Become the hunted.
Deputy Tanner Dempsey and Bree Daniels are tasked with unraveling a deadly mystery in Dallas—one that involves transmitting live feeds of victims trapped in tanks as they fill with water.
Bree’s computer genius is their only hope at solving the crime.
Knowing the darkness in Bree’s past, Tanner is determined to make sure she comes out of this emotionally unscathed.
Especially once they both become a killer’s next target…
I adore Bree and Tanner, their story and the connection they have sizzling in between them. But even more than that, I love the tender feelings, the protectiveness, the caring, the desire to get to know each other, and how they always support each other. The fact that Bree is awkward in social situations comes even more clear and is rather heavily underlined at the beginning, but also explained and showed how it all got to be before the book is over.
The suspense is intense at times. There are hair-raising moments, there are death threats and the ticking timebomb that is counting down in their computer screens. That insanely vehement research into the case with the computers reminded me of the other serial novel the author was part of, Tough Justice: Countdown, and gave just another confirmation that a savage investigation into a murder can be done in cyberspace as well.
Was the storyline a bit predictable as they took the road trip - yes, giving even more severity into the reading experience as you are just waiting for the hammer to hit, so to speak...
The fierce and boisterous suspense and investigation balance the adorably ardent romance developing in between Tanner and Bree. Their story will continue with one more installation, and I am looking forward to it.
