Triumph by Janet Dailey (Bannon Brothers,Book 3) (352 Pages)

Description: Deke Bannon is rugged and powerful and just as dangerous as his older brothers RJ and Linc. But an ambitious TV anchor tracking an explosive story may be more than his match…

Deke Bannon, federal criminal investigator, risks his life just about every damn day—but that doesn’t mean he’ll let Kelly Johns do the same. A deadly international gang has targeted the gorgeous news anchor for knowing too much and trying to find out more. To protect Kelly, Deke will have to keep her close—no matter how hard she fights him.

Good luck with that. Kelly’s every instinct tells her she’s stumbled across the story of her career. But there’s a catch. Without Deke, she can’t infiltrate the dark underworld operating beyond the reach of the law. With him, she’s in a whole other kind of danger. On the case, Deke Bannon is a force of nature—unpredictable, unstoppable, and always one step ahead of her. Except when he takes her in his arms—and the world stands still for both of them…


 Review: This is the 3rd book in the Bannon Brothers Trilogy. It was a great read I really enjoyed it. Love the way the trilogy ended. 5 Stars

The Concrete Blonde by Michael Connelly (Harry Bosch, Book 3) (484 Pages)

Description: The Dollmaker was the name of the serial killer who had stalked Los Angeles ruthlessly, leaving grisly calling cards on the faces of his female victims. Now with a single faultless shot, Detective Harry Bosch thinks he has ended the city's nightmare. But the dead man's widow is suing Harry and the LAPD for killing the wrong man-- an accusation that rings terrifyingly true when a new victim is discovered with the Dollmaker's macabre signature. So for the second time, Harry must hunt down a death-dealer who is very much alive, before he strikes again. It's a blood-tracked quest that will take Harry from the hard edges of the L.A. night to the last place he ever wanted to go-- the darkness of his own heart.

Review: This was a good book. Loved the story even though I figured some of it out before the end. 4 Stars

The Body Farm by Patricia Cornwell (Kay Scarpetta, Book 5) (387 Pages)

Description: Little Emily Steiner left a church meeting late one afternoon and strolled toward home along a lakeside path; a week later, her nude body was discovered, bound in blaze-orange duct tape. Called by the North Carolina authorities, forensic pathologist Kay Scarpetta recognizes similarities to the gruesome work of a serial killer who has long eluded the FBI. But as she tries to make sense of the evidence, she is left with questions that lead her to the Body Farm, a little-known research facility in Tennessee where, with the help of some grisly experiments, she might discover the answer.
It is Scarpetta alone who can interpret the forensic hieroglyphics that eventually reveal a solution to the case as staggering as it is horrifying. But she must also endeavor to help her niece, Lucy, who is embroiled in controversy at Quantico. And Scarpetta, too, is vulnerable, as she opens herself to the first physical and emotional bond she has felt in far too long a time.

Review: This was a good read even though I figured out who the killer was halfway through. I still enjoyed it. 4 Stars

Four Blind Mice by James Patterson (Alex Cross, Book 8) (387 Pages)

Description: Detective Alex Cross is planning to resign from the Washington, D.C., police force, and he's got a lot on his mind: he's eager to be a more involved parent, worried that he's asking too much of his ailing grandmother, hoping to see where his relationship with San Francisco homicide cop Jamilla Hughes is headed, and considering a job offer from the FBI. The last thing he needs in his life is another complication. But when his close friend and partner John Sampson asks for help, Alex can't refuse -- even though that means taking on the whole U.S. Army. A friend of Sampson's from his days in Vietnam has been arrested for a brutal multiple murder on a military base, and the evidence against him is overwhelming. Sampson believes his friend was framed -- but if he and Cross can't prove it soon, despite military obstructions, the wrong man will be sent to the gas chamber. Unfortunately, while Cross and Sampson quickly become certain that the frame they're investigating is only the tip of an iceberg of deceit and death, the hard evidence they need proves maddeningly elusive. The danger grows as they begin to draw closer to the real killers (a frighteningly skilled team of military assassins known only as the Three Blind Mice) and the shadowy, deadly mastermind who's been calling the shots. 

Review: This book was alright I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either. There was some things I liked about it and some things I didn't. 3 Stars

The Mystery Woman by Amanda Quick (Ladies Of Lantern Street, Book 2) (357 Pages)

Description:Under the plain gray skirts of Miss Beatrice Lockwood's gown, a pistol waits at the ready. For Beatrice is a paid companion on a secret mission - and with a secret past - and she must be prepared to fight for her life at any moment. Yet she is thrown oddly off guard by the fierce-looking man who joins her in foiling a crime outside a fancy ball - and then disappears into the shadows, leaving only his card. His name is Joshua Gage, and he claims to know Beatrice's employers. Beyond that, he is an enigma with a hypnotically calm voice and an ebony-and-steel cane. . . . Joshua, who carries out clandestine investigations for the Crown, is equally intrigued. He has a personal interest in Miss Lockwood, a suspected thief and murderer, not to mention a fraudster who claims to have psychical powers. The quest to discover her whereabouts has pulled him away from his mournful impulses to hurl himself into the sea - and engaged his curiosity about the real Beatrice Lockwood, whose spirit, he suspects, is not as delicate as her face and figure. He does know one thing, though: This flame-haired beauty was present the night Roland Fleming died at the Academy of the Occult. Guilty or not, she is his guide to a trail of blood and blackmail, mesmerism and madness - a path that will lead both of them into the clutches of a killer who calls himself the Bone Man. . . .

 Review:I really enjoyed this book is was a great paranormal historical mystery and the characters were great. 5 Stars
