Then you'll like the McAllister series, and Terminal 9 is no exception. Gritty, realistic and often quite descriptive, this book explores the death of an old man which turns out not be just an accident. The story makes you feel as if you are part of the case as Mac and Dana uncover clues, interview suspects and discover body parts along the way. Mac and Dana make a good team, with none of the police detective sterotypes. They both allow each other to take charge and do thing his or her own way. They have a good relationship with a hint of romance but not so much to take away from the main story. *Note this is not a romance story so as not to scare off male reader.* I've enjoyed Patricia Rushford since reading her Jennie McGrady series and this book continues the enjoyment. And I've just discovered that my library has order book 4 of the series!
I like the writers approach and everything seems pretty 'real' but it seemed like to me it was about 100 pages longer than it needed to be -- maybe a little to many mundane details. I got the definite impression that the writers wanted a longer book for whatever reason. This is my first by these two authors and I am undecided if I should try another one. I would like to hear comments pro and con from some other of their readers??
I am a big fan of the McAllister Files series. I especially love this one, not only because it is a great book, but because it takes place where I live! The authors decriptions of specific places around Oregon are dead on accurate. I also like the fact that this book is by christian authors, yet it does not cut any corners on action or intensity.
