In Shadowed Passage, Dylan has a dual mission, reunite his family, which was torn apart when he was a child, and thwart a terrorist attack. One member of his new team happens to be the major's girl, intent on thwarting his best efforts to concentrate on his work, taking every opportunity to exploit the sexual energy between them.
