When she returns from a camping trip and getting accosted in her apartment, Jennifer calls on Saul to help her.  Saul has always loved Jennifer, but never acted on the fact since he never wanted his life at The Agency to touch her. That changes with one phone call.

The fifth installment of The Agency series starts a new mystery for the various agents.  Intimate Knowledge introduces the mystery, but mostly revolves around Jennifer’s and Saul’s relationship and the new facts that they learn about each other.   

I had to laugh as I read this book, as it seemed like the head of one section had to ask questions to find out why agents were tripping over each other without warning.  It reminded me of some of the recent news stories about various agencies not sharing information with each other.  I’m sure there will be some ramifications from this in the future.

The relationship between Jennifer and Saul is intense and also stems from the very long friendship they have.  Both have been unwilling to be the first to cross the boundary into a romantic relationship until Jennifer is threatened.  The chemistry between them is very intense and they have a hard time staying focused on staying out of harm’s way.

More information regarding some items will be forthcoming in future installments in this series, and I am looking forward to reading the next book.  To get the most out of this series, readers should read all of them in order.
