BOOK SYNOPSIS
Second in Network command, Captain Shannon McKee leads the organization with an unfeeling, iron fist, just as her father did before her. Yet, when the opportunity comes to take down the most notorious drug dealer in history, she goes after her heart’s desire—to utterly destroy the man who killed her younger brother.
But Mareno Ortega isn’t at all what Shannon expects him to be. He’s intelligent, attractive, charming, shy...and, unbelievably, a doting father to his two children. Shannon has more reason to hate this criminal than anyone else, yet she finds herself confused by his contradictions. Is he a man with no options, playing a game he desperately wants out of? Or is he an enigma, trying to seduce her in a cat-and-mouse chase she can’t win?
The only man alive who can stop this undercover angel from pursuing her suicide mission is the Navy SEAL she served with and nearly lost her heart to, Captain Ron Blair, currently Network Master Strategist. But can Ron save her...from herself?

BOOK EXCERPTS
Shannon McKee could never stand the silence. When the compound was filled, a mission in prep or play, the place buzzed with an intangible state of agitation. She’d grown addicted to it in the past three years she’d been overseeing daily operation of the Network. The white-clench of staying in control, remaining at the top, kept her fueled and gave her purpose. But the silence...

...makes me realize just how tired I am. Hell, beyond tired. I sleep eight hours a week. I’ve long since forgotten what existing on any normal level feels like.

There was no other way to rule the world. And her old man knew that.

Shannon shook her head. Her fatigue was making her empathize where she couldn’t allow any leeway.

Irritably, needing to focus on something else besides her restlessness, she reached for her phone to buzz Comm. Before she could push the button to demand the daily Ortega B&A’s, Justine Fielding’s voice filled her office overlooking the Comm and Systems Analysis department.

“Angelo wants to see you in the tower, #2,” Justine announced.

Simultaneously pressing the button to respond and rising to walk over to the panel of glass overlooking the section below, Shannon asked, “What does he want?”

Justine, head of Comm & Systems Analysis, had glanced up at her from her terminal below. Shannon didn’t need to see her up close to know she was close to dropping from fatigue herself.

“He just said he wanted to see you in the tower.”

Shannon nodded. “En route.”

“Copy.”

“Fielding?”

“Yeah?”

“Get some shut-eye. I’ll see you at 0700.”

The surprised look on one of her youngest and most valuable operative’s face almost made Shannon laugh. But she didn’t. She no longer remembered how to.

“I’ve almost got the Ortega Cartel B&A—”

Each and every day, Shannon requested a breakdown and assessment of the suspected movements of the highest-level drug trafficker on a global scale. Justine had begun to provide it at the end of the day without her superior’s specific request.

“0800’s soon enough. Drop ’til morning. That’s an order.”

She punched the button on the console overlooking the window to sever the connection, then darkened the windows. In the privacy of the office she sometimes shared with her Head of Operations, Angelo Pluzetti, she stretched, feeling every single kink and ache as if they’d accumulated all day just for this moment.

God, she was tired. Realizing that fact almost never happened because there was no time in this place for anything but the situations at hand. Crime—evil—never slept. Nor could the Network. The organization had been in existence for the last half-century, formed by the President at that time and Shannon’s father, Captain Tom McKee—a career officer and a decorated war hero. The organization was funded by a major technology corporation—a front company that designed innovative equipment both for public use, and devices only the Network had access to. Expanding Technology Industries (ETI) functioned separately from the Network, providing the perfect cover for the underground bunker built deep in the earth beneath ETI’s skyscraper.

Sanctioned by the American government, only the highest officials in the White House knew about it, including the President and a select committee called Oversight. Three years ago, Shannon had headed the committee, after her father had been assassinated and she’d been asked to step into his role. Since the inceptions of their first missions, the Network had run at ninety-eight percent efficiency. Her father set that bar, and she’d been determined to bring it to a hundred percent. At best, she’d seen to it that the number hadn’t slipped a single point. She would never allow herself to believe her father could do anything better than she could. She wouldn’t let him win that way. Even after his death, she refused to give him the blessing of forgiveness.

BOOK REVIEWS
Five Angels and a Fallen Angel Reviews Recommended Read! “Undercover Angel by Karen Wiesner is the 7th book in Ms. Wiesner’s Incognito Series and I am definitely going to find and read the first six! I couldn’t decide if I wanted Shannon to choose Ron or Roman. And I couldn’t quite figure out if Roman really was the bad guy in the whole situation. The history she obviously had with Ron pulled at me, but at the same time I wanted to root for the underdog, Roman.

The relationship that I learned was between Shannon and her father was something that I knew she needed to work through in order to be able to love again and with Ron she is able to do that. On the other hand, Roman obviously needed someone to believe in him and help protect his kids. The relationship between Shannon and Roman’s children is very telling. Undercover Angel is a definite must read by this author.” Reviewed by: Kim N. for Fallen Angel Reviews

4 ½ stars! "This seventh book in the Incognito Series is a winner. The plot is fast paced, intense and finishes with a satisfying bang. Shannon and Ron are an electrifying couple. Thoroughly entertaining!" - Reviewed by Barb Anderson for Romantic Times BOOKreviews

“UNDERCOVER ANGEL is book seven in author Karen Wiesner's exciting suspense-adventure INCOGNITO SERIES. The ongoing tale of The Network, the world's most clandestine, most powerful law-enforcement organization, the INCOGNITO SERIES leaves readers eagerly anticipating the next installment. A masterful rendition of character is a hallmark of author Karen Wiesner's many novels, as is a plot with more jumps and turns than a rampaging roller coaster, and tons of unexpected events and consequences. Readers on the edge of their seats will wonder what will happen next, as UNDERCOVER ANGEL unfolds with the speed of a riveting action film, and just as much detail in the settings. From Chicago to the Gulf Coast of Florida, with flashbacks and visits to Algiers, there's a setting for everyone and every character is right in place. Ms. Wiesner spins a tale of a woman overworked and on the brink of health and emotional disaster, whose drive for vengeance and whose unforgiveness of her father's errors compound to lead her to the brink of her own destruction. Her less empathetic traits are shown to indeed have a sound background, and the reader will find herself sympathizing with Shannon-and many of the other characters-despite their actions.” Frost, Dark Angel Reviews


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Undercover Angel, like all of the Incognito Series, is a complex read. Karen Wiesner takes the reader on a journey into a secret organization. The Network has the ability to fight crime in a way that traditional law enforcement cannot. Shannon McGee is the second in command. She has high standards for those that work under her and higher standards for herself. Currently, the Network is after the Ortega Cartel. To Shannon, Mareno Ortega is a puzzle. He was a criminal but there was a lot she could learn from him. Fans of the Incognito Series will want to rush to get the latest installment. Book 7, Undercover Angel, demonstrates the need for each person to have personal freedom. Shannon McGee is a multifaceted character. She strives to be strong and independent but deep within needs to be loved. The plot of Undercover Angel flowed smoothly, capturing my attention and holding it. I am curious to see what Wiesner’s next adventure will be.” 4 Stars! - Reviewed by Debra Gaynor for ReviewYourBook.com
