FBI special agent Nick Bradley has seen his share of kooks during his fifteen years with the Bureau. But Rachel Sutton is an enigma. She seems normal when she shows up at the FBI office in St. Louis--until she produces a tattered Raggedy Ann doll she found and tells him she thinks something is wrong because of a strange feeling of terror it gives her when she touches it. Nick dismisses her, only to stumble across a link between the doll and an abducted child, setting in motion a chain of events that uncovers startling connections--and puts Rachel's life on the line. Filled with palpable suspense and a touch of romance, In Harm's Way is the final installment of the thrilling HEROES OF QUANTICO series.
Oh, my! While I enjoyed the other two books in this series, this one is by far the best! Rachel is a teacher, piano player and artist all rolled into one. Nick is introduced in the previous book in the series, but is the focus of this book. He and Rachel meet when she brings a ''Raggedy Ann' doll to the FBI and says she is getting bad vibes from it. He thinks its a bit off the wall but she seems so sincere that he can't dismiss it outright. He comes across a photo that links the doll to an abducted infant and everything begins to happen at once.
The build up in this book was amazing. You feel like you are reading two unrelated stories and then they are linked and the action picks up big time. Rachel is a very down to earth lady and is completely thrown when she touches the doll and feels complete terror, SHE doesn't even believe what is happening to her. She goes to the FBI and luckily talks to Nick who doesn't really believe her but gives her the benefit of the doubt. Nick is instantly attracted to Rachel and strangely enough they find there is a lot of similarities in their past. There is a lot of suspense and several twists in the story that surprised me.
I rate this book a 5/5. You don't have to have read the other two in this series, just go get this one and read it now!
