Cold Dead Night

Cold Dead Night
Brand of Justice #1
By Lisa Phillips

Kenna Banbury never wanted to get caught up in any case in Salt Lake City; when she gets a desperate plea for help, she can't say no. But she is soon caught up in a killer's deadly game, a game that brings back everything she lost two years prior. 

Two years ago, Kenna's life went wrong, and it drove her out of her job with the FBI. But a killer has drawn her back, and she is forced to work with FBI Special Agent Oliver Jaxton. But she can't help wondering just whose side Special Agent Jaxton is on.

Kenna's past has put God on the back burner. After all, He let everything be taken, and now someone wants to do so again. With evidence pointing to Kenna, she has to stay as far off the FBI's radar as possible.

Now Cold Dead Night has some moments of violence that are a touch disturbing. The story overall is good - there is plenty of suspense, and there are secrets that need to be revealed. This is a psychological thriller that you'll want to keep reading with each chapter. If you are a fan of romantic suspense, don't look for it in this book which is the first in a new series. Kenna is hurting from what happened two years ago. and it would be a disservice to her character in this book to pursue a romance. I recommend it with a caution to be aware that there is off-scene violence that one reads the results of.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion. All thoughts expressed are my own.
