Blog Tour/ Review: Collateral Damage by Fredrick Lee Brooke

By 10:00 AM , , , ,

When Annie Ogden’s ex-boyfriend Michael Garcia reappears, she has to confront a lie dating back to her time in Iraq. Will she go back to hot, passionate Michael, who has developed a disturbing interest in meth, or stick with her pudgy PI partner and fiancĂ©, Salvatore? The calculus changes when Michael is arrested for murder. When Salvatore refuses to help investigate, Annie is forced to try to find the killer herself. Meanwhile her sister’s creepy husband, Todd, is making more of an ass of himself than usual. Annie's problems with three obsessive men suddenly pale in significance when she realizes the killer has set his sights on her. Having changed his mind about helping her, Salvatore finds himself in a desperate race against time, the only man capable of finding the killer before it’s too late. 


Dear Fredrick Brooke,

How is it that no one told me about you and your amazeball books? Because they are amazing!



Now that that is out of the way, I know I have had said that people need to read this or that at least 20 million times on here, but this one is 100 percent yes you have to read it!

Collateral Damage has you yelling WTF aloud, on a plane, at midnight (Yeah that happened except it wasn't abbreviated and I sat next to little ones), and keeps you in amazing suspense. Brooke just has this way of interweaving plot lines to where it's 1) not confusing; 2) makes you feel like you're there; and 3) just plain awesome when you get to the end!

I needed another fix after this one, so I quickly grabbed the others in the Annie Ogden series. Right now I'm on Zombie Candy, and woo!
