Book 2, Tag Raiders
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
New Australian romantic suspense follows Under the Hood, about a Western Australian drug gang, the teenagers they recruit, and the cop who wants to bring them down.
When Mark Johnson delves deeper into his investigation into the murder of Tiny Watts, and the involvement of a teenage gang with sleazy lawyer Gino Bennetti and his drug world ties, the last thing he expects is to be interviewing Gino’s widow, a woman in a world of trouble.
When her husband is shot and killed, it is both a relief and a disaster. Lily has her son to protect and secrets that run deeper than the scars she bears. Mark Johnson is the last person she wants uncovering those secrets, especially the truth about her son Luke’s involvement in Tiny Watts’s murder.
As the investigation continues and Lily’s wounds begin to heal, she finds the detective easy to trust and the friendship between them blossoms into more. But the secret Lily holds places everyone in very real danger. When it is finally revealed, Lily will lose everything: her son, the man she’s grown to love, her freedom and her life.
Romance and Suspense – two powerful words, one great story
5 Stars for Under Cover of Dark by Juanita Kees. I love romance and adding suspense is a winner for me. Juanita Kees captures both beautifully in this 3rd book in the Tag Raiders series (can easily be read alone, as can Fly Away Peta and Under the Hood). I adored the braveness found beneath the initial fragility of Under Cover of Dark’s heroine, Lily Bennetti. I found the opening scene quite powerful and it certainly hooked me. The woman’s been through a lot – and it just got worse. (And then gets even worse!) Enter hero, Detective Mark Johnson. If only this man wasn’t fictional… There are beautiful, romantic, tender scenes between Mark and Lily but Mark’s also got a job to do. The scenes between Mark and his off-sider are fabulous, with quite a bit of humorous content. I laughed more than once. But the main reason for giving this book 5 Stars is that I enjoyed the suspenseful journey and was carried along with a great plot and characters I was seriously cheering for. Excellent read.
