Publisher's Summary

A Wall Street Journal bestseller.

A dead conspiracy theorist. A mass murderer. Two cases collide for Callahan and McLane in a pulse-pounding thriller by Wall Street Journal and Amazon Charts bestselling author Kendra Elliot.

A man is savagely murdered outside Portland, and Detective Mason Callahan finds blood-spatter evidence that tells a troubling story. Files reveal the murder victim, Reuben Braswell, was a radical conspiracist. In his home, investigators find pages of diatribes against law enforcement as well as ties to Mason’s fiancée, FBI special agent Ava McLane. The victim was her informant - and had strong reasons to be paranoid.

To Ava, Braswell’s rants were those of a wearying and harmless man…until they collide with her investigation into the murders of police officers and finding the connection becomes urgent. Meanwhile, Braswell’s brother and Ava’s twin sister both disappear, and disturbing acts of sabotage target Ava’s personal life.

For Mason and Ava, the brutal crimes and escalating mysteries create a perfect storm for a terrorist conspiracy that becomes dangerously personal - one that has yet to claim its last victim.

Disappointed

I was so excited when I dove into the newest McLane and Callahan... and then I read it.

Narrator needs to learn how to pronounce local landmarks

I really enjoy Kendra Elliot’s Oregon based books both for the stories and the familiar location. However the narrator of her books needs to learn how to pronounce place names. She finally got The Dallas correct, but book after book she continues to mispronounce Willamette. It is not the “WILLA met” river. It is the “wi LAM et” river. Also Cannon beach not Canyon beach

fast paced

I never read book 1 but have read other books by Kendra Elliot. I liked this one. Read it in one-day. Fast paced and interesting. Although there were some things that happened that were a bit unbelievable overall it was well done.

RECOMMENDATION: READ IT.

So boring and slow that I want everybody’s money back.

This book moved along so slowly that I fell asleep couple times and I had to start again from the beginning. The book was boring it didn’t have any form of excitement and I usually like detective books but this is one book I would never read again or listen to again. Concerning the narrator, it didn’t sound like she was into it during the first part of the book. Maybe she too was bored with the story. I wouldn’t recommend the book and I want everybody’s money back.

Too many loopholes.

It was an OK story but too many loopholes made it implausible. I did enjoy the continuation of characters from The Secret Sister.

Good story

My biggest objection to this book was the narrator. Not that she was bad. I can imagine her in several other books I’ve read, but that controlled, sultry voice just did not fit Ava. She did pretty well with the separation of other character voices, but as Ava just too slow and too sultry. Didn’t feel the character Ava was solid. One minute she’s a controlled and determined Special Agent with the FBI and then she’s all soft and gooey when she’s with Mason. I can handle the emotion that I know our protectors must feel at the loss of life and the hurt they see in their jobs, but it just went from one end to the other too much. I would be wary of partnering with Ava on the job. Same with Mason. Story was pretty good.

Nice twist in the story

Even though the beginning doesn't seem so exciting but cool N steady to an opening of a crime investigation. as you move along it grasps your attention further in keeps you engrossed and the climax of the story is where all the points been earned. I enjoyed it

Excellent Twist

This series just keeps flowing. Although the storyline can be far fetched at times, I love how it seamlessly pulls together. Each character is growing in their role allowing more depth in the storylines.
