Book Description

Her narrow escape from blue-eyed assassin Tom Booker has made former data analyst Dani Britton question all of her choices—like trusting “good guys” who carry badges. On the run and haunted by the government-sanctioned massacre of her coworkers, Dani finally settles in remote Redemption Key, Florida, at a bar where strong drinks and shady deals are the norm.

The bar owner, a local operator with a past of his own, gives Dani a job, no questions asked, and soon Dani’s ability to “read” the sketchy characters doing business at the bar proves invaluable. The libations flow, and the Key’s laid-back vibe and warm waters start doing their therapeutic work. But as the mercury rises, a twisted deal starts to go down—threatening to take Dani with it. Like sharks smelling blood, players on both sides of the law circle for the kill. And when charming apex predator Booker joins the frenzy, he may turn out to be the only one on Dani's side.

Redling still lives and writes in West Virginia, simultaneously pursuing obsessions with locavore dining, sustainable gardening, and international travel.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Want and I Hate June 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When S.G. Redling wrote “The Widow File,” Amazon offered it in advance of publication through their Kindle First program. The blurb sounded good, far better than the other three offered, in fact, so I chose it, paying well under the price at which it would soon be offered.

That book was absolutely riveting. I was totally taken in by both the plot and the characterizations of Dani Britton, Choo-Choo Charbaneaux and Tom Booker. I put a five-star review out on all my retail venues and on my blog. I have even referred to Redling’s excellent characterization of the hired assassin, Tom Booker, in other reviews, using it as a comparison to the villain in the book that was being reviewed.

When I received notice that Redling was publishing a sequel to “The Widow File,” I put it on my to-purchase list and did so the very day it was first offered. And I gladly paid full price for it. In the middle of another book at the time, I quickly finished it and jumped immediately to “Redemption Key.” Not often do I push a newly offered book to the top of my TBR list, but the chance to read more about Britton and Booker was just too intriguing and enticing.

And I was not disappointed – not even close. It was all I could do to close the iPad long enough to handle the required chores and appointments of my daily life. In less than 24 hours it was done and what a ride it was!

First off, even though Redling does a good job of summarizing Dani’s backstory and some of the major events from “The Widow File,” there is no way I’d consider “Redemption Key” as a standalone novel. No matter how good Redling’s synopsis is, there is no true way to understand just how Dani and Choo-Choo suffered at the hands of Tom Booker without reading that first book.

Interesting plot. Wish publishers had put on the cover that this was the sequel to the other "Dani" story ( Widows File). Would have read IT first! Now that story is ruined since this book tells how it ends.

This is a fast moving, exciting story that follows the lead character from an earlier book into yet another dangerous situation. I found my self cheering for the heroine and her soul mate from the initial book. Clever writing and a well paced plot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hiding in Plain Sight in Sweltering Florida July 20, 2014
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
In S.G. Redling's Redemption Key the suspense comes mainly from dread, the fear of what will happen, but has not happened yet.

I have not read the previous novel The Widow File. Apparently, in that novel the main character of Redemption key, Dani Britton, is one of the few survivors of a US data mining organization that is almost completely wiped out by elements of the United States government. She is almost killed by a hired assassin, but she manages to do him serious physical harm in the process.

After a long recuperation in the hospital and many hours of interrogation, she is duped by the side of the road, still alive. Dani realizes that there is no way to hide from the United States government in the long run (even Osama Bin Laden found this out). So she hides in plain sight, in Redemption Key in the Florida Keys, paying taxes under her own name.

Dani was told that the assassin that tried to killer her, Tom Booker, is still alive. She knows that he may come for her one day, but realizing that she can't hide she has a somewhat fatalistic attitude. Although her fatalism includes hard physical training and an affinity for knives and shanks around her living space.

The place Dani comes to rest is Jinky's Inlet Fishing Camp, which is a few docs and a bar/restaurant owned by Owen Randolph. Owen has his own dark past of drugs. While he has managed to leave the substances behind, some of the old life lingers. He's still the impresario of shady deals, which get shadier as time goes on.

Most of the suspense comes from the players from Dani's past and Owen's shady present arriving at Jinky's Inlet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down June 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the second in a set of books about Dani Britton. It is fast paced action packed and a lot of fun. I read the first book, The Widow File, and immediately put in my pre-order for this follow-up. I fell in love with the characters and couldn't wait to read more about their mesmerizing story.

The writing is superb and the characters engaging. The scenery is so real I could smell the salt air and feel the hot breeze sweeping across the dock. I'm one of those people who will read anything that is free, but rarely buy the rest in a series because I don't that the writing is worth my money. In this case The Widow File had me hooked (got it while it was free for kindle) and Redemption Key had me reaching for my wallet. I liked S.G. Redling's writing so much I'll probably buy her other books. That is the highest compliment I can give an author.

Thanks Ms. Redling for a great story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sequel June 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this was a very suspenseful follow up to The Widow File. I love all the characters and love the way this author writes with such great imagery. I hope there will a next one in the series that will allow some type of resolution with Tom and Dani. He is not normally the type of character I like but there is something about him that draws you to him. I am also glad to see Dani back with her now best friend Choo Choo. Thank you Ms. Redling for writing such entertaining books.

More About the Author

After a ridiculously normal childhood spent fighting with my siblings in the woods of West Virginia, I graduated from Georgetown University with an English degree. To my parents' chagrin, I parlayed that fine education into a series of jobs including waitress, monument tour guide, and sheepskin packer before settling in as a morning radio host in Huntington, West Virginia.

I tend to stroll blithely into strange situations and take adolescent pride in surviving them. Some of my favorites: jumping from an airplane (recommended), jumping from a moving train in Hungary (not recommended), getting lost in the Spice Bazaar in Istanbul, and being locked in a dining car on a midnight train through the Carpathians; and winning a heated argument over the schematics of the Battlestar Galactica.

These days, I spend a lot of time in pajamas and--for reasons too complicated to explain--I am no longer shocked to find wildlife in my house. For me, everything is a story and the story is everything. Getting to tell my stories? Greatest thing ever.
