The Quantico Files Book 3
June 14th, 2022
Free Fall by Nancy Mehl has plenty of action, mystery, and intrigue. This is the last in a three-book series and readers will not be disappointed. Not only is the plot suspenseful, but it also shows how the heroine and hero are striving to overcome their demons.
In this story FBI special Agents Logan Hart and Alex Donovan are asked to form a profile of a woman kidnapped, Tracy Mendenhall. Through the investigation they find there are more women with the same characteristics, including Alex. Besides profiling the women, they are asked to profile the UNSUB after it is discovered four other women have gone missing in the county. They are in a race to beat the clock before more women go missing.
One of the main victims is Tracy. “I had the UNSUB capture her because she is a single mom with two children. She is a woman everyone could relate to and that readers were able to see events through her eyes. She is more vulnerable that Alex. But she is a fighter, a survivor, and refuses to give up.”
“Alex had a father leave when she was young, and her mother committed suicide. She found her mother’s body. She ended up living with an aunt. Because of this she tended to hide her feelings. Even though she works in the FBI she still carries her childhood trauma. In this book she is on a path to healing. Alex is strong, a risk taker, and has PTSD from a dramatic situation in the previous book. She is also vulnerable, fearless, kind, and has germaphobia. I gave her germaphobia because it comes from a desire to control her environment and makes her feel safe.”
“Although Logan is the direct opposite of Alex, he is drawn to her. Eventually, they become close friends. He wants more from the relationship, but because she is damaged, he takes it slowly. He would do anything for Alex. After his devastating medical diagnosis, he decides to tell Alex how he feels.”
Readers take a thrilling ride with the heroine free falling down a slippery slope. The pace will keep people on the edge of their seats.
