After a whirlwind romance, Taryn Young is preparing to board a plane at Houston International Airport, bound for a dream honeymoon, when a bomb decimates the terminal. Injured but still alive, she awakens to discover her husband is missing and they’re both considered prime suspects in the attack. Further, the FBI is convinced her husband isn’t who he appears to be.
Agent Grayson Hall’s number-one priority is to catch those responsible for the day’s act of terror. All evidence is pointing to Taryn and her new husband. But his instinct tells him her pleas of innocence are genuine. Is her naiveté just for show, or could she truly be another victim of a master scheme, possibly linked to the software she recently developed for her company?
With both their lives and reputations on the line, and the media outcry for justice increasing with each passing minute, Taryn and Grayson have no choice but to trust one another . . . and pray they can uncover the truth before they become two more casualties.
Firewall centers around Taryn Young, a young woman who works for a software company. The day after her wedding while at the airport, getting ready to head out for their honeymoon, the terminal is bombed. Taryn is injured and her new husband has disappeared. Even worse, Taryn wakes up in the hospital, only to find out out the she and her new husband, Shep, are prime suspects in the attack. Agent Grayson Hall is assigned to the case, and while all of the evidence currently points at Taryn, he can't help but believe in her innocence. While many think it's a terrorist attack, Taryn is convinced it has something to do with the software she recently developed for her country.
When I started this book, I really didn't think it would be very interesting. However, once I started reading, I had a hard time putting it down. I'm not typically into suspense stories, but this one was awesome. It kept me guessing the whole time, with all of the twists and turns. I appreciated how the situation brought Taryn back to the Lord and a dependence on Him to get her through situations she had no control over. I highly recommend this book. You won't be able to put it down!
