An extremely good story that starts when a woman, about to die, whispers to her sister FOLLOW THE DRUGS.
Are you hooked? I know that I was when I heard that comment. Two sisters, Heather an FBI Agent and Kit, an Assistant District Attorney are spending some time together as they are so busy at their jobs that they never seem to enjoy each otherís company. On a helicopter tour the copter has trouble and crashes into the forest killing the pilot and Kit. But, before Kit passes on she tells her sister to "follow the drugs." When Heather wakes up in the hospital she is confronted with Sheriff's Deputy Jeremy Latham, who is assigned to the case. They decide to pool information as neither one of them believes that the crash was an accident.
They start working together and gather more and more information. While going for the truth they learn to trust and care deeply for each other. They may lose this when the killers target Heather. If Heather's bosses at the FBI knew she was digging into this case she might lose her job and perhaps Jeremy's love.
I read this book in one sitting and enjoyed every minute of it. It's not a very large book but very well written with fascinating characters. So, enjoy and I'll talk to you soon.
