Florida hunting and fishing guide Kate Garrett is an expert at staying alive in the wilderness. But even her impressive skills are pushed to their limit when she's taken hostage by a group of escaped cons looking for the $10 million they hid before getting caught. Fighting for her life, Kate gets help from an unlikely source -- escaped convict Shane Warren, who's actually an undercover FBI agent. Meredith Fletcher's Storm Force (4) is full of nonstop action. Kate's gutsy, fearless character is admirable, and the secondary plot -- in which Kate's ex-husband is also the target of a criminal forcing her to fight to save her children -- adds an extra layer of excitement.
