At the start of bestseller Johansen and son’s satisfying sixth novel featuring FBI investigator Kendra Michaels (after 2017’s Look Behind You), Elena Meyer, a paralegal for a Connecticut law firm, is found dead just a few blocks from Kendra’s condo in San Diego, Calif. In her possession is an envelope with Kendra’s name on it. Kendra, who didn’t know the woman, has no idea why her name would have been on the envelope containing a USB memory stick with a video of a wedding reception. As Kendra and Adam Lynch, a former FBI agent turned freelancer, start looking into the connection between Elena and the video, the bride from the video goes missing. The romantic tension heats up between Kendra and Adam as the body count rises. Eventually, Kendra and her team get on the track of a complex conspiracy. Magnetic characters and a twisty, suspenseful plot ensure that readers will eagerly anticipate the next installment. [em]Agent: Andrea Cirillo, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (July) [/em]
