Was the explosion that took the lives of Sarah Russell's parents an act of murder? Her teenage daughter thinks so and is determined to seek answers in the sleepy small town where Sarah grew up. Sarah fears the teen will uncover a secret she's not ready to share: everyone, including Sarah's daughter, believes the girl is Sarah's kid sister. Even the child's father doesn't know the truth. But as Sarah reunites with Nick Tyler to look into the mysterious deaths, she knows she'll have to tell him—and their daughter—the truth. Yet someone wants to ensure that no one uncovers any long-buried secrets.
Unique for this line, Collateral Damage is more mystery than suspense, but no less intriguing. The threat is there, in the background but doesn't materialize until a third of the way into the book. But there's a sinister, waiting-for-the-other-shoe-to-drop vibe all the way through. Complicated clues and a multitude of suspects make the complex mystery a challenge to solve and I have to admit that Alexander got the better of me. Love a suspense that keeps me guessing right to the very end.
