Some fears haunt you forever…


Kill Shot: A Novel (White Knights)Rick Cannon is the ballistics and weapons expert for the FBI’s special task force nicknamed the White Knights. He knew the Department of Defense was developing self-steering bullets and when they ended up in the wrong hands and people were being murdered, Rick knew he needed to find the killer or killers and the remaining bullets before something catastrophic happened. The only witness was Dr. Olivia Dobbs whose patient was the first victim.

Despite his attraction to Olivia, Rick accepts the fact that she could be involved in the theft and murder. He would not allow her to compromise his investigation. She, in turn, had reservations about people in the military having treated former military with PTSD.

Susan Sleeman’s “Kill Shot” is a suspenseful drama that opens up the possibility that former marines could steal a government secret weapon and sell it to terrorists.

As more murders happen, Rick and Olivia are forced to work together to discover the true motives behind the theft and the murders.

Sleeman works her magic of suspense and the plot was fascinating.  I was on the edge of my seat the whole time waiting for resolution. The only thing I didn’t care for was the interaction between Rick and Olivia. Their constant distrust of each other and his wavering between attraction for her and lack of trust in her was just too much for me. I developed an instant dislike towards Rick and never really found him likable.
