Review: Danger in Numbers by Heather Graham
Starting off with a heart pounding escape from killer to diving into a gruesome killing, this is a fast paced suspense trying to figure out who is killing these marginalized women. The homicides revolve around a suspected religious cult. Ms. Graham creates a scary and all too believable scenario with this creepy cult. The way a person can prey on the disenfranchised is all too easy to see. When people are suffering and they want to blame someone else or cannot see a way out of their destitute situation, scape goats and false promises are way too alluring.
For me, this book should be classified as suspense or thriller. The romance part could have been left out and the story would have been just as good or better. Whilst I liked both Amy and Hunter, I did not feel like they were a long lasting couple or needed to be. They seemed better as partners or becoming long time friends. At times, the romantic interludes felt forced or unnecessary.
Learning about their pasts and how it defines the two of them is what makes this book so great for me. It seems that many of the books in this series show how a single pivotal moment in time can influence a person for the good or bad. In this instance, Hunter is set on a path of defending the innocent and those who can not protect themselves. I like Hunter and how he picked his name. It is a heartwarming story.
This suspense book is recommended to readers who like mysteries and crime solving.
