The Blackwell Tactical team is back! And growing! And just keeps getting better.
In My Opinion…
When former Portland policeman receives a call from recording artist Leah Kent, he steps up to protect the woman he once loved from a stalker. But when a woman with connections to Leah is murdered backstage, Riley and the entire team band together to figure out who is behind the crime.
Oh, and then there’s the BIG secret Leah has kept from Riley for four years. One that is about to change his life (and oh boy, does he handle this in the best way).
Both Riley and Leah are challenged beyond their limits, leaving them no choice but to put their trust and faith in God. A feat that is especially difficult for Leah who has fought to gain her security.
Readers also get an introduction to the newest team member, Sam, a crime scene investigator in Cold Fear. She is a good fit for the rest of this team with their big personalities. In addition, it was a bit of fun to see a side of Eryn Calloway. Let’s just say she’s a bit star struck by Leah.
As always, Susan Sleeman kept me guessing as to who was behind the murders while embroiling me in the center of the investigation. I always learn something new about police work through Sleeman’s books. Yet, there is always a strong thread of faith, a lesson to be learned in those same books. Both things I thoroughly appreciate in these stories.
I am thoroughly looking forward to team jokester/pretty boy Alex meeting his match.

About the Book
A shared past…
Riley Glen’s former girlfriend, recording artist Leah Kent, is performing at a summer concert nearby and calls to tell him she’s in danger and needs his help. After the concert, he discovers her bending over a girl’s dead body, and the girl has Leah’s name freshly tattooed on her wrist. Leah claims she just found the body and didn’t have anything to do with the murder. When two other bodies are found, both boasting Leah’s name in bright ink on their wrists, she comes under suspicion for the murders. Riley jumps in to defend her from both an imminent arrest and a killer’s deadly rage.
A new beginning?
Riley and Leah had once been a music team and deeply in love. But Riley’s lifelong dream was to be a sniper, not a musician. He chose to follow his dream and has been successful in his career just as Leah has found success in hers. He still has feelings for Leah, but their lives are on vastly different courses. But when she begs for his help to clear her name and protect her, he agrees to do what he can. Riley soon discovers this killer is highly trained and vicious, and Leah won’t survive another day unless Riley uses every skill he possesses to try to save her.
