On the edge of the Everglades, an eerie crime scene sets off an investigation that sends two agents deep into a world of corrupted faith, greed and deadly secrets.
A ritualistic murder on the side of a remote road brings in the Florida state police. Special Agent Amy Larson has never seen worse, and there are indications that this killing could be just the beginning. The crime draws the attention of the FBI in the form of Special Agent Hunter Forrest, a man with insider knowledge of how violent cults operate, and a man who might never be able to escape his own past.
The rural community is devastated by the death in their midst, but people know more than they are saying. As Amy and Hunter join forces, every lead takes them further into the twisted beliefs of a dangerous group that will stop at nothing to see their will done.
Doomsday preppers and small-town secrets collide in this sultry, twisty page-turning thriller.
Danger in Numbers is a thrilling suspense read about two cops solving an occult crime. Now, I am totally in love with the occult angles in murder mysteries, so I snagged this up fast! I was not disappointed!
Amy is an agent for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and she is sent to investigate a gruesome murder. Hunter is an FBI agent who specializes in cult crimes. Initially, Amy is hesitant to let Hunter in on the case-no one asked for the FBI-but once she realizes how knowledgeable he is about cults, she changes her mind.
While I didn’t really feel like this was a mystery, it is certainly suspenseful! There were some twists that were captivating as well. The romance felt a bit flat-perhaps less developed is the better way to say it. It just felt like “Oh, they are together, so it’s a romance now”. Now, as a HUGE romantic suspense fan, I love the really suspenseful plots but I think character development in a romance is critical. I wish there were more between Amy and Hunter to really make that connection seem more solid.
Danger in Numbers is perfect for fans of romantic suspense with lots of danger!
