Reese Summers was a small town reporter, that is, until her writing talents were noticed by a Savannah editor. She was quickly offered a job at the Savannah Daily as an investigative reporter. It wasn’t long before she was assigned to start snooping around the Drakos shipping company.
Viktor Drakos had long been at odds with the newspaper and its editor over his company’s safety record and wasn’t happy with her probing into his business. Now, Reese was getting close to discovering a secret that the shipping magnate didn’t want to come to light. In order to prevent her from uncovering his secret, he offered her twice her news salary to become his company’s Public Affairs Officer. Shortly after accepting his offer, she begins to learn that the company is entangled in an international conspiracy and that knowledge threatens to place her life in jeopardy.
“Great summer read!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By L. Weiss
The storyline was obviously well constructed and kept my interest from beginning to end. The characters were believable and made you care about them, except the ones you were supposed to hate. The story paced itself nicely and could almost be considered cozy–until all hell broke loose. The ending contained some twists I didn’t see coming and turned suspenseful. I liked the chief of police and Scratch. Scratch deserved a bigger role. It’s difficult to give a detailed review without giving away too much of the plot. I was able to read the entire full-length novel in one afternoon, as it kept my interest. The story contained some mild sexuality and a touch of violence but certainly nothing hardcore. Definitely appropriate for most readers, especially those who like a solid storyline.
