Free Fall

Nancy Mehl. Bethany House, $15.99 trade paper (352p) ISBN 978-0-7642-3765-2

In the thrilling third installment of Nancy Mehl’s Quantico Files series (after Dead Fall), special agents Logan Hart and Alex Donovan seek out the kidnapper of Tracy Mendenhall, a widowed nurse with two small children. Hart and Donovan will do whatever it takes to find Tracy, but they have scant evidence to go on and their personal lives begin to interfere with the investigation. Hart is in love with Donovan, but she’s still working through the trauma of escaping from a psychopath and isn’t ready to get into a relationship. Though Donovan believes God saved her, she struggles to reconcile her ordeal with her faith. Then Hart and Donovan realize the case might be more harrowing than anyone imagined when they discover that four other women matching Tracy’s description have recently gone missing in the same county. The kidnapper’s identity and motive are anyone’s guess, and the relentless pace will keep readers glued to their seats through the faith-affirming, heart-stopping conclusion. This pulse-pounding romantic thriller is a wild ride. Agent: Steve Laube, Steve Laube Agency. (June)
