About the book:
New York Times bestselling author Allison Brennan’s newest thriller again features an edgy young female LAPD detective and an ambitious special agent, both part of a mobile FBI unit that is brought in to investigate the unsolved murder of a college activist and its alleged ties to high stakes crime in the desert Southwest.
Something mysterious is killing the wildlife in the desert hills just south of Tucson, Arizona. When Emma Perez, a college-intern-turned activist, sets out to collect her own evidence, she too ends up dead. Local law enforcement seems slow to get involved. That’s when the mobile FBI unit goes undercover to infiltrate the town and the copper refinery located there in search of possible leads. Costa and Quinn find themselves scouring the desolate landscape that keeps on giving up clues to something much darker—greed, child trafficking, other killings. As the body count continues to add up, it’s clear they have stumbled on more than they bargained for. Now they must figure out who is at the heart of this mayhem and stop them before more innocent lives are lost.
Brennan’s latest novel brims with complex characters and an ever-twisting plotline, a compelling thriller that delivers.
Emma Perez is a wildlife activist. She has discovered something. Something is killing off the wildlife around Tucson. She is determined to find out what is causing it. But, when Emma is found murdered, it opens up a whole new sinister conspiracy.
I loved book one of this series. This one left me confused in places. The plot is a little complex and tends to take detours. It sort of missed its mark. But, it is still a good story. I just felt the first one is better.
I will also say…this author has some great characters! Plus, Costa and Quinn have fantastic chemistry!
I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review.
