Can be read out of order but you will understand her better if you read in sequence.
Hannah, a highly motivated female engineer, encounters both the good and bad sides of a male-dominated world. When disaster strikes and her close friend and mentor is killed, her attempts to raise the alarm to sabotage are dismissed as unfounded. Caught between management, the press and the police, she tenaciously follows the thin trail of evidence in her own investigation to uncover the guilty parties.
The excellent dialog and action scenes capture your attention and drag you into the very core of the drama. The climax does not disappoint. Hanna bounces between explosive danger and an equally explosive relationship with Noel, an eager reporter who follows her every move. The variety of characters, including an over-demanding cat make this an excellent drama to keep you entertained.
Hall cares about environmental risks and the dangers that haunt the petrochemical industry, but she resists creating bad guys and good guys--they are mostly guys--in simplistic categories. Every woman has met these men in her workplace whether it's the crude sexist or the fair-minded working partner.
A terrifying fire-fighting scene, an icy climb at a tank farm, a car rollover in a blizzard all offer fresh adventure settings for readers tired of slick urban or isolated rural settings typical of the genre. Frankly, the believable and documented potential for environmental disaster felt even more frightening than the stalking killer determined to silence Hannah Morrison for what she finally uncovers.
Bravo, Ms. Hall. Bring Hannah back for more. She gets scared, she uses her brain, she fights back and she offers science-based detective work. No wonder her smart-mouth TV reporter and love interest wants treats Hannah to great meals and good sex.
But there's more than just a mystery going on here. There's also Hannah's burgeoning romance with Noell, the handsome, hunky reporter who is drawn into the mystery--and her life--along with her. Happily for the reader, he's just the man for her. Teaser: don't miss the skyway scene!
Ms. Hall skillfully weaves romance with danger, mystery with suspense in a tale that at times moves at a relentless pace, and other times relaxes at just the right moment as Hannah seeks an answer to the mystery at the refinery and discovers sabotage...and love. A memorable read, this book, along with a box of chocolates, would make a great stocking stuffer for the lady in your life this Christmas--or an extra-special treat any other time of the year.
