Goodreads: When the estates of the 100 wealthiest Americans are targeted in a series of sophisticated, high tech heists, Los Angeles TV news reporter Kate Bradley must venture inside the world of the super rich to investigate the biggest story of the year.
As the heists escalate, Kate’s search is thwarted when the Los Angeles police detective she’s been working with mysteriously disappears, her senator father demands that she stop reporting on the heists, and the billionaire victims refuse to talk to the media. Kate uncovers clues that those behind the robberies have shocking, yet uplifting, motives—it just may be a perfectly good crime that brings about powerful change.
Further complicating her life is a dream job awaiting her in New York, a choice that could shatter from her deepening relationship with Fire Captain Eric Hayes. Kate must trust her instincts—and her heart—in a high stakes search that will test everything she believes and force her to decide where she belongs.
Kritters Thoughts: Most who dun it mysteries have a murder in them, this one did not. Instead of trying to find a killer and their motive, this book the reader is trying to find the robber and their motive when explained is interesting and intriguing.
I love mysteries, they are by far my favorite kind of story at the moment. I have read quite a bit where a murder is the investigation and I still enjoy those, but I liked that this one was different. If you like an investigation, but have read a lot of murders or through the eyes of police - this one will be a refreshing break.
I loved following a journalist through the ins and outs of the investigation - especially when she is dating a fireman and may have an inside loop into the police force. I loved how she got information and then her approach to journalism. Of course it made it even more interesting that she was the daughter of a senator. So in all this, I loved the character of Kate which was vital in this story as she is the reader's only in to the story.
I had no idea when I was pitched this book that it was book two in a series, I feel like I was missing a little bit from not having read book one, but I will definitely be going back and reading it before I venture onto the next book.
Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
