New Release Review! TOUGH JUSTICE COUNTDOWN 1 by Carla Cassidy (Book 1 of 8)

by Carla Cassidy

Tick. Tock. BOOM.

FBI Special Agent Lara Grant had thought that she’d put her past behind her—finally—with her last case. But now a serial bomber is targeting Manhattan’s elite power players, offering them a choice between saving hundreds of lives or seeing their darkest secrets exposed. Lara is working with the Crisis Management Unit to stop the bomber, but how will she react when she’s the one who has to choose between truth…or death?

Part 1 of 8: an explosive new installment in the thrilling FBI serial from New York Times bestselling author Carla Cassidy and Tyler Anne Snell, Emmy Curtis and Janie Crouch.



I really like the idea of this series–eight novellas, and four authors–you can read a part in a sitting or two, getting the whole story eventually in small bites and get a taste of new authors at the same time. I’ve only had time to read book one so far, but you’d better believe I’m going to be coming back for more–I need to know what’s going to happen! I like the characters and am intrigued by the suspense storyline. With so many fairly short “episodes”, it should be fairly easy to squeeze them in between work and school in the next few weeks. Stay tuned! 🙂

Rating: 4 stars / B
