A smooth cruise around the Houston airport for volunteer ranger (and veterinarian) Stacy Broussard turns into a rough ride when she finds a dead man, a wounded dog, and a drone that is capable of shooting down a 747. The FBI is called in and Special Agent Alex LeBlanc writes it off as case of domestic terrorism. But this is just the first of several unfortunate incidents that appear to target Stacy. As her life runs off the rails, the FBI task force takes action, but it may be too late to save Stacy and her community.
VERDICT Crackling dialog and heart-stopping plot lines are the hallmarks of Mills's ("FBI Houston" series) thrillers, and this series launch won't disappoint her many fans. Dealing with issues of murder, domestic terrorism, and airport security, it eerily echoes current events. An excellent read-alike for admirers of Daniel Silva's The Black Widow, James Patterson's "Alex Cross" series, and Janice Cantore's "Cold Case Justice" series.
