When cybercriminals hack into the U.S. Marshal’s Witness Protection database and auction off personal details to the highest bidder, FBI Agent Sean Nichols begins a high-stakes chase to find the hacker. Trouble is, he has to work with U.S. Marshal Taylor Mills, who knows the secrets of his past, and the seconds are ticking down before someone dies.
Seconds to Live by Susan Sleeman is one epic romantic suspense novel. I was transported into a world of high stakes. Imagine going into witness protection program only for a hackers to bid your life off to killers. Money is always the motive. I was hooked.
What I liked most about this novel was two agencies coming together to work for a common purpose. Protect all those in the witness protection program. Those being protected in secret are now being threatened by an unseen deadly force. Dark, engaging, and thrilling at the same time.
Both agents had real life issues to overcome and put behind them. Their job came first. And those they were on guard to protect were also their highest priority. Deadly game of chase as the hackers and killers are ahead…but soon or later mistakes happen. Clues are left behind and the good guys will win. It’s just a matter of time.
Suspense, danger, and crime are the perfect mix for any novel. This particular read, had it all. I loved this first look into the new series, Homeland Heroes. Susan Sleeman writes well.
