Publisher’s Description: Somewhere in the Washington, D.C. area, a woman lies helpless in a box. Barely breathing. Buried alive. In Quantico, the FBI receives a coded message from the woman’s abductor. He wants to play a game: decipher the clues, save the girl. The FBI’s top cryptanalysts crack the code and Special Agent Meg Jennings and her K-9 partner, Hawk, scramble to the scene of the crime—too late. But the killer’s game is far from over . . .

Another message, another victim. The deadly pattern is repeated—again and again. As the body count mounts, Meg decides to break protocol and bring in her brilliant sister, Cara, a genius at word games, to decipher the kidnapper’s twisted clues. Meg knows she’s risking her career to do it, but she’s determined not to let one more person die under her and Hawk’s watch. If the plan fails, it could bite them in the end. And if it leads to the killer, it could bury them forever . . .

Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*


Nervous Nellie says…

This story is ENTIRELY different than the first book.  This isn’t a cookie cutter mystery series, for sure!  The premise is very disturbing as the killer is asphyxiates his victims in a myriad of different ways but each victim has a remarkable resemblance to Meg.  If I remember correctly, only one of several victims die thanks to Meg’s sister and Clay McCord.  Meg’s sister Kara is incredible with puzzles and all the notes the killer leaves are encrypted PLUS McCord is a whiz at civil war history.  Those two work together amazingly well so therein starts the romance.  Todd Webb makes his move on Meg, but all of this romance is not the center of the book.    The center of these books (that I’ve discovered so far) deal with the mystery and the chase of the killer.  This book did not disappoint me in the least as it was the same fast paced and a great storyline.

Again, there was no sex, some foul language, a lot of close calls of death and a crazy twist at the end for the killer.  I thought I had it figured out, but in the end I was close but sadly no cigar for me.  Oh, and those of you who are like me and HATE cliffhangers?  There is none.  So far, each book finishes the case but the character building keeps evolving.  Also, the narrator Angela Dawe was incredible as in the first book.

Lone Wolf by Sara Driscoll

I picked up this book on Kindle Unlimited quite awhile ago.  Surely can’t figure out why I waited so long to read it!

Publisher’s Description: Meg and Hawk are part of the FBI’s elite K-9 unit. Hawk can sniff out bodies anywhere—living or dead. When a bomb rips apart a government building in Washington D.C., it takes all of the team’s extensive search-and-rescue training to locate and save the workers and visitors buried beneath the rubble.

But even as the duo are hailed as heroes, a bomber remains at large, striking terror in a widening spiral of unpredictability. As more bombs are detonated and the body count escalates, Meg and Hawk are assigned to a task force dedicated to stopping the unseen killer. It will come down to a battle of wits and survival skills between Meg, Hawk, and the bomber they’re tracking to rescue a nation from the brink of chaos.

Nervous Nellie says…

I love animals and it just so happens on my summer reading bingo card, one of the squares is to read a book with an animal in it.  I figured I’d start the book and if I didn’t like it, I wasn’t out anything.  Oh, MAN!  I would have spent full price for this book!  It was a page turner and I loved it!

Meg is a K-9 handler for the FBI and Hawk is a black lab rescue that she’s taught search and rescue.  I gotta tell ya that I’d LOVE to have that training skill.  Anyway, this story is about a homegrown terrorist bombing public buildings.  Meg meets Todd Web and Clay McCord.  Clay McCord is instrumental in helping to solve the case even though tensions are high with him being a reporter for the Washington Post.

The story was sad as much as satisfying in the end.  The end didn’t change all the people who died, but at least the guy got caught and Hawk took a bite out of him.  There was no sex, there is some foul language and a lot of death, but the bright light shown on those who survived.

It was a great book – very mystery/thriller but not as thriller-ish as a psychological thriller (those books are INTENSE).  Oh and the narrator?  Angela Dawe was magnificent!  I sunk so far into the story with her narrating, I didn’t even notice her narrating – that’s how good she was!

AuthorJenn Stark
SeriesWilde Justice #7
Release date:  June 23, 2021
Description“Swear not by the Moon, the inconstant Moon…”

Night is falling on the world of the Arcana Council, and the darkest corners of the psychic community are stirring, eager for war no matter the cost.

In a last-ditch effort to maintain the balance of magic, Justice Sara Wilde launches an all-out search for the Moon, one of the Council’s most powerful missing members. With a team that includes the darkly formidable Magician, the tech-savant Fool and the incomparable Nikki Dawes…Sara likes her odds for finding her quarry in time.

Unfortunately, she’s not alone in the hunt.

A cry for help from the depths of South America triggers Sara’s oldest enemies, the cutthroat artifact hunters of the arcane black market. In a race to find the deeply secretive, elusive Moon, the winner is promised power beyond their wildest imagination. Are these claims pure lies and moonlit fantasy? Or a sign that when the Moon is in play, nothing is ever as it seems?

The truth is deadlier than anyone expects.

Even your shadow will betray you when you hunt The Untamed Moon.
