Far Gone

Laura Griffin

To save her only brother, Andrea Finch must face down a criminal mastermind, the FBI, and her own demons in this thrilling novel from the author of the bestselling Tracers series.

Police detective Andrea Finch is a rising star in her department until a split-second decision derails her career. Disgraced and disillusioned, she’s on leave from her job when she gets an urgent call from her younger brother. She’d prefer to ignore his latest plea for cash, but this time instinct tells her something is very wrong. Andrea’s search for answers takes her to a dusty Texas border town where danger lurks in plain sight and nothing is quite what it seems.

FBI agent Jon North is working undercover in west Texas investigating an unsolved murder that may be linked to a broader plot. But when the evidence points to Andrea’s brother, Jon finds that persuading the stubborn cop to help will be harder than cracking his toughest case.

Andrea must find a way to do what’s right while protecting her only sibling. As the clock ticks down on a deadly plot, Andrea and Jon race to confront a heartless killer who will stop at nothing to deliver a final, terrifying message(from Edelweiss & Netgalley)

My Thoughts

I like both of the main characters, Andrea Finch and Jon North. Andrea is loyal to her brother and is determined to find out the truth regarding his involvement with a home grown terrorist group. Jon wants to help her, but also has a job to do trying to prevent another attack on American soil. They are both strong willed and frequently butt heads. It is their strength and weakness that also cause them to be attracted to each other.

This was excellent! Fast paced and went right down to the wire with suspense. Just enough romance to make the relationship seem real and be a good fit with the rest of the story line. Ms. Griffin sure knows how to hold the readers attention.
