Using her home territory of the US West, readers go along on what becomes more than a manhunt, but a mysterious corporation with far-reaching tentacles infiltrating the food we eat from the farm animals up. In Dose of Danger, McMahill explores what we hope is a fictional scenario in which the testing process of controlled substances used for human diet medications come under suspicion. The story opens with corporate researcher Grace Talbot on her way home to the family farm which she’s been informed has suffered a suspicious fire that killed long-time family farmhand Butch and severely injured her uncle, the man who raised her from childhood. Grace has an ulterior motive for rushing to the scene, however, as the reader soon learns of her own mistrust in the system she works for. She is met at the ranch by Deputy Logan Carlson, and the two of them struggle against the elements and desperate thugs to stay alive and salvage the research that holds the truth about project Grace is working on.
Well into the story we meet the FBI Agents Nash and Melonis who have been working the cases of mysterious deaths in various aspects of the food industry. When Grace’s colleagues start dropping like flies or running for their lives, Nash and Melonis wonder if this situation is another piece of the puzzle they are working on, and get involved. Grace must decide how much to trust Logan as the too-good-to-be-true deputy works out his own past issues in order to help keep her alive.
This is a stand-alone story, however, the FBI Agents carry on their work in the next book in which they attempt to get closer to the mysterious corporation trying to affect our eating habits. The suspense kept me coming back to read in every spare moment, and I bonded with the characters and their dilemmas. I expected a shoot out to be typical and was prepared to skim through it but ended up reading every word. Those who enjoy romantic suspense with several twists, large casts telling the story from several viewpoints, and with more than one side story going on will eat up this series.
Ms. McMahill fascinates the reader with this unusual mystery based on the diet product industry. At the same time she weaves a heartfelt story about the heroine’s life, she creates a romance between the heroine and the deputy. She also opens the reader’s eyes to the corruption and evil that greed can cause. I recommend this book for those who enjoy mystery and would like an inside look at the big business of diet products.
Grace Talbot is researching an animal nutrition supplement when she and her colleagues discover it could be the answer for human weight loss.
While working in Salt Lake, she houses her test subject, Charlotte the pig, at her uncle’s Wyoming ranch.
When she receives a call from Logan, a sheriff’s deputy, informing her Uncle Moss is in the hospital and his ranch hand is dead, Graces drives through a torrential snow storm to reach the ranch and the burned out remains of the barn storing much of their supplies and feed.
Logan meets her at the ranch to help sort out what’s happend, but they both realize this is more than an accident. While local authorities and the FBI piece together an even larger conspiracy in the pharmaceutical industry, it is evident Grace’s life is in danger. The couple forms a strong bond fighting the elements and their very existence. Do they dare to hope to live long enough to find a future?
This novel is hard to put down and one in a succession of books by Ms. McMahill that will keep you riveted to your seat. A Dose of Danger is a great summer read which I highly recommend.
