New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann, whom USA Today calls "the reigning queen of military suspense," breaks out a rapid-fire collection of pulse-pounding, heart-tugging stories and novellas featuring the intrepid men and women of Troubleshooters Inc., fiction's hottest ultimate counterterrorism squad.
• Tough-as-nails Troubleshooters operative Sam Starrett learns the agony of loving someone in danger—and the hell of waiting on the home front—as his wife, Alyssa, hurtles into a foreign hotspot that's about to boil over.
• Navy SEAL Frank O'Leary's ill-fated holiday reunion with his older brother takes a turn for the better—when a chance encounter on a rainy New Orleans street gives Frank a reason to be thankful after all.
• In a maze of tunnels deep beneath a military base in Germany, Jules Cassidy, Alyssa Locke, and their comrades in arms match wits with terrorists on a mission with explosive consequences.
Plus more never-before-released adventures featuring Jenk, Izzy, Gillman, Lopez, Kenny, Savannah, and other members of SEAL Team 16—along with Suzanne Brockmann's exclusive interviews with her beloved characters.

Book #18 in the Troubleshooters, Inc. series, HEADED FOR TROUBLE is a collection of short stories that offer some insight into and adventures with some of my favorite characters.
I really enjoy this series and jumped on the opportunity to catch up with and get more detail about the characters. This collection included some previously published stories and some brand new adventures. The stories included some fan favorite characters and some older, possibly forgotten about characters. The short stories were enhanced by timelines, character interviews, and background information. It was particularly nice knowing where these short stories occurred in relation to the other books in the series.
We got to travel all the way back to 1999 and see Navy SEAL Frank O'Leary meet his true love while on leave in New Orleans, and we get to see a lot of Alyssa, Sam, and Jules. We also get to meet some new SEALs from Team Thirteen who are dealing with different threats in a different time. I'm sure we'll be seeing more of Team Thirteen soon. The interviews with Tom and Kelly, and Kenny and Savannah, and the conversation with Jenk, Gillman, Lopez, and Izzy are fantastic. Fun characters whose heads it is fun to be inside for a little bit. Suzanne Brockmann does such an amazing job bringing her characters to life and making her readers care about them and want to know more about them. Other aspects of the book that served as enhancements were the Frequently Asked Questions section and the Glossary of Terms.
This was a great book to read and a nice filler while waiting for the next full Troubleshooters, Inc novel to be released.
