My next read was Shane Gericke's (pronounced YERKEY) CUT TO THE BONE (Pinnacle Books, c2007, ISBN 978-0-7860-1814-7).
The second in a series after BLOWN AWAY, Emily Thompson (detective) and Marty Benedetti (detective commander) are back in Naperville, Illinois to face a new bad guy (the Executioner) along with their Chief Hercules Branch. This was a quick and very enjoyable read. BLOWN AWAY blew me away...this book cut me to the bone. What's next...heart attack bugaloo? I'll start loading up on my antioxidants early.
The book begins:
The blue velvet curtain drew back like it was movie night, allowing Johnny Sanders to stare through the bullet-proof window.
