Special Agent Alexandra Cassidy has made a career of disobeying orders, challenging
bigwigs, and asking uncomfortable questions.
What offends her superiors most is that her intolerable antics have earned her one of the best track records in the FBI.
It’s too bad, some cases are better left unsolved.
When Cassidy is transferred to the backwaters of Arizona she finds herself leading a crew
with so many black marks on their records, it’s a miracle any of them remain employed.
Thankfully, their first case pretty much solves itself. But as Cassidy and her team continue
throwing bad guys behind bars, a creeping sense of suspicion grows. The cases are easy, a
little too easy, and troubling patterns become impossible to ignore.
Then things take a violent turn, and an elusive figure steps forward to help.
But in a conspiracy big enough to topple kings, every player has an agenda—and misplaced trust will
have devastating consequences.
Exciting & Gripping, but needs Editing!
An incredible novel, especially for a debut, but it would really benefit from some sharp editing.
Alexandra Cassidy is very serious about her career with the FBI; she has a reputation for not kowtowing to the powers that be, but she does like to get results. Arriving in Arizona, she meets her new team and discovers that they are regarded as a bunch of misfits. However, working together they begin to clear up cases at an amazing rate – too amazing for Alexandra and she begins to get suspicious. What is going on? But, with things ramping up on the investigations, and connections being made between cases, Alexandra and her team have more than enough to be going on with.
This is a packed read and I would definitely like to read more from Mark Ravine. Exciting and gripping all the way through, I really did enjoy the novel but it was rather spoiled by the lack of editing. Nothing which affects the overall story, but it would turn this into a book I could recommend. I hope this evolves into a series with the current characters; I feel there is a lot more to know about each and every one of them. The way in which the different threads of the story amalgamate is very clever. However, with the issues I’ve discovered I can really only offer this one 3.5*.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy of this novel; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
