Aftershock

(1 customer review)

Former FBI Hostage Negotiator McKenna Davis had hoped that joining SPNI, a private security company in Savannah, would allow her the new beginning she craved. With her marriage and law enforcement career in ruins in the aftermath of tragedy, she needed a fresh start and made her move. The stigma of internal investigations into her actions in the line of duty had dragged on long past its breaking point, and salvaging her reputation seemed an impossible feat. The last person McKenna expected to encounter in Georgia was the one man whom she had foolishly spent a night of passion with months earlier in Washington, D.C., nor did she foresee taking on his family as SPNI clients. read more

    In Aftershock by Alex Croft, a former FBI hostage negotiator named McKenna Davis starts afresh at a private security firm, SPNI, in Savannah, following personal and professional upheavals. Surprisingly, she encounters a past fling, FBI Agent Blake Anderson, and takes on his family as clients. Anderson finds himself investigating Davis’s colleague, ex-MI6 operative Nia Munro, instead of Davis. Meanwhile, Anderson’s half-sister, Candice Roberts, hires SPNI for security review as she fears a threat. Candice and her one-time colleague, Oliver Westicott, are kidnapped in Cuba by terrorists seeking to weaponize drones. Pretending to be married and risking all, they strive to survive and alert their rescuers.

    Aftershock by Alex Croft is one of those rare feats in contemporary fiction that ticks all the right boxes to make it stand out as really good fiction. It has rich characterization that pops out from the start, with a mix of flirty banter, business talk, and serious conversations between Anderson and McKenna while discussing his half-sister Candice. And Candice’s neopaganism is icing. The standout character to me is Nia and Croft’s dialogue pegs her as witty, daring, and somewhat sardonic, especially against characters like the starchy Davis. The settings are visual and, in a mark of true skill, Croft doesn’t just write static descriptions of a scene, the author uses them to advance the story and build tension. Scattered stinky socks, roach carcasses, and fear of discovery, anyone? The writing is exceptional and the pages fly forward, propping up this third book in the Savannah Sizzle series as a winner.
