Publisher's Summary

In 1964, a group of scientists called the Los Alamos Five came close to finishing a nuclear energy project for the United States government when they were abruptly disbanded. Now the granddaughter of one of those five scientists, aerospace engineer Elinor Mitchell, discovers that she has highly sensitive information on the project in her possession--and a target on her back. 

SNAP agent and former Navy cryptologist Kekoa Young is tasked with monitoring Elinor. This is both convenient since she's his neighbor in Washington, DC, and decidedly inconvenient because . . . well, he kind of likes her. As Elinor follows the clues her grandfather left behind to a top-secret nuclear project, Kekoa has no choice but to step in. When Elinor learns he has been spying on her, she's crushed. But with danger closing in on all sides, she'll have to trust him to ensure her discoveries stay out of enemy hands. 

Natalie Walters sucks you into the global race for space domination in this perfectly paced second installment of her SNAP Agency romantic suspense series.

Excellent story and narration

Natalie Walters has written another winner! The great story along with the humor make for excellent listening. And Morgan Hallett is a great narrator. I will enjoy listening to this story and the preceding one in this series, Lights Out many more times.

Excellent contemporary romantic suspense reading

Fatal Code
The SNAP Agency #2
By Natalie Walters
Narrated by Morgan Hallett

Her grandfather's death has rocked her world, making her feel abandoned, but at least Elinor Mitchell has her work and her grandfather's notebooks. And when she survives a near accident thanks to her neighbor, one of her grandfather's notebooks is almost lost in a muddy puddle.

In the six months he's been living in his apartment, Kekoa Young hasn't really communicated with his next-door neighbor, but an inattentive bicyclist changes all of that when he nearly runs her down. Preventing a fall is the most interaction he has had with her to date, and then his less than stellar rescue of her notebook brings her to tears. Ouch!

When Kekoa learns that he is supposed to keep an eye on Elinor because his previous investigations skills (cryptography) have cast doubts on Elinor and her loyalties. There is just one problem Kekoa doesn't believe Elinor is guilty of selling company secrets to competitors or foreign governments, even though his work that pointed SNAP in Elinor's direction isn't wrong.

As Kekoa deals with proving Elinor's innocence, she discovers that she needs Kekoa's skills in helping her understand the hidden message in her grandfather's notebooks. But soon the two mysteries seem to be overlapping as danger seems to be lurking around the corner. Are the two related even though nearly six decades separate them?

Fatal Code gives one an insight into Kekoa by sharing parts of his history. An incident in his past caused Kekoa to leave home and family behind. Kekoa is an interesting person - caring, intense, focused, and loyal. Elinor is a fairly private person who seems to trust people but only so far due to her relationship with her parents.

Fatal Code doesn't ignore the other members of SNAP, and I have to admit I love Lyla's character. She is sassy, intelligent, capable, and caring. Her relationship with the other SNAP team members is interesting.

I love the narration - the story is well-paced, and I love hearing all of Kekoa's unique Island speak pronounced because I'm sure I would mangle it so bad if I were reading it on my own. I love being able to "read with my ears" as I commute to work and during my 30 minute lunch break.

Wonderful all the way around!

I didn’t want this book to end! The story line had good movement and was a strong one. The narrator did great! I loved the personalities of the characters…a good mix of serious, humor, and mystery.
