OMG, this book--crack it open and hang on for the ride! Pip and Hunt's story has many twists and turns, both with their relationship and in the suspense plot. I can't tell you how much time I spent telling various characters in the book, "No, it WASN'T a drug overdose! What's wrong with you people???"--honestly, I think I said it more than Pip did (especially since at one point, even Pip started wondering...) I gasped out loud while reading more than once. And OMG--what Ms. Anderson has happen to one of the characters toward the end--I may never recover. I had to re-read a few paragraphs just to make sure that yes, yes, that did really happen. Argh. Fortunately, she made up for it (kinda, sorta but not totally--but at least she kept me distracted) with some absolutely adorable long-distance(ish) courtship between Pip and Hunt. The last 20% of the book has things happening at breakneck speed--first with the drama of the suspense plot, then with Pip and Hunt--so much so that you almost feel as if you can't take a deep breath until you manage to reach the final page at last. Phew! A lot of people die in this one (it started to feel a little out of control), and at times the story got a little bogged down in some of the science-y anthrax parts of the plot, and yeah, Pip and Hunt go pretty fast from fairly antagonistic to something a lot closer, but still this was one heck of a read. I don't know why I haven't read more of this series' books, but you'd better believe they're all in my TBR now! Cold Blooded is the 9th book in the series, but really should work just fine as a standalone if you've been meaning to pick it up. Rating: 4 stars / A- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
About This Item
"Toni's books will make your heart pound and leave you breathless as she takes you on a roller coaster of thrills and danger along with the characters." Kaylea Cross - New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.
A journalist searching for the truth about her best friend’s death—and the FBI agent who needs her to stop.
Disgraced investigative journalist Pip West is devastated when she discovers her best friend’s body face-down in a tranquil lake. When cops and federal agents determine that her friend overdosed then drowned, Pip knows they’re mistaken and intends to prove it.
Special Agent Hunt Kincaid doesn’t trust journalists and has no patience for Pip’s delusions, especially since her meddling could reveal why the FBI is interested in her friend’s last days. The dead scientist worked at the cutting edge of vaccine research and might have a connection to a new, weaponized, vaccine-resistant anthrax strain that just hit the black market.
The more Pip digs, the closer she gets to both the sexy FBI agent, and to a bioweapons terrorist who’s more than capable of cold-bloodedly sacrificing anyone who gets in his way.
