Image of Into the Fire (Troubleshooters, Book 13)

A hallmark of Brockmann's recent thrillers is her complex cast of characters. She juggles multiple storylines while keeping the emotional quotient intact. Relationships are messy and, for most of the characters, the impact of post-traumatic stress disorder is acute. Brockmann's thrillers make you think and hold your breath!

A lot of lives were damaged in the aftermath of the shooting that killed former Troubleshooter Vinh Murphy's wife, Angelina. Murphy and many others hold neo-Nazi leader Tim Ebersole responsible. So when Ebersole turns up dead years later, Murphy is the prime suspect. Ex-cop Hannah Whitfield has been in love with Murphy for years, but her best friend married him. After Ebersole's killing, Murphy asks Hannah for help, because he can't remember his alcohol-blurred actions during that time. Can Murphy and Hannah unlock the truth, and what if Murphy did kill Ebersole? Fearing for their friend, the rest of the Troubleshooter team is on the case, whether Murphy wants them to be or not.
