Dead Drift by Dani Pettrey | Book Review by Loraine Nunley #bookreview

What is this book about?

Seven years ago, operative Luke Gallagher vanished to become part of an elite team set on capturing a deadly terrorist. When Luke returns to face those he left behind, their help becomes his only hope of stopping his target’s latest threat of an attack that would shake America to its core.

Private investigator Kate Maxwell never stopped loving or looking for Luke after he disappeared. But she also never imagined he left her or his life by choice. Now he’s back, and together they must unravel a twisting thread of secrets, lies, and betrayal, all while on the brink of a biological disaster.

Will they and their love survive, or will Luke and Kate become the terrorist’s next mark?

My review:

This book was actually two different stories that were tied together by the team of people in this series. Each story was introduced in the previous books and they were neatly concluded in this one. There was a lot of suspense while I tried to figure out who the villain was in the one storyline and how the villain we knew about in the other storyline was going to be apprehended.

I really like team dynamics because it takes away the pressure of one or two characters being larger than life. And I enjoyed seeing the relationships from the previous books continue to develop in this one. The romance between Luke and Kate was fireworks but some of that had to do with other feelings (like guilt and anger) that came between them.

The balance between the romance and the suspense was good and everything was fast paced. I did find myself more interested in the secondary storyline than I was in the terrorist plot.

What I enjoyed most about this book:

Revisiting the relationships between the characters from the previous books.

What I didn’t like about this book:

The terrorist plot and the detailed briefings with the FBI.

My rating:  4 out of 5 stars

Would I recommend this book to others?  Yes. There is a nice balance between the romance and suspense. It has a nice team dynamic with both storylines coming to a satisfying conclusion and bringing the series to a good end. This is the fourth book in the series. While it can be read as a standalone, I would recommend reading the series in order to get the fullness of both story lines.
