Crisis Shot, by Janice Cantore, is the first book in the Line of Duty series. It is set in both Long Beach, California, and Rogue’s Hollow, Oregon, in the present day. It addresses many current issues facing police officers and other first responders.
Tess O’Rourke’s dreams of becoming chief of police in Long Beach, California, come crashing down the day she shoots an unarmed teenager. Even when the grand jury clears her of wrongdoing, she realizes that her life will never return to its previous state, so she accepts a position as chief of police in Rogue’s Hollow, Oregon. The differences between the large metropolis and the small town are enormous, but Tess finds them just as challenging when her friend, the pastor’s wife, turns up missing and a man is found murdered. As she investigates with the help of sheriff’s deputy Steve Logan, they discover more going on in the small town than originally met the eye.
This was another incredible book from this author! The character development and details of the police work required to solve the crimes make the story riveting and the book difficult to put down. I especially liked Oliver Macpherson, with his heart focused on serving, despite his personal problems.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian suspense novels.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
