When I was contacted by the author, Tess and asked if I wanted to review her book in exchange for an honest review I jumped at the chance – and I’m so glad I did, it was very good! This is the first book in a new series and it shows real promise.
A thirteen year-old girl has been taken – and Special Agent Maggie Kincaid is the only one who can get her back.
When a Senator’s daughter goes missing, every minute counts. The FBI’s best hostage negotiator, Agent Kincaid, knows what it’s like to be a terrified victim. Kidnapped as a child, those memories haunt her every day – and give her an insight into the evil mind behind this deadly crime.
But the Senator’s family has other plans, and have brought in ex-forces security expert Jake O’Connor to oversee negotiations. He’s got secrets of his own, and doesn’t play by the same rule book. With time running out, Maggie and O’Connor will have to overcome their differences to keep this case from ending in tragedy.
The characters are great, the plot is strong and the writing flows with just the right amount of detail and intrigue to keep you hooked. I have added the second and third in the series to my wish list – if they are anywhere near as good as this one, I’ll be one happy lady!
This is book one in the O’Connor & Kincaid series
