The title got me first. What a great title. Lots of story twists. You wanna feel like you're riding patrol and interviewing 'wits' and catching the 'victor?' Read this book. Brinna is a girl cop who kicks butt yet gets her 'I am a rock, I am an island' mentality seriously skewed in both her professional and private life. There's a creepy, CREEPY bad guy and a really cool cop dog. This book is very, very real.
What I enjoyed most about this book is that it felt like I was riding shotgun next to Brinna the whole way. The fact that the book was written by a former police officer adds authenticity to everything Brinna and Jack do. I think that¿s why it seemed more ¿real¿ than watching a police show on TV. Yet, I didn¿t feel overwhelmed or bored with details. And of course, I loved the dog, Hero! There were a few moments when I felt that the author rehashed things Brinna or Jack were feeling, and the references to her Kevlar heart felt one too many. But the story and characters were engaging enough that I constantly wanted to know what would happen next. The book is a pleasant surprise in Christian fiction.
