Every Three Hours – Book Review #15
If you’ve read my previous reviews, you’ll know that I read book 7 of the Darby McCormick series before reading book 6, Every Three Hours, by mistake.
I’m now all caught up and happy to say I still enjoyed book 6, even though it was out of order!
Every Three Hours
Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:
WHO LIVES AND WHO DIES? ONLY TIME WILL TELL…
Forensic investigator Darby McCormick queues to enter Boston Police Headquarters on a freezing winter morning. Lured back to her hometown to help solve a cold case, Darby won’t get far inside the station – and this will be no ordinary homecoming…
Because someone suddenly takes a woman hostage and a stand-off ensues. The man has explosives strapped to himself and other bombs hidden around the city, rigged to explode – every three hours – until he gets what he wants.
Working desperately against the clock, Darby realizes she is trapped between a kidnapper who would kill to expose the truth and people who would let others die to hide their lies…
I loved this book and because it was totally centred around the gunman who had taken hostages at Boston Police department, there wasn’t much of Darby and Coop’s back story. It didn’t feel at all like I was reading it out of order, which those who know me, will know how relieved I am!
I love the way Chris Mooney never paints Darby as a fearless heroine; she’s brave and she’s tough, but he still tells us how scared she is when she’s facing the different threats.
I was just going to say I hope Chris Mooney writes another Darby book. After checking Goodreads and seeing only 7 in the series, I Googled to see if there were any news on book 8 only to discover that not only has book 8 been written, I’ve already got it! I bought it without reading the blurb simply because it was by Chris Mooney and now I can’t wait to read book 8 🙂
