Seconds to Live

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 thoughts: This is the first book I have read by Susan and I found it very enjoyable. I love that it brings the different agencies together, though it mostly focuses on the witness protection program. The mystery was interesting, though not as fast moving as I thought it would be, but I still enjoyed it. I look forward to read the other books in the series.
I received this book from Bethany House. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.

  1. Currently reading this one now, and it's quite good. First I've read by Susan as well (or if I did read one of hers it'd have been a small Love Inspired novel YEARS ago). Glad to see her with BH now, and that this book is the start of a promising new series. :)

    1. Hey Stranger! I need to get back into doing TTT.;)
      I'm glad to see her with BH as well, since it's always nice to see good authors picked up by the bigger publishing houses.
