Book Review: Seconds to Live by Susan Sleeman

About the Book

When cybercriminals hack into the US Marshals' Witness Protection database and auction off witnesses' personal details to the highest bidders, the RED Team led by FBI Agent Sean Nichols begins a high-stakes chase to find the hacker. But before he can even get started, the first witness is targeted and barely escapes with her life. Sean believes Phantom, an obsessed hacker who previously outwitted the top minds in the field, is behind the attack, and Sean needs this witness's help, as she's the person who has come closest to discovering Phantom's identity.

Trouble is, she's a witness under the care of US Marshal Taylor Mills, and Sean is reluctant to work with the captivating marshal who knows his deepest secrets. But Phantom claims he knows where the witness is hiding and will kill her, so to stop the hacker, Sean and Taylor must work through their personal pain and learn to trust each other. . . . The seconds are ticking down before someone dies.

My Review

This book captured my attention from the first page and kept my diligent attention until the very end.  Just the premise is interesting, but author Susan Sleeman has written a book that was so hard to put down because the action just kept happening!   Threats from within and without kept the tension high throughout the entire story.

It was quite interesting to witness Sean and Taylor's relationship transition from internet-only to real life.  That was a complication on top of having to work together in a high-stress environment, but that also kept it real.

For those who enjoy suspense, romantic suspense, police drama, or CSI-type books, this one is top-notch, and I highly recommend it for both men and women.  This is the first book of the Homeland Heroes series by Sleeman, and I can't wait for more!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Bethany House, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.
