Police officer Brinna Caruso is passionate about fighting crime. With her canine partner Hero, she’s proud of her reputation for zealously hunting down those who harm her community, and Caruso has a particularly soft spot for the predators who victimize children. When the dead body of a young woman turns up in her jurisdiction, it won’t be a typical open-and-shut case. The case evolves and although Caruso is always emotionally invested in protecting innocent people, there’s something different about this case. Professional and personal boundaries blur, and suspense continues to build.
Additionally, a dash of romance makes the story more interesting, and the amount is just enough to sweeten the story without making it sappy or overly sentimental. The faith component of this story is present, but it’s presented in small doses and very realistic ways, meaning that it isn’t preachy, and it has substance. The spiritual questions and answers offered resemble a conversation that real people would have.
Visible Threat greatly exceeded my expectations and I would be very happy to read more of Janice Cantore’s work.
