When Grace Ozmian, the beautiful and reckless daughter of a wealthy tech billionaire, first goes missing, the NYPD assumes she has simply sped off on another wild adventure. Until the young woman's body is discovered in an abandoned warehouse in Queens, the head nowhere to be found. Lieutenant CDS Vincent D'Agosta quickly takes the lead. He knows his investigation will attract fierce scrutiny, so D'Agosta is delighted when FBI Special Agent A. X. L. Pendergast shows up at the crime scene assigned to the case.
Finally we get a book worthy of the Pendergast character. I really enjoyed seeing him in action as an FBI agent and an uncommonly brilliant man. Right up until the epilogue I had tremendous hope for this series. We shall see. But this book is a solid 9 out of 10 stars.

Will Robie and Jessica Reel are two of the most lethal people alive. They're the ones the government calls in when the utmost secrecy is required to take out those who plot violence and mass destruction against the United States. And through every mission, one man has always had their backs: their handler, code-named Blue Man. But now, Blue Man is missing.
Much better than the last book in this series with interesting characters and a lot of action. The story made Robie and Jessica seem very real and very human. Something about the title and the ending of the story make me think the series could be coming to a satisfying conclusion.

When retired senior CIA analyst Rico Perris plunges off a cliff in his vintage Porsche while speeding through the mountains of Colorado late one snowy night, the local sheriff rules it an accident. CIA officials, however, suspect otherwise. Their suspicions are soon heightened after two other former intelligence analysts turn up dead under questionable circumstances. All three victims were once assigned to the same top-secret project: an internal review of the CIA's long-rumored involvement in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Even though I figured out the bad guy about halfway through, I liked this book. Even more, I liked the ending and the promise it held for stories to come. This is a great series!

I loved the first few Maiden Lane books but really could not find interest in the middle part of the series. I was pretty bored when I saw this release and decided to get it. But after hours of stressed listening about a horrid subject, I was really ready for it to end. I did listen to the whole story but it was not a relaxing, enjoyable romance. It left me wrung out emotionally. Be ware before getting this book. It is not a feel good story.

Sheriff Walt Longmire is enjoying a celebratory beer after a weapons certification at the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy when a younger sheriff confronts him with a photograph of 25 armed men standing in front of a Challenger steam locomotive. It takes him back to when, fresh from the battlefields of Vietnam, then-deputy Walt accompanied his mentor Lucian to the annual Wyoming Sheriff's Association junket held on the excursion train known as the Western Star, which ran the length of Wyoming from Cheyenne to Evanston and back.
I was beginning to think that this was just another Longmire story that did nothing to further the main storyline that started 4 or so books back. Then all of a sudden it came together with a big "oh no!" This book is not to be missed as it sets the scene for the next one. Now I can't wait.

Eight years ago, Sharlah May Nash's older brother beat their drunken father to death with a baseball bat in order to save both of their lives. Now thirteen years old, Sharlah has finally moved on. About to be adopted by retired FBI profiler Pierce Quincy, and his partner, Rainie Conner, Sharlah loves one thing best about her new family: they are all experts on monsters.
I have shied away from this author because I needed a break from violence. But I am really glad I chose this one on the sale. It was well worth the full price and now I might go back to read more of this series. A solid 9 out of 10 stars.
Kline Grant has traveled the world for more than a decade to avoid going back home - and to make sure she doesn't see Ben, her former fiancé. But her mother's recent health troubles make it impossible for Kline to stay away. She plans to check on her mom, avoid Ben, and then get back on the road again. But the quirky town locals of Anderson Butte, a private little celebrity hideaway in the picturesque mountains of Colorado, have a very different plan.
This series was my first by this author. I totally enjoyed every book. Great characters, a setting that makes you want to visit - and a happily ever ending. Total relaxation and enjoyment!
When a forgotten journal materializes decades after Drake Ramsey's father vanished in the Amazon jungle, Drake decides to follow in his footsteps and search for the legendary treasure of the Inca empire hidden in the lost Inca city of Paititi.
Totally unbelievable but totally enjoyable adventure with fascinating characters. I'm hooked for the next in the series.
In Atlanta, Dr. Peyton Shaw is awakened by the phone call she has dreaded for years. As the CDC's leading epidemiologist, she's among the first responders to outbreaks around the world. It's a lonely and dangerous job, but it's her life - and she's good at it. This time she may have met her match. In Kenya, an Ebola-like pathogen has infected two Americans. One lies at death's door. With the clock ticking, Peyton assembles her team and joins personnel from the Kenyan Ministry of Health and the WHO.
I'm really glad I got this through Kindle Unlimited and didn't pay a credit for it. It would probably have been a much better book with some serious editing to bring it to half the length. The story would have flowed better and kept the excitement up. I doubt I continue with this series.
