Publisher's Summary

An address scribbled on a piece of paper leads Rachel Hatch to New Mexico. It's the only lead she has in the two-decade old mystery shrouding her father's death. It should be a simple in-and-out investigation, but her plans change when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a local gang.

She could cut and run, but her actions have put a family in danger. And Hatch is the only one willing to protect them. Hatch gets more than she bargained for when she realizes danger comes from all sides. Her cunning and skills can save her and the family.

If she doesn't run out of time first.

Does not disappoint!

DOWNBURST is Book 2 in the former military cop Rachel Hatch series by military thriller authors L.T. Ryan and Brian Shea. Remember that she is called Hatch rather than Rachel, never Rachel. Book 1 is titled Drift and it was released in audio format in late March 2020. Downburst was released in Kindle format on April 2, 2020 so I borrowed using Kindle Unlimited and read it early in April. (Book 3 titled Fever Burn is set in Kenya and it was released in Kindle format on June 5, 2020. I have no idea when it will be released in audio format.)

Hatch is an former military policeman who was forced to retire after 15 years of service due to a serious injury to her right arm. She returned home to find that he older sister had been murdered leaving two teenagers. After solving that murder in Drift she set out to find out why her dad who she idolized had been killed when she was in her early teen years. Downburst finds her in a small New Mexico town following her dad's trail.

Hatch has a lot in common with Jack Reacher including the military police background, the insistence on being called by her last name, and the trail of bad-guy bodies she leaves in her wake.

This is a fun series made more so by the excellent narration of Marnye Young. Thanks to Audible listener Shelley for finding this series for us.

This series has great potential!

This is book two in the Rachel Hatch series. Rachel arrives in a small New Mexico town with a lead to a person who may have information about her deceased father. What she finds instead is a town ruled by bikers and gangs. Wouldn’t have bothered her until it became personal. Lots of action. This is a fun read.
Marnye Young does a great job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Great series

I am really enjoying this series. I think I read somewhere this character is like a female jack reacher. I agree. I listened to this book in one day. Same with the first. It grabs you right away and I love all the characters and seeing the main character change and grow. I hope this series continues for awhile. It’s fantastic

Female Jack Reacher

Well-written and hard to stop listening. For those of us who are die hard Reacher fans, discovering this series was an amazing find. In many ways, I actually enjoy this character more than Reacher in that as a female, she can tap into a different set of emotions as she helps administer justice for those in need. Can’t wait for the third installment!
