Beyond Reach

Whoa, I did not plan on a week long break from reading, but work was crazy and then my computer died and I just got it back up and running! Not cool, not cool.  So, when I said I was going to catch up on a weeks of blog posts from others on Sunday? Yeah, more like this Sunday I will be reading 2 weeks worth! ;)


Description: In a stifling hospital room in a small Georgia town, Detective Lena Adams sits, silent and angry—the only suspect in a horrific murder. Soon, a hundred miles away, Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver will get the call that his young detective has been arrested. And Jeffrey’s wife, pediatrician and medical examiner Sara Linton, has troubles of her own and little patience for Lena or her dramas. Fighting a heartbreaking malpractice suit, Sara cannot guess that within days she herself will be at the center of a bizarre and murderous case. 
For Lena has fled back to the place where she grew up hard, careening back through the shadows of her past and into a shocking underground world of bigotry and rage. And now only Jeffrey and Sara can free Lena from the web of lies and brutality that has trapped her—as this powerhouse of a novel races toward its shattering climax…and a final, unforgettable twist.

Okay, so in my very last post I posted about how I was mad at Lena and how I could foresee what was going to happen because I had kinda sorta read a spoiler.  Well, MY thought on what was going to happen didn't happen but the main outcome did, and in the end I'm STILL mad at Lena.

So, in typical stubborn stupid form she realizes her uncle is back to using and wants to save the day by figuring out who his dealer is and drags herself and old friends into a meth ring full of white supremacists.  Of COURSE Jeffrey has to help her and it's just crazy and dangerous and Sara refuses to leave Jeffrey and go home away from the danger. 

I really really liked this book.  Not happy with the outcome, but I'm not surprised and it's a GREAT edge of your seat book.  If you are into thrillers/mysteries you should RUN and check out Slaughter's Grant County series!

How would you judge the cover of this book?
