The effects of post-traumatic stress
disorder once again play a significant
role in Ross' hot new thriller. One
interconnecting thread in her High
Risk books is a doomed mission in Afghanistan where the heroes faced untenable circumstances and are
now trying to rebuild their lives.
Strong heroines are a Ross specialty, and she doesn't disappoint here. This
is a great read for those wanting
thrills and chills.
When a high-profile general is killed by a sniper in South Carolina, FBI agent Caitlin Cavanaugh heads up the task force, which quickly surmises they have a serial sniper on their hands. Having been a sniper himself, former Navy SEAL Quinn McKade has a unique perspective on this killer. Agreeing to work with Quinn stirs up steamy memories of their passionate single encounter years ago.
When a local TV reporter, Valentine Snow, starts receiving messages from the killer that indicate the spree is only beginning, Cait and Quinn start to suspect the kills are not random. This killer has a definite agenda ... but does it include Cait as well? (SIGNET, Sep., 400 pp., $7.99)
