Thin Ice by Irene Hannon



Thin Ice

by Irene Hannon

If Ginny Reed is still alive--who is the woman buried in her grave?

After losing her parents and her sister, Christy Reed has been mired in grief. Now, life is finally starting to feel normal again--until an envelope addressed in her sister's handwriting arrives in the mail. And the note inside claims she is still alive.

FBI Special Agent Lance McGregor, a former Delta Force operator, is assigned to reopen the case . . . but he's coming up with more questions than answers. Is Christy a pawn in a twisted cat-and-mouse game--or the target of a sinister plot? As Lance digs deeper, one thing becomes clear: someone in the shadows has a deadly agenda.

Bestselling author and three-time RITA Award winner Irene Hannon pulls out all the stops in this high-stakes thriller that races to a bone-chilling finish.

Here's my review of this exciting novel:
 
First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Irene Hannon and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Thin Ice" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.
“Thin Ice” by Irene Hannon takes off at a run the moment you open the front cover.  This suspenseful read will keep you on the edge of your seat until the equally fast-paced conclusion.  This second offering in the Men of Valor series reads perfectly well as a standalone novel.
Christy Reed, former Olympic caliber competitor in ice skating lost her sister, Ginny, in a house fire just a few months after losing both parents in a car accident.  As the months pass and grief begins to give way to normalcy, she receives a letter addressed in her sister’s handwriting claiming that she’s been taken and not to contact the police.  In spite of the warning, Christy seeks the help of the FBI and is connected with Special Agent Lance MacGregor, a former Delta Force team member.  The attraction between the two is very evident, but MacGregor’s policy not to mix business with pleasure keeps the romance on the back burner while the suspense story plays out.  This makes the story even more suspenseful, crackling with the promise of greater reward when the case is solved.
This novel from Irene Hannon is another for my “keeper shelf”.  It is good, clean entertainment that I will turn to again in the future.
