Dangerous Passage - A Review


Detective Avery North has a lot on her plate. She's a single mom raising a preteen daughter, she's trying to find a murderer of a Jane Doe, she's trying to solve her brother's murder as well, and she's pursuing a relationship with handsome Medical Examiner Jackson Bryant. Avery doesn't have time for cases that aren't simple. Especially when a second Jane Doe is murdered in a similar fashion to the first. The leads are suddenly going no where, and danger is escalating. Will she and her team be next?

I've never read anything that Lisa Harris has written. I'll be honest. This book took me a long time to get into. In some ways, it was very similar to other romantic suspense books I've read. It was also similar to some of the TV shows I've enjoyed (CSI, NCIS, NCIS LA to name a few). But I had a hard time really connecting to the main character. I would like to read other books in the series and see how she develops. I'd also like to see how the author develops as a writer. The overall mystery was a bit choppy and the clues didn't come together very easily. The last several pages, it really ended rather abruptly. Would I read others in this series and by this author? Yes. I do want to see how this author develops.

I received this book for free from Revell Publishers for the purpose of reviewing. I was not required to write a positive review. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Recommended to fans of romantic suspense, Irene Hannon, Dani Pettrey, Lynette Eason

Rating - 3.5 stars, which will be 3 stars on Amazon.

  1. Aw, sorry you didn't "love" this one, Dawn; it's one of the BEST suspense books I've read in a while. Such great work on the characters - something that is often forgotten in this genre. :)

    1. True there are times that this type of story is forgotten in this genre. I am interested in seeing how the author develops as an author.
