From Publishers Weekly

Sale's charming Toronto duo, Inspector John Sanders and photographer Harriet Jeffries, are headed to Taos, N. M., for a vacation when they are drawn into their latest case, following Pursued by Shadows. At the Santa Fe airport they meet 11-year-old twins who have just missed the bus they were scheduled to take to Taos. Harriet and John pile the twins into their rental car and follow the bus, which they don't realize has been hijacked, up a twisting road into the mountains where they and the kids also come under the hijackers' control. Meanwhile in Taos, Harriet's photojournalist friend Kate, alarmed when Harriet and John don't show up, contacts authorities. While Harriet and John labor to get safely off the mountain and avoid a throat-slashing villain, Kate visits the fortified compound of the crime's mastermind hoping to learn what has happened to her friends; she too must devise an escape when the man locks her up. In this departure from her signature police procedurals, usually focusing on John's work, Sale packs her usual full measure of suspense and intrigue while allowing Harriet to shine in her own light.

From School Library Journal

YA?Toronto Police Inspector John Sanders and his photographer companion Harriet Jeffries plan a romantic getaway, but instead encounter a bus-jacking and murders on the way from the Santa Fe airport to Taos. A second plot involving Harriet's friend Kate and Sergeant Rodriguez of the Taos police force gradually takes center stage midway through the book. This is a mystery with many twists and complications; nevertheless, it succeeds in diverting readers while the murders are solved. Strong characterization, romantic interests, and unusual settings should attract YAs.?Clodagh Lee, Pohick Regional Library, Burke, VA

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because of another series this author has written under the name of Caroline Roe: the Isaac of Gerona chronicles are wonderful - well written, witty, interesting full of fascinating characters and historical detail. This is a series that one wishes would go on forever. It is difficult to believe that "Shortcut" was written by the same person.
