Review: Flight by Laura Griffin

Product Description:
When a woman is found brutally murdered on Austin’s lakeside hike-and-bike trail, investigative reporter Bailey Rhoads turns up on the scene demanding access and answers. She tries to pry information out of the lead detective, Jacob Merritt. But this case is unlike any he’s ever seen, and nothing adds up. With the pressure building, Jacob knows the last thing he needs is a romantic entanglement, but he can’t convince himself to stay away from Bailey.

Bailey has a hunch that the victim wasn’t who she claimed to be and believes this mugging-turned-murder could have been a targeted hit. When she digs deeper, the trail leads her to a high-tech fortress on the outskirts of Austin, where researchers are pushing the boundaries of a cutting-edge technology that could be deadly in the wrong hands.

As a ruthless hit man’s mission becomes clear, Bailey and Jacob join together in a desperate search to locate the next target before the clock ticks down in this lethal game of hide-and-seek.

My thoughts:
It's been a while since I've read anything from Laura Griffin and I'm reminded of why I've loved her books. As always, the story flows so well and the characters come to life. They feel real and I can easily paint a picture in my head which isn't always the case with authors that force the story or aren't descriptive. While this is the 2nd book in the series, you don't need to have read the 1st one to understand and enjoy the read. I look forward to going back and reading any of the author's books I haven't read.
