NIGHT MOVES by Susan Sleeman, Reviewed by Winnie Thomas

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.

BackCover Blurb:
If you’re in his sights…
County social worker, Natalie Dunn discovers a horrible secret about the father of her juvenile clients. The man not only killed one woman, but Natalie suspects he’s killed several others. She plans to go to the authorities, but before she can, the killer turns his sights on her. Fearing for the lives of this man’s children, she removes them from their home and calls in former U.S. Marshal, Drake Byrd of Nighthawk Security to protect her and the children and help her prove their father is a ruthless killer

You’re as good as dead.
As they investigate, Drake learns the father is a former elite sniper and assassin, and he has done a professional job of hiding any evidence of his wrong doing. Drake vows to protect Natalie and the three children—all of whom he has come to care for—putting everything on the line for them. When bullets start flying, can he save them all from a certain death?
