Spies, betrayal, danger, love, passion. Mischa thinks of himself as a true Russian, secretly fighting for the state until he learns something that turns his world upside down. Something that turns him into an enemy of Russia & a hunter of Kobra.
Only 4 stars because I needed to read the other 2 books beforehand. Thoroughly enjoyed this book & looking forward to the series.
It was too short! – it was all over just as it was gearing up! Can’t wait til the next installment.
Great to have all the characters back in action. A tense year of being suspicious of each other and the trust in the team while they seek out the mole.
The plot includes lots of intrigue, danger, revelations at the usual fast pace with a new romance, a high speed car chase, deception, kidnapping, rescues – you name it!
Fabian is a beautiful volcanologist seeking revenge from a bomb that left her permanently injured. Fabian quickly discovers that she is in over her head looking for the man known as the Kobra who is rumored to be hiding in Russia. However, Fabian has the fortune of meeting Mischa on the train. Mischa is both mysterious and pleasant. The couple talk on the train and seem to have a connection; hence Mischa offers his assistance with finding the Kobra. This is the beginning of a fast-pasted ride full of twists,turns and explosions until the end! This book is kept me on the edge of my seat and I can't wait for the final book to find out how it all wraps up.
Excitement, fear, danger and more charge the characters chasing the Kobra. The pace of the story is often at breakneck speed. Searching for a traitor and starting a new relationship blends in with it all. If you like mystery, car chases, twists and turns, then this story about Fabian and Mischa and their connection will fill every expectation. And then some!
Heart Strike is the third installment in the Project Kobra series. This time, a chance encounter on a train between Fabian and Misha leads to an emotionally-restorative interaction between the two, but also produces the identity of the Kobra. Fabian is on a mission to learn more about a distant “relative” that might lead her to the man that ordered the detonation of a bomb that seriously injured her. Misha, attached to the embassy, discovers his life was more of a lie than he ever could have imagined. When the Kobra strikes at the two of them, it’s a race for their lives. Cooper-Posey at her best.
LOVED IT!! This is a wonderful (and wonderfully) spontaneous romance between Fabian and Mischa with plenty of subterfuge, mild suspense and exciting road races to keep the reader turning pages.
This is a sit on the edge of your seat good! Fabian is on the hunt of the Kobra and totally unprepared for the ruthlessness that she encounters. Throw in a man that she unexpectedly bonds with who is more than he appears and you have a story that winds you up. I loved it. I received an advanced copy of this book and freely leave this honest review.
