From To save her only brother, Andrea Finch must face down a criminal mastermind, the FBI, and her own demons in this thrilling novel from the author of the bestselling Tracers series.

Police detective Andrea Finch is a rising star in her department until a split-second decision derails her career. Disgraced and disillusioned, she's on leave from her job when she gets an urgent call from her younger brother. She'd prefer to ignore his latest plea for cash, but this time instinct tells her something is very wrong. Andrea's search for answers takes her to a dusty Texas border town where danger lurks in plain sight and nothing is quite what it seems.

FBI agent Jon North is working undercover in west Texas investigating an unsolved murder that may be linked to a broader plot. But when the evidence points to Andrea's brother, Jon finds that persuading the stubborn cop to help will be harder than cracking his toughest case.

Andrea must find a way to do what's right while protecting her only sibling. As the clock ticks down on a deadly plot, Andrea and Jon race to confront a heartless killer who will stop at nothing to deliver a final, terrifying message.


My Rating: 2 stars out of 5

This was another one of those unfortunate instances where the overall story did not meet my expectations based on what the premise had been. I found the majority of the story was hard to follow (to the point where I found myself constantly having to go back and re-read the same paragraphs over and over to try and make sense of how the story was progressing). The characters were annoying (and didn't seem to be as well developed as I had expected them to be either). 

Lastly, the ending was abrupt. After everything it took to get there, I was hoping for more that sadly didn't come.
