Still Life

Nice 2nd book. Nice carry over from book 1 in series, but I don't think reading book 1 is a necessity. Again I liked the interaction between the main characters. Little spoiler - I still am not too sure on my feelings about a novice criminal being able to tail a seasoned investigator without being noticed. If it was a full P.I. or ex-police officer it would be a turn off, but this guy is in a sense a nerd, not a field officer, even though she makes him out to be back up for FBI agent and ex-sniper guy....

Chapter and Verses

a copy of a document from Daniel Fuller Chapters and Verses -- Late Comers by Daniel P. Fuller Parchment or papyrus were difficult to come by as materials upon which to write, and thus in many ancient texts of both the Greek New Testament and Hebrew Old Testament there is the space-saving device of scriptio...

Nicely done book.

Spoiler -
I gave it lower than 4 stars only because of the type of people that were the criminals. I figured out about half way through that there were multiple criminals and that there was a stalker and a killer which were two different people. I didn't get that there were actually 3. That was fine, but at the end the 2nd stalker, which really was the 1st stalker, could ditch a seasoned-trained bodyguard (ex police) with ease, move through a huge church with security cameras. The killer could sneak up on a seasoned-trained bodyguard and actual police. This is unrealistic, I know it is a book, but if you go through the hassle of putting it in the real world, with real locations, with real police forces, it should be realistic criminals.
And they way that the bodyguards didn't do checks on things is amazing. They are suppose to be pretty good, but they don't even do vehicle sweeps. After someone tries to blow you up, you would think they are checking everything, but no. Even towards the end, they don't do a sweep of the boat even after there was an intruder on the property the night before. It was a real shame about these missteps because the rest of the book was great. But if you can't finish the book right then all the rest falls flat.

Nice book. It moved along at a nice pace. The story was well told with no unexpected mess-ups. They just kept going forward where the evidence lead them. Neat that the 2 main characters had worked with each other for a while but really didn't know each other. The mystery itself was well done, believable.

Next to the body is an injured dog, the dead man's motorcycle, and a drone armed with a laser capable of taking down a 747. Though FBI Special Agent Alex LeBlanc sees a clear-cut case of terrorism, his past has taught him to be suspicious of…

Very good book. I liked how she had it take weeks to come to a conclusion. I didn't figure out who did it, but since she felt it was necessary for the villian to give a complete rundown at the end to confess to everything, I don't think she wrote it having the reader figuring it out on their own.

But he'd rather go back to Iraq than face his next assignment: protection detail for federal judge Liz Michaels. His feelings toward Liz haven't warmed in the five years since she lost her husband--and Jake's best…

Characters are great again, but I am over  having a super criminal break from what they normally do so they can be caught.  There is no mystery here.  No suspense either.   You have a God's eye view of what is going on.   I think I am done reading her books, they so far have followed the same.  I wonder if she really wants to write romance novels but that field is too crowded.  Sorry thing is that she is really good at the romantic side, but the rest is blah.

Family Tree - Mom is Chief of Police.   Dad  is an attorney.
Brady  (Homicide)
Ruthie   (surgeon)
Derek  (undercover)        - (twins) -        Izzy    (detective 27yrs old)                          Chloe       (K9)

Nice cop story.  1st 15 pages had me worried.  A Lot of stuff thrown at you fast, setting up the lineage.   It settled down after that and was nice.   The love story part was understandable and behind the scenes.  The story line was good but the final ending didn't seem plausible.  First time criminal is the mastermind be a life time criminal master mind that hasn't been able to be caught even with the police looking at him for multiple crimes for a long time.
