Once again Brennan weaves a complex tale of murder, vengeance and treachery filled with knife-edged tension and clever twists. The Lucy Kincaid/Sean Rogan novels just keep getting better!
Lucy is thrilled and apprehensive about finally attending the FBI Academy. She doesn’t want her past to be a factor, but someone is leaking information. When true-crime novelist Rosemary Weber is murdered in New York, FBI agent Suzanne Madeaux contacts Lucy as Weber’s new book is about a case they both worked on. Lucy is not officially involved, but her FBI mentor Tony Presidio asks for her assistance as he begins to suspect the Weber murder is linked to her first book about the murder of a little girl more than a decade earlier. With Sean’s help, Lucy starts trying to gather information, but a sudden death at Quantico shakes up everything. A killer may be closer than they think! (MINOTAUR, Nov., 384 pp., $7.99)
