I always love picking up a new Susan Sleeman novel, because I know I’m in for nonstop action and suspense. Sleeman is a master at creating realistic, colorful, and engaging heroes and heroines and despicable, vile villains. Night Moves has both kinds of characters with some not showing their true colors until the dramatic and surprising end.
Social worker Natalie Dunn is compassionate, capable, and determined to protect her three juvenile clients from their father. Former U. S. Marshall, Drake Byrd, is courageous, dedicated, and tasked with protecting Natalie and the children. I enjoyed the interaction between Drake and Natalie as they work together to solve the case.
As usual, Sleeman ramps up the edge-of-your-seat suspense and keeps it going to the surprising end. Her knowledge of law enforcement and criminal investigation is readily apparent, and I always learn new things while reading her stories. With plenty of action, suspense, intrigue, and dashes of romance and inspiration, this book is a fantastic addition to Sleeman’s Nighthawk Security series.
*4.5 stars. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.
