Jack is a famous radio disco jockey and a close friend with his boss Mike, who has been murdered to keep secrets from getting out.  After Jack learns vital information about Kate, his response is not positive, making Kate think it best they go their separate ways. 

Kate is still recovering from an attack, resulting in memory loss, and wants to get back to work to forget her pain and terror of that night.  She is a tough go-it-alone person and keeps busy working for her friend, Mike.  Even though she has fallen for Jack, her job as an FBI Agent keeps men away from her because of the danger. 

Jack and Kate go into hiding after he’s poisoned and Kate comes under suspicion in Mike’s death.  The two of them are trying to solve a murder and find the information Mike left for them.  During Jack and Kate’s efforts, they find time to spend with friends and learn more about each other. 

Fallout is the third book in the Tarot series and it’s just as captivating as the first two books.  I have grown to really enjoy Ms. Romine writings.  Her creative research of the internal working of the FBI and radio broadcasting has made me more appreciative of their jobs.  Jack and Kate are two very likeable characters that depend on each other and their extended family. 

Kate continues to be the strong-willed, hard working woman on the force and her sensitive side is more than I expected of her.  She knows what she wants out of life, but not too willing to sacrifice her heart for any man easily.  Jack, being the playboy, finds himself falling for Kate and the drama is on between them.  They learn that trust is not an easy feeling to have but in the end, who knows what the outcome will be.

Again, after I finished with the book, I am still left with some unanswered questions and hope there is a fourth story to explain everything left unsaid.  This is truly a great story and I enjoyed every moment of reading it.
