DRAWN IN BLOOD
In the follow-up to last year's Twisted, Kane
once again focuses on
the exploits of former FBI agent Sloane Burbank and her lover, agent Derek Parker. Although their relationship appears back on track, family loyalties could jeopardize it. Kane builds on the friction divided loyalties can engender and delivers a tale fraught with revenge and betrayal. Utterly compelling.
When Sloane's mother is attacked in her apartment, Matthew panics and wants Sloane's help but insists she not reveal anything to Derek. Sloane agrees, but Derek suspects that Matthew's problem is tied to his own Triad case. Vengeance is the key driver here, and death and destruction follow in its wake. (MORROW, Sep., 336 pp., $24.99)
