Tess O’Rourke is back in Janice Cantore’s second book in her In The Line of Duty series.
About the Book
Police Chief Tess O’Rourke thought she’d taken care of her small town’s drug problem last year. But now Rogue’s Hollow residents are up in arms over a contentious vote on legalizing the sale of marijuana within city limits. And when an eighteen-year-old is found dead of a possible overdose, Tess wonders if the local pot farms might be involved and begins to fear that a new, deadlier drug supply chain has cropped up. As tempers flare and emotions boil over, Tess faces the possibility of losing the town’s support.
With her relationship to Sergeant Steve Logan on shaky ground, Tess could really use a friend, and she feels drawn to Pastor Oliver Macpherson’s quiet presence. But the anger she holds over her father’s death prevents her from embracing his faith and finding peace.
Battling storms within and without, Tess is shocked when a familiar face from her past shows up in town to stir up more trouble. And his threats against Tess may prove lethal.

In My Opinion…
In Lethal Target, Janice Cantore drops readers right into the turmoil and suspense in Rogue Hollow, OR. As police chief Tess O’Rourke deals with contention and high emotions among the citizens as the vote for whether to legalize marijuana sales in the city, the death of a young man only stirs the dissention.
If she doesn’t have enough on her plate, a man from her past who is determined to exploit her arrives, making her job even more difficult.
As a former police officer, Cantore brings knowledge, experience, and authenticity to her books. With several threads and suspects, Lethal Target was a little hard to follow at first, but I did settle into the story and the suspense until all was revealed. And the growing friendship between Oliver and Tess was a highlight. And while this story has no romance in it (maybe just hints at things to come but that’s pure conjecture on my part), the suspense makes up for t.
