Publisher's summary

FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid takes on her most explosive case yet in New York Times best seller Allison Brennan's Dead Heat….

Deep in the heart of Texas….

Assigned to San Antonio’s Violent Crimes unit, Lucy Kincaid joins a team of seasoned veterans and newer agents for a task force called Operation Heatwave. It’s supposed to be a simple sweep of known offenders with outstanding warrants. But when Lucy and her team try to bust two local brothers for jumping bail, she walks into a hotbed of pure evil. Their names are George and Jaime Sanchez. They are charged with murder, drug trafficking, and worse. And one of them is still out there.

The heat is on….

As Lucy races to capture Jaime Sanchez, more shocking evidence comes to light. The brothers have been using their basement as a holding cell for children they've kidnapped for the cartels. When George agrees to turn on his brother, he is murdered behind bars. Now Lucy has no choice but to go outside the law. Enlisting the help of her boyfriend Sean Rogan and his mercenary brother Kane, she will risk her career - and both of their lives - to bring down a crime lord’s empire… before more innocent lives go up in flames.

My favorite Lucy Kincaid book thus far!!!

This book for me was the best in the Lucy Kincaid series thus far. I am new to this series and at first I wasn’t to sure if I would like the series but in my experience the first book in a series is more often than not my least favorite. Book one in this series wasn’t that great however, I fell in love with Sean and Lucy. Lucy had a horrific incident as a teen however in the 7+ years since her attack and kidnapping she has persevered and become a bitchin badass who you can’t help but love and root for. I enjoyed the introduction of her characters such as Nate, Brad, Jack (whom we’ve heard about but never met), and Ryan Kerros. How Lucy could have lived through her attack and continue to witness the worst humanity has to offer without truly losing it is amazing. This book is totally worth the credit and I love that Lucy is willing to lose it all to not only do what’s right, but also go above and beyond saving many lives including a a heroic life saving rescue of kids and a fellow officer knowing she won’t get any recognition.
I started liking Juan her boss however his treatment of Lucy at the end was uncalled for.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
