I received an Advanced Review copy of this book from the author, Leslie Tentler
Ryan Winter is a detective on the Atlanta Police Department and has just been assigned the toughest case of his career. There is a killer on the loose who seems to be targeting police officers. He suspects that it might be gang related but there are very few leads to go on.
Ryan is also struggling with recent events in his personal life as he has just recently gotten divorced from his wife Lydia. Lydia is a doctor in the emergency room and their jobs make it so that they keep running into each other. From the very beginning Leslie Tentler makes it clear that there is still some electricity in the air when Ryan and Lydia are in a room together. Are things really over between them?
There were several plot lines going on at the same time in this book and I was puzzled a few times where the author was going with them. But the end was definitely a surprise for me and all of the various stories were brought together cleverly and cohesively. The book is definitely worth the read just for the ending alone.
The other aspect of the book I really appreciated was all of the research that went into the book about police procedurals and medical terminology. Leslie Tentler immerses the reader into the fast-paced, high anxiety world of cops and emergency room doctors.
If you enjoy a good mystery with some good old-fashioned romantic chemistry thrown in the mix then FALLEN by Leslie Tenter is definitely worth the read.
