Penumbra (The Spook Squad 3) by Keri Arthur


Agent Sam Ryan wants out of the Special Investigations Unit. She’s sick of the attitude from her partner, Gabriel Stern. She’s sick of the paperwork. Most of all, she’s sick of feeling lonely. But her boss isn’t about to let her go that easily. He gives Sam a choice: either stay stuck in her office or guard a clone replacement of Dan Wetherton, a government minister. Sam reluctantly chooses the latter—even though she suspects she’s being used as bait to draw out the SIU’s elusive nemesis.

Gabriel would like nothing better than to be on his own, without a partner to hold him back. Then he learns that Sam has been assigned to protect Wetherton—or whatever it is that’s replaced him. Wetherton’s clone could have come from only one place: Hopeworth, the military base that contains the secrets of Sam’s past. Determined to protect her, Gabriel is drawn into a fight against unspeakable evil. And all too soon, Sam and Gabriel discover that 
the connection between them is far more powerful than anyone could ever have imagined.

My review:
This is a re-release of one of the first series I’d read by Keri Arthur. As I’ve re-read this series for the first time in years I realized just how well it has held up and am reminded just how much I enjoyed living in Sam and Gabriel’s world.
Penumbra is the third and final book in this series.  We finally get some answers about Sam’s past.  We find out who the mysterious Sethanon is and who Joe Black is.  This is the book I liked least in the series because for all the answers we do get there are still questions left unanswered. But it is still one hell of a ride.
