Part 3 of 8: an explosive new installment in the thrilling FBI serial from New York Times bestselling author Carla Cassidy and Tyler Anne Snell, Emmy Curtis and Janie Crouch.
The bomber’s latest threat has thrown the Crisis Management Unit into chaos!
As Lara Grant struggles to hold her fractured team together, she discovers a possible connection between this case and her own past--something she can’t reveal to anyone, especially now.
Because when the bomber’s next target chooses to keep his secret, terror turns to an intimate form of torture, and anyone’s past can be used against them...
As the Whisperer havoc the city, the team of FBI Crisis Management Unit is trying to hold it together. The exhaustion and weariness are in the air, the danger and threat are closer to them than before. They are not only physically sleep deprived but the mentality of the team is challenged as they now fight the forces both inside and outside of the FBI.
The power balance of the team is rattled, as is the edgy tightrope balance between Nick and Lara. A desperate moment causes them to act based on their emotions and oddly that breach of conduct seems to bring results.
A new author takes the pen to continue the story, and I was fascinated by the seamless passing of the baton. It is as the story continues at same wavelength but the observer has taken a step, a little bit to the left, and the view of the tale changes just slightly, giving a new way to look at the invariable scene.
For the first time, we get a glimpse of the Whisperer and his chilling, revengeful, twisted thoughts in his mind. The fact that most of the victims of the culprit seem to be connected, one way or the other, to the FBI's CMU is not only eerie but rather alarming fact.
The darkness of the story, the horrifying results of a possible failure in the case, the strong characters alluring my mind with their determination and pure strength of will to continue and not to give up - the story has it's hook on me and I can't wait to continue the gripping tale.
