A bomb-strapped body
A rookie cop caught in the inferno

After barely escaping a deadly explosion, Officer Alma Majors has one clue to identify the victim and solve the case: a sliver of bone. But it’s going to take more than shrapnel to expose the culprit. Bomb expert Cree Gregson will risk everything to protect his neighbor from a killer determined to avoid exposure. Protecting his heart may prove more difficult…


High intensity intrigue! With the third book in the Defenders of Battle Mountain series we are quickly thrust into the middle of danger and the action is intense throughout. I wanted more relationship development and a bit more details in their back stories would have been ideal, but the impact of the mystery and danger was top notch.

Alma is sincere and kind and looking to turn over a new beginning for herself in a new town, but she doesn’t expect her first case with Battle Mountain PD to overtake her life so much.

Cree is adept and knowledgeable in ways that are in demand even though he’s only passing through Battle Mountain.

I recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a fast paced mystery filled with action, danger and a hint of romance.
