I love a good thriller. This is an alluring novel that captured my full attention; I did not want to put this book down.
The lead female character Alex has gone on vacation with her kids to her old hometown. Alex’s Dad seems to be doing well, but Alex is left with many uncertainties and questions regarding his situation. Something isn’t quite right. Meanwhile the drug cartel has kidnapped a college boy. Being an FBI Agent, Alex finds herself partnering with the Investigator who is trying to determine the whereabouts of the young man.
There are so many twists to this novel. I am looking forward to reading more of her character in other books by John W. Mefford!
I give it a 5/5 rating!
Opinion/rating expressed in this review is my own.
Alex Troutt Thriller, Book #4
FBI Special Agent Alex Troutt returns in a twisting, heart-pounding thriller.
Three flashes of light illuminate a dark sky. An unspeakable evil devours its prey.
The shimmering view of the sun-drenched ocean can often be nothing more than a mirage. For Alex Troutt, a trip back home for a much-needed summer vacation proves only one thing: greed rules. But how it takes root could destroy her world.
Fueled by the lust of power and money, the shadow of death envelopes her seaside hometown, including those closest to Alex. But as disconnected investigations converge into one focal point, Alex will stop at nothing to blow the entire crime ring straight to hell—even if she has to make the ultimate sacrifice…her life.
