Andrea Finch, detective, was faced with a situation that caused her to make a split-second decision, without back up. She felt she had no other choice, but her superiors felt otherwise so she was placed on leave, pending an investigation into her actions, leaving her feeling disgraced and disillusioned.
Growing up without parents puts her in the role of being mother to her younger brother, Gavin, so when he calls her asking for money, she is torn between giving in to him or making him stand on his own. She chooses to the latter and he suddenly drops out of college. She follows him to an out of the way ranch in southern Texas, only to find out her brother is somehow involved in bank robberies and a home grown terrorist group. She feels her brother is not the instigator but rather a pawn. Andrea’s path crosses that of FBI agent, Jon North, whose investigation of the robberies, leads him to the same ranch. Although in the beginning Andrea and Jon are at odds and don’t trust each other, they find it in their best interest to work together to help her brother and to keep the terrorists from launching their attack on innocent people.
I felt this is a fast-paced book that in some ways resembled the Oklahoma City bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. It is an intricately woven story with lots of twists and turns that keep you on the edge of your seat. The characters are well developed and very believable. This book is filled with mystery, suspense and just the right amount of romance to keep it interesting. If you are a fan of Laura Griffin this book will not disappoint you.
