There's a reason Heather Graham is a best-selling and award-winning author, and that reason is: she's a terrific writer! Scroll on down for my complete review of her latest novel.
Description from the Publisher:
On the edge of the Everglades, an eerie crime scene sets off an investigation that sends two agents deep into a world of corrupted faith, greed and deadly secrets.
A ritualistic murder on the side of a remote road brings in the Florida state police. Special Agent Amy Larson has never seen worse, and there are indications that this killing could be just the beginning. The crime draws the attention of the FBI in the form of Special Agent Hunter Forrest, a man with insider knowledge of how violent cults operate, and a man who might never be able to escape his own past.
The rural community is devastated by the death in their midst, but people know more than they are saying. As Amy and Hunter join forces, every lead takes them further into the twisted beliefs of a dangerous group that will stop at nothing to see their will done.
Doomsday preppers and small-town secrets collide in this sultry, twisty page-turning thriller.

Oh, I love a good thriller! Technically, though, I would classify this novel more as a mystery than a thriller, but I suppose that's a debatable topic.
Heather Graham delivers a spine-tingling tale of murder and mystery in her latest novel, Danger in Numbers.
Graham's writing is easy to read and the storyline was simple to follow. While many plot elements were anticipated and predictable, there were also plenty of twists and turns to keep me guessing. Plus, I love a strong female lead character, and Graham gives us a good one who can fight her own battles and still know when to accept help from others.
The only element of the book that I found a bit cheesy were some of the characters' names. There were a lot of trees and plants involved: Hunter Forrest, Detective Mulberry, Aidan Cypress, Karyl Vine, and maybe others that I missed!
And a fair warning: if you're squeamish at all, you should know there are a lot of gruesome death scenes in this story.
Danger in Numbers is another well-written murder mystery by highly-acclaimed author Heather Graham.
