Midway through the peace talks Sybil is ordered by the president to return home with a certain briefcase handcuffed to her arm. On the return trip to Washington, DC shots ring out forcing Agent Jonathan Westford and Sybil to evacuate the plane by parachute. The plane explodes as the duo land in The Florida eveglades. They can't make contact because the terrorists following them on the ground will find them and destroy any hope of Sybil reaching DC in time to stop World War III from happening.

LADY LIBERTY is a romantic suspense thriller that is heavy on the suspense. The terrorist threat, taken in light of the events of 9-11, is certainly plausible and believable. The two protagonists represent the ideals America was founded on so it is entirely fitting they would be attracted to one another. Vicki Hinze has written a techno-thriller with heart.
