The Kill Sign: A Jamie Sinclair Novel by Nichole Christoff

Here's another hold-on-to-your-seat thrill ride through the fast paced life of Jamie Sinclair.  She learns some things about her past that she doesn't want to know...

Alibi and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank  you).  It will be published December 6th.  This is the third book in the series, so you may want to read the first two while you're waiting.

Jamie is going to spend the weekend with her lover.  They have big plans to stay in their hotel room most of the time and enjoy each other.  However, they have to attend a dinner first.  When a man she's put in jail before is at the same dinner, she goes on high alert.  The young man she met when visiting the base is there with his girlfriend.  Another guy butts in and when they get in a fight, everyone goes to stop it.  The first man she saw throws a duffel bag over the side, she rushes to see what where it went.  It was a dirty bomb and explodes.  The young soldier dies, and her lover becomes in charge of the case.  So much for their sexy weekend...

It doesn't take long until Jamie realizes her old mentor is somehow connected to this.  She's very good at snooping and as she starts removing layers and looking at what's hidden behind them, she's torn.  She wants to help her boyfriend but she also wants to protect Ray.  Ray was more of a father figure to her than her own father.  That makes it harder to do her job.  Of course, no one is paying her so it's not really a job; it's a desire to find the truth.

Jamie's emotions are running high in this investigation.  Her lover wants to get his life back on track (he got in trouble with the service on his last case) and then he wants to marry her.  She knows she loves him but she's got an allergy to marriage.  When the DEA agent she's got the hots for shows up, she's got real problems.  She needs him to watch her back while she does dangerous things but she won't go to bed with him.

The romance part is still up in the air at the end of this story.  I wish Jamie would settle down and get her own life together.  If she's wishy-washy much longer, she may end up alone.  That wouldn't be good for anybody.  However, no matter what she does now, someone will get hurt.
