I am truly impressed by all of the threads from prior books, carefully developed, that came together with such intensity in this one. Normally the action at the end is window dressing, but I was glued to this book to the very last page. Though there is some of the typical Happily Ever After in this series, for the most part, Brockman gives us the behind the scenes and aftermath of each encounter, and these characters are so well done I look forward to every additional detail. A very impressive series, these books show what I've been missing in all those shallow, interchangeable, Alpha soldier series. The Troubleshooters are, indeed, the best.
