The Trapped Girl
By Robert Dugoni
Surprising twists and turns.
This book will leave you guessing until the very end, who is missing, who died, and who killed who. In a cleverly written book, we find Detective Tracy Crosswhite in the fourth instalment of this series, discovering a women’s body caught in a crab pot.
The answers to who it is and who put it there are not what they seem. What follows is a twisted trail that leads in circles as questions are answered, or are they?
The book is undoubtedly well written, with a suspense that has you hanging out for more. The characters are well developed.
Even though this is the fourth book in the series, it can be read, as I did, as a stand alone.

Trilogy by J.B. Turner
This engaging series featuring Jon Reznick, a black-ops specialist who takes his orders from shadowy handlers, within the US government. He is a hired killer, who uncovers a plot to de-stabilise the US government.
After running from the FBI, he links with FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein, to prevent certain mayhem within the Washington and New York. He remains the only person who knows the true extent of the threat to national security—and has the stealth and determination to stop it.
Throughout the three books, the plot is fast paced, with plenty of action. The characters are well developed, as well as being believable.
This is an excellent series, which I read in two days. Extremely hard to put down.
