Bombshell (Book 4)
While Beth relishes in her career as an FBI forensic botanist, Warren is bored with the endless round of meetings his management role requires. He wants to be hands-on with investigation, but that’s not something an executive assistant director with the FBI does.
An innocent man dies after he is shot in a bank robbery gone wrong. The thieves think they got away with their crime, but a crucial piece of evidence is left behind.
Warren’s friend Sam sees an opportunity and offers him a job with his private investigation agency. The temptation is almost too great to resist, but when Beth is given a life-changing diagnosis during a doctor’s visit, it seems Warren must put his own desires aside to focus on his wife.
The investigation takes a turn when the arrested robber is killed in a prison bashing while awaiting trial. Then a second suspect in the robbery is killed by a bomb. And then a third. Is a vigilante serial killer on the loose, or is a grieving family member seeking revenge?
And who is next on the bomber’s list?
