Phantom Instinct by Meg Gardiner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sometimes I need to read a book that is like a Jack Bauer episode and this thriller worked for me! In fact, I read it in one day--that's the sign of a book that grabs your attention!
Harper's boyfriend is gunned down in a shooting at a nightclub, and a year later she is still mourning. But she's also still investigating the crime--she swears there was a third shooter, but the detectives don't believe her. She finds an unlikely ally in a police officer who was working at the club that night--Aiden also believes there was a third shooter, but he was injured in the fire at the club that night and he's not mentally stable enough to carry a gun. The two of them know that the 3rd shooter is following them, and, sure enough, he is. Eventually there is a 24-hour scene straight out of a movie that results in gunfire, backstabbing, new alliances, and corrupt corporations. All in all, it was an enjoyable fluffy treat!
