In the beginning there was man, add a woman to the scenario, you end up with a riveting adventure dripping with sexual tension between the two lead characters. It's the Adam and Eve of detective mysteries sure to satisfy both female and male readers alike. The hero, Dylan Drake, is cut from a true American hero in every sense of the word. He¿s strong, courageous, and the envy of every man whose lady turns an eye when he walks in a room with his Marlboro good looks. Della Bishop, the female rookie detective, hardheaded and spoiled to the core by her father, a cop who raised her alone, that she¿s out to prove to them and Dylan Drake that she can be the best detective on the force going against her families wishes. The two detectives are thrown together when she makes detective against Dylan Drake's wishes. She¿s young, inexperienced, and her father was the Chief of Police. She's the devil¿s advocate, always taunting him with her female presence. Playing with fire and risking her job, she vowed she¿d chase him till he gave into her desires to have him. A shooting sets the stage for a thrilling case with a cast of characters that earn your sympathy and respect. Even the shooter found a place in my heart. The story unravels a myriad of subplots that take the detectives out of their normal small town investigation and readies the canvas for a taste of international intrigue. I found myself stumped to the end as I worked the case with the detectives asking myself who could have shot Jennica James and why? Curiosity kept me turning the pages. A good read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A buddy of mine, we were in the Navy at the time, turned me onto this book. We were at sea. The author had asked if he wanted to read her manuscript and give her some input. After reading it, he could not believe the author could not find an agent or a publisher to give her and the manuscript a shot. He thought it was as good as any other top 10 out there. His interest led him to share it with a few other of us sailors on board. We all took our turns reading it. We were all were excited when he told us it had been published. I'd like to meet the author someday. It surprised me. I did not think it was the type of story I would enjoy reading. The plot kept me in suspense and it seemed believable enough. The characters seemed to walk off the page and into our daily conversations within our group. The writing shows talent that I think shines through in every page. Each chapter kept me turning pages. I'm glad someone cracked open the door so she could share her talent at storytelling to a few strangers that were in need of a good diversion to offset our daily lives at sea while being away from our families and friends. It was a great escape.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I enjoyed the adventurous story set in Montana. The lead characters, two detectives, a male and a female, drove the plot at a rapid pace keeping me guessing throughout the story. They were put into some rather peculiar, but interesting situations. One in particular, the tent in the Montana wilderness. I felt as if I were actually there. The characters interactions with each other kept me interested in the resolution of the story, and now, the upcoming sequel. They both were vibrant and exciting to meet and to get to know as they raced ahead on their adventure as they worked to solve the unusual case. I felt their tension, their inner conflicts, as they struggled with the cards dealt to them in what turned out to be an intriquing mystery. The situations were amusing, the end powerful. I finished it in record time. I'm looking forward to Tower of Tears.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Love, Murder, the Militia, and nano-technology add up to International Intrigue in the mountain wilderness of Montana. Dawn knows what & where she writes about. If Clancy escaped the Beltway, he might just read alot like Chretien!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
