About: Suspense and romance combine in Susan Sleeman’s thrilling new novel about an FBI agent who must team up with a beautiful therapist to stop a killer with a deadly new weapon.
Some fears haunt you forever….
As the ballistics and weapon’s expert for the FBI’s special task force nicknamed the White Knights, Rick Cannon has known the Department of Defense was developing self-steering bullets. Rick feared these smart bullets–which have one hundred percent accuracy that can turn even a novice into a lethal sniper–would eventually end up in the hands of the wrong people. But since the ammunition was still in the development stage, he figured they had plenty of time before that happened. He was wrong. Dead wrong.
Until they become reality.
When a homeless vet is killed with a smart bullet, it’s clear that the ammunition has been stolen, and the Knights are called in to find the thief and stop the killings. But they aren’t the only ones desperate to find the killer. Therapist Olivia Dobbs is well known for her success in counseling military veterans with PTSD. When she discovers one of her clients moments after he is murdered, she becomes both the FBI’s prime witness, and suspect.
Despite the mutual attraction that immediately sparks between them, Rick can’t–no he won’t–let Olivia interfere with his investigation. But when the sniper trains his rifle on her, Rick must recall all the skills he learned as a Marine sniper to make sure the next bullet fired isn’t a kill shot that takes Olivia out.
My Rating: 4 stars.
Recommendation: 16 up, warning below.
My favorite character is: Rick was a cool guy to read about and I loved getting to see his part in F.B.I. But the not so great parts of his story were sooo sad and he needed someone to love him. ;D Maybe like a therapist? Anyway, I loved him; his gruff walls to protect himself, his care for his team, and what he does in the last chapters. 🙂 I love the feeling and emotion behind Rick’s character and I didn’t feel like he was shallow like I did in a story like this one.
My Verse for Rick is Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (King James Verison.)
My thoughts: Wonderful, that is what this book is! I loved the suspense but there were some places I skimmed because of to in-depth mentions violence, and murder. I loved the team and the insight into each of the team’s roles. There was fast pacing, high emotion, and dangerous circumstances in this novel with deep characters that drive you to know more.
Warnings: Mentions of blood, abortion, and murder. This book is somewhat a hard read but I loved it!
(I received this book in exchange for my honest review and I’m truly happy to provide it!)
