Men of Valor 1
By Irene Hannon
They didn't mean for it to happen, but it did and now someone will do anything to make sure this secret stays buried forever.
Lisa Grant has left the big city stress of the Chicago PD behind for Carson, Missouri. But when an excavation site unearths human remains the new Chief of Police is about to have her job stress ratchet up.
When the Carson PD puts in a call to County for assistance Mac McGregor is sent to assist. After promptly putting his foot in his mouth he actually manages to make a better impression.
This case will test both their skills and resolve to find the truth.
I really love the prologue and how it doesn't reveal the identity of the mastermind behind everything. In fact one is several chapters into the book before said identity is revealed. And it is even further into the book before one learns the whole truth of what happened that night.
If you've read Irene Hannon in the past you won't be disappointed in this latest offering from her. Mystery, romance and a good dose of suspense all wrapped up between an intriguing cover.
I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher Revell through their blogger program in exchange for my honest review.

They both wanted quieter, safer lives.
But crime never sleeps . . .
and killers keep killing.

But the discovery of a human skeleton by a construction crew at the edge of town taxes the resources of her department. A call for assistance brings detective Mac McGregor, an ex-Navy SEAL, to her doorstep. As they work to solve the mystery behind the unmarked grave, danger begins to shadow them. Someone doesn't want this dead person telling any tales--and will stop at nothing to make certain a life-shattering secret stays buried.
