The Lair

A Sinner’s Grove novel.  By: A. B. Michaels.

When news arrives that Daniela Dunn’s father has passed, she is forced to return to Italy, to a home she fears. Her childhood home and the family members that live there, hold a critical secret to her past. One that Daniela is unable to remember, but still feels the effects every day. Unbeknownst to her, her friend Detective Gabe de la Torre, has been asked to accompany her and keep her safe. As the secrets from her past, come rushing forward, will Gabe be able to protect her?

This story starts with an opening bang. Throughout the novel, incidents and items from the previous book are mentioned, making this a sequel in a series that should be read in order. The romantic suspense buildup is great, while some of the mystery is predictable. This is a very twisted story about family secrets and what people will do to succeed in their minds. There is a secondary relationship that moved very quickly, while the primary couple slowly intensified their unity. Readers will feel like they have entered the shady underbelly of Italy, as they sit down and disappear into the story.

This is the third installment in the Countermeasure Series. The story’s emotional ebbs and flows can rival any ocean in the world. The authors clearly did amazing research into not only the history of the Middle East, but also the sentiments behind their traditions. Readers will be forced to travel to this area world and live with bated breath as they watch the events unfold. High action and high suspense, will keep readers guessing until the very end. Readers should start with the first novel in the series and work their way to this latest chapter. Alternate Connection is a heart-stopping tale that will leave readers anxiously waiting for the next book to be released.
