Critical Vulnerability

Book 1, An Aroostine Higgins Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


In this smart, gripping thriller from USA Today bestselling author Melissa F. Miller, federal prosecutor Aroostine Higgins’ most critical vulnerability is exposed.

Government records, medical equipment, elevators, security alarms … they’re all remotely controlled and monitored by computerized industrial control systems. It’s convenient, efficient, and potentially deadly.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Aroostine Higgins has put her personal life on hold to join the Department of Justice’s elite Criminal Division. She’s about to prosecute a major bribery trial—one that could make or break her career.

But everything’s going wrong.

Her pretrial motion vanishes from the federal court’s electronic docketing system. Her apartment catches fire. Routine dental surgery turns into a near-death experience. By the time Aroostine realizes her string of bad luck is anything but random, the stakes are greater than the outcome of a high-profile court case.

Determined to win at any cost, a hidden enemy threatens to destroy her—and the only man she’s ever loved—unless she can stop him. Now, it’s personal.

What a page-turner!

I absolutely could not put this down! The characters were well-developed and the plot had enough twists and turns to keep it interesting. I especially liked the Native American aspect. It really made the story more interesting. I don’t often give five-star reviews, but this book definitely deserved it!

Enticingly Different

Great story line, very real characters, imaginative current decade plot; warm story book ending, or a new beginning? Promises some terrific sequels
