Description

WHITE JADE is a fast-paced thriller that spins a web of deceit and murder across the globe, featuring characters caught up in a deadly international power game. 

Former Recon Marine Nick Carter works for the Project, a covert black ops unit reporting to the President. He's taciturn and tough, with a dark history of emotional and physical scars. Selena Connor is a beautiful, strong and skilled linguist. When her wealthy uncle is murdered by someone looking for an ancient book about the elixir of immortality, she's thrown into Nick's dangerous world. 

Nick is assigned to protect Selena and help her recover the missing text. The search escalates into a life and death adventure reaching from the gold country of California to the high country of Tibet, from Washington to Beijing. Along the way Nick and Selena begin a relationship forged by danger, combat and betrayal. Someone is out to take over China and attack America--and Nick and Selena are right in the line of fire. 

International intrigue, terrorist acts, romance, patriotism and the threat of nuclear war form the core of the book, the first volume in a series featuring Nick, Selena, the Project and the ongoing, complex relationship between the main protagonists.

    A face paced quick read that was enjoyable. Sometimes it was a little "over the top" with the action sequences but a nice bit of escapism. Anxious to see the next books in the series

    Author Alex Lukeman's White Jade is so action packed great for all readers but with women in powerful roles it is a great read for women too. I love the adventure and the places Lukeman takes us.

    A true page turner. Can't wait to see if Selena decides to become part of the team. The story line is really believable as if it was a true story
