Alex Troutt Thriller Series #2
The pursuit of the truth. The hunt for a life.be
For the first time in months, FBI Special Agent Alex Troutt feels almost normal, hanging out at a local bar with friends after work. Not long into the evening she stumbles over one of the most disturbing images she has ever seen.
And that’s only the beginning.
A body is found in Lowell, the human damage, once again, inconceivable. Hours later, another strike. Pushing heartache aside, Alex immerses herself in the investigation. But with every new clue comes a new twist.
With the killing spree drawing the attention of every intelligence and law enforcement agency in a five-state radius, Alex is forced to partner with an egomaniac from the CIA. Yet, even with limitless resources, every step forward proves to be a step too late, the kill list seemingly endless.
Once the killer makes it personal, Alex is left with no other option—she must confront the person who destroyed her life to try to cease the vicious murders. And when she finally learns the killer’s end game, every second counts if she has any hope of stopping the brutal killings.
The hunt will end. Will Alex?
Will the brutal killings ever end?
Alex Troutt thinks things are finally settling back into place in her life. Things are looking up, however slow it may be happening she feels she can handle things once again. With her memory returning still after waking up from amnesia months ago there are times things just don’t seem to make sense, but nothing compared to the sudden killing spree that’s hitting the streets.
Within the first few hours of a body being found another is uncovered, drawing in plenty of unwanted and unneeded attention while Alex is emerging herself into the new case. Even with a few setbacks, she knows how to get a job done and solve a case but with each new solid lead that takes her deeper into finding the person responsible for the killings there’s a twist that throws the entire case in the other direction. With more killings piling up the FBI is closing in on taking over the entire case that’s spreading across country, upping the intensity.
With pieces of the puzzle still missing Alex must find the connections with what seem to be weak leads. Convinced she’s on the right track Alex keeps her cool under pressure and steps up to the plate once again, proving she won’t stop until the job is done. She knows not everything is as it seems on the surface and digs deeper into the brutal world of the killer, determined not to stop until she uncovers the person behind the gruesome crime spree.
Will her determination and quick thinking be enough to stop a killer this time? Even with a major break in the case the killings continue, it’s up to her put an end to it before there’s another victim.
AT Large is a quick paced, suspenseful thriller leaving you questioning what will happen next right up to the last few pages. John Mefford did a wonderful job once again at bringing a story to life. AT Bay, was the first book in this series , and while I would recommend picking that up, AT Large is a stand alone. You don’t lose anything in the story, it gives you a little background on what had happened to Alex in the first, but nothing that takes away from the story plot. Characters are well written and there’s a constant flow in he story itself, loved that action and the suspense that keeps you guessing right to the end of the book. If you enjoy crime books, and suspense that leaves you guessing AT Large is the book for you!
As she begins her daunting quest to uncover the black spots on her memory, what she finds isn’t sweet or charming or even pleasant. And that’s when she begins to question everything, including herself.
Her work as a Special Agent for the FBI is only a distraction, serving as a mental metronome…anything to crank the gears of her feeble mind.
And then it happens—a bizarre, ritualistic murder. She loses herself in her work, fully immersed in the investigation. Unable to recall even her own kids, she’s somehow able to formulate coherent theories on what type of person could pull off such a sickening act.
As her mind slowly plugs a few memory gaps, her emotions are scrambled by the reality of her worlds colliding. And the resulting explosion tears her in two.
Can she pick up all the incendiary fragments to solve the twisted crime while she clings to some semblance of sanity?
One woman can only keep so much…AT Bay.
