Armed and Dangerous is the fifth installment of the adventures of Ty Grady and Zane Garrett. They are FBI agents who are partners in work as well as in life. I was delighted when this next installment came out because I had read that one of the authors was taking a break from writing. I was afraid I was going to be left wanting an ending or a continuing of the series. Luckily Abigail Roux has done a good job of taking the series to the next step. As I have with the first 4 books, I recommend this one as well as the full series. It’s great. The characters will pull you in and you will want more of them.
Ty is left alone in the end of Divide and Conquer. Zane was reeling with shock, not knowing where or when Ty would return. When Zane gets a call from the boss though he's sent to Chicago where he finds Ty waiting for him at the airport. Their assignment is to bring an asset back to Washington. To get back to Washington Ty and Zane must travel across country with Julian and his lover Cameron. The weather as well as the trouble from the two men only makes the job harder. When people start shooting at them and trying to stop them from reaching to Washington Ty and Zane must trust Julian with their lives.
Left alone in Baltimore after his unpredictable lover bails, Special Agent Zane Garrett takes his frustration out on everything in his path until he is ordered to Chicago to back up an undercover operative. When he gets there, though, he finds himself face to face with his wayward partner, Special Agent Ty Grady. They have to deal with the uncertainty lingering between them while they work to retrieve their intended mark, a retired hit man and CIA wet-works operative named Julian Cross.
Ty, once a Marine and now an FBI hotshot, has a penchant for being unpredictable, a trait Zane can vouch for. Zane is a man who once lived for his job but has come to realize his heartbreaking past doesn’t have to overshadow his future. They're partners, friends, lovers, and the go-to team for unusual cases. With Cross and his innocuous boyfriend, Cameron Jacobs, in tow, Ty and Zane must navigate the obstacles of a cross-country trek, including TSA pat-downs, blizzards, their uncooperative prisoners, CIA kill teams, a desperate lack of sleep and caffeine, and each other. Ty and Zane are determined to get Julian Cross to DC in one piece, but it’s starting to look like it might be the last thing they do.
