As a lieutenant in an elite tactical team charged with maintaining peace and protecting the law abiding inhabitants of a near-future North America, Gina Santiago’s job is often life-threatening. She has a reputation for wading through the blood of her perps. It has earned her the irritating nickname Red for the blood that often covers her boots. The recent murder of a young woman near a decaying forest doesn’t seem as cut and dried as her superiors would like to believe.
On her own, without her team to back her up, Gina heads to the isolated small town near the border where her nose tells her something is funky about the people. They know something but aren’t willing to talk to an outsider. Even the hunky sheriff Morgan Hunter is strangely tight-lipped. The closer she comes to discovering the town’s secrets, their connection to murder – and to her – the closer she comes to the biggest secret of all. And a killer’s watching every move she makes.
Jordan Summers spectacularly debuts Red, the first book in her new urban fantasy series with engaging style that inspires faithful devotion. Gina’s intriguing transformation from diehard bigot to fringe is painful to watch yet heartening in its expression of the benefits of change. I loved the strong characters, unique plot and new interesting world to dive into and I am sure you will too.
