NO ESCAPE (4) by Meredith Fletcher: Detective Heath Sawyer is searching for the man who killed his fellow detective and good friend. Heath believes the killer is a magician with a sociopathic sinister edge. When the attractive sister of the latest victim, Lauren Cooper, intrudes into his investigation, Heath finds her annoying yet feels her pain. Lauren won’t stop pushing Heath until she gets some answers about her sister’s death. Both on a path to catch the sadistic magician, the feelings between them grow. Heath’s gritty yet sensitive edge is a perfect complement to Lauren’s toughness. The crisp dialogue and the genuine feelings of pain and loss felt by both characters make this a very good read.
