COUNTDOWN TO CRISIS
A serial killer strikes every twelve hours. A vampire takes lives at random. At first glance, these tragic incidents seem unrelated. But Special Investigations Unit agents Sam Ryan and Gabriel Stern trace them both back to a military base known as Hopeworth. Is the murder spree part of a cover-up? And are the vampire killings less by chance and more methodical?
The investigation takes an eerie, personal turn when Sam discovers a connection between herself and the victims—and a clue to her own mysterious origins. With the violence escalating and the danger drawing closer to home, the stakes are raised and the mission changes from seeking justice to ensuring Sam and Gabriel’s own survival. And the one person who seems to hold all the answers—about Hopeworth, about Sam’s past—is a mystery man she isn’t sure she can trust. They share a psychic link through her dreams, and he once saved her life, but he may just be the greatest enemy humankind has ever known.
Generation 18 by Keri Arthur
Generation 18 is the second book in the Spook Squad series.
Recently put on special duty with a hostile partner, Gabriel Stern, Sam Ryan must uncover the mystery behind the serial deaths and the vampire attacks. Gabriel continues to block all Sam's attempts to work as a team, so Sam begins striking out on her own. The closer Sam comes to solve the mystery, the more she uncovers about her missing past.
Generation 18 starts out at a lively pace and continues to combine mystery, action and a smidgen of romance to keep the story highly entertaining. Arthur has an absorbing way of slowly unfolding the story but still keeping you in the dark. Locking me in for the long haul, I'm looking forward to Penumbra, when all is finally revealed.
I received this copy of Generation 18 from Random House Publishing Group - Bantam Dell in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication September 30, 2014.
