The Colonel's Daughter



Under siege.

A ruthless killer is targeting the families of soldiers in a U.S. Army colonel's brigade. Special agent Jamison Steele, of the Criminal Investigation Division, vows to stop him -- because this time, Jamison's heart is involved. The colonel's daughter, the woman who loved and left Jamison without a word, came face-to-face with the murderer. Protecting Michele Logan means constant surveillance. And solving the mystery of the serial killer's motive requires asking Michele the questions she least wants to answer. Questions that may lead them both into a deadly trap.

My Review:

This one is a heart-stopper. Giusti cranks up the tension to an almost unbearable pitch from the very first scene. I was swept away in a nano-second and remained buffeted by fear and stress for the duration. :-)

And the author not only stumped me -- she bamboozled me into thinking the killer was who he wasn't! I love a suspense that keeps up to the very last page! And I particularly adore it when the romance takes equal billing with the suspense. That's hard to achieve, but Giusti did a superb job. Tension of the romantic kind crackles from Jamison's and Michele's first encounter. The connection from their past is obviously still there no matter how hard both try to fight it.

This one is a read-in-one-sitting suspense that you won't want to miss!

  4. Jillian, you're so right! That's why it's so hard to put down.

    What a coincidence -- two books with the same title out at the same time? I guess it can happen! Debby's is a one of a kind though for certain sure!

    Good luck you two!
