The text messages tell Sarah to do certain things that her dead sister "sees" might happen if Sarah doesn't intervene. But Sarah is never told what will happen. She just knows that if her sister tells her to take a cab and then beat up the cab driver so he ends up in a hospital, then she must do it, ,because if she doesn't, someone is going to either die or be tortured or be murdered. In the course of fulfilling one of these messages, Sarah runs across another man who also receives messages from his murdered little daughter. Like Sarah's sister, the little girl tells her father that certain bad things will happen if he doesn't intervene.
Well, of course this can't happen in real life, but we must suspend our belief systems sometimes when we read. I found it fairly easy to do this. Once you can put yourself into the realm of unbelievability, then you can accept other outlandish things which Sarah seems to accomplish.
I liked Sarah. She was a no-nonsense woman. She got into some prickly situations but she got out of them in believable ways. She was tough as nails and not afraid to fight and she knew how to use a gun. She wasn't one of those heroines who needs to fall back on a man to save her, but when one does she appreciates it without fawning all over him. She was a strong heroine, and well-written. I'm still trying to figure out how she supported herself doing all this, as saving people wasn't a paying job.
I also liked the other characters. The police detective and his female partner, for example. They were well-written and they did the right things. While it would have been easy for the author to have let them be bumbling idiots, they instead were strong and smart. Just when you thought something was going to happen to show that the officer missed a good opportunity and the bad guy got the upper hand, instead we find the good guys being a little bit smarter and I remember sort of giving a sigh of relief on more than one occasion when I was sure the officer was going to blow a crucial surveillance but instead was right on top of it.
I didn't care for some of the in-depth torture descriptions. There's enough violence I see on the news every day, so I like to escape into books that don't keep ramming it home, but I think the rest of the story was redeeming enough that I was able to get past the more gruesome parts.
In the long scheme of things, however, this isn't a book that will stick in my memory. It was a rather entertaining read, but not something I would consider outstanding. I would consider reading other books in this series, though, but might want to wait a while between them and intersperse them with a few things of a bit less violent nature. But if you like almost non-stop action, then you'd like this book.
Sarah is shot once again but with a Syringe hold a toxic position and kills you within seconds. She's already at the hospital and the Dr. Is t he administrator of her lethal injection. Will this be her demise or like in the past, will she walk away unscathed?
Vegas is a place for action but the action here seems to place long odds against Sarah getting out of town alive.Will her newly acquired fighting skills enable her to defeat a female assassin bent on killing her?
Standby for thrills and surprises as Vivian guides Sarah into impossible situations, and a relative surfaces to complement her skills.
It's the same formula for all Sarah Roberts stories. She comes to town, she gets in a bit of trouble, people get killed and she gets out of town unscathed (almost).
This book was a bit predictable. I liked it, don't get me wrong, but it was - as I stated above - too neatly packaged.
If you are a fan of the Sarah Roberts series, you will enjoy but know it's short and sweet and predictable - more so than the others in the series.
