Everything about Reynolds (Pack) Packer is dusty and worn: the Town Car he drives to earn a living, the suit he wears, the dump he lives in. Well, actually the dump is downright dirty. Preparing to grill some burgers for dinner, he steps out onto his deck and finds himself staring into the barrel of a gun held by a kid. He’s shocked when finds out the kid is Vida, the twenty-year old daughter he hasn’t seen in fifteen years. Vida, sporting a fresh scar running from hairline to chin and a limp, was wounded, and her roommate was killed, on patrol in Iraq. Because of what she thinks she saw while lying there wounded, she believes someone is trying to kill her. She’s running, gone AWOL, and she needs Pack’s help. He’s a vet and she asks him to find someone at the VA hospital. He blows her off. When he wakes up, he feels guilty and goes to talk to his only friend, his cousin Mitch, a retired state trooper who now prefers to be called Millie. After hearing Vida’s story, Mitch tells Pack he owes it to his daughter to help her, so go find her and do what she wants. That advice sets Pack and Mitch on a race to find Vida, before the killer gets to her. Pomeroy has created memorable, real-life characters, put them in a nicely drawn upstate New York setting, and set them on a dangerous path, racing against time to identify the man determined to kill Vida. NO SAFE GROUND pulled me in from the first page and didn’t let go until the last. Pomeroy I highly recommend NO SAFE GROUND.
Purchased this book with anticipation with meeting the author Julia Pomeroy at an event. I did not have opprotunity to read it before the event. I found the author, Julia Pomeroy to be very patronizing and condecsending and very unpleasant. Giving her the benefit of the doubt I did read it and found it very amateurish, slow and boring. So sorry I wasted the money. With two strikes against her I don't think I will give her another shot. Many very pleasant authors out there to enjoy.
