Book Review - Deadline by Sandra Brown

Page Turning, Breath Holding Intrigue
by: Sandra Brown
Grand Central Publishing
Dawson Scott, a journalist just returned from Afghanistan.  His godfather and FBI agent Gary Headly asks him to go to Savannah to cover the trial of Willard Strong  who is accused of killing Jeremy Wesson the son of Carl Wingate and Flora Stimel, who were notorious murderers decades ago but have escaped captured.  Dawson is suffering PTSD complete with nightmares which has caused him to turn to drugs and alcohol.  The last thing he wants to do is go to Savannah, but he feels he owes it to his Godfather, since Headly has been tracking Wingate for decades.  From the first time he sees Amelia Wesson, widow of Jeremy Wesson he feels drawn to her and her two sons. 
This book is filled with a lot of page turning, breath holding intrigue.  I have to admit that I didn’t see the ending coming in this book and was totally surprised.  MS. Brown brings together a book filled, with mystery intrigue, compassion, romance and murder, which makes this a must read. 
Disclosure: I was given a copy of this eBook by the publisher, Grand Central Publishing, through Net Galley  blogger program for review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
