Book Review: ‘Dead Center (Truth Seekers 5) by Susan Sleeman

About The Book
Everyone has a secret…
When forensic photographer Ainsley Duncan’s brother is wrongly convicted of murder, she works hard to exonerate him through her contacts, but nothing clears his name until she happens upon a long-buried secret involving Grady Houston—the Veritas Center’s ballistics, firearms, and explosives expert. Grady’s worked hard to keep this secret buried for years and doesn’t want it coming out, so he balks at her request to help find the real killer and free her brother.
But not all secrets lead to murder.
But when someone takes a dead center shot at Ainsley, Grady has no choice but to expose his past and let the consequences fall where they may. Even if he loses the job he loves and even if the woman who is capturing his heart wants nothing to do with him after she learns his secret. He won’t back down from helping Ainsley free her brother, and they find themselves in a race for their lives to solve the murder before the deadly killer strikes again.

My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘The guns came out of nowhere. Big men. Tall men. Assault rifles. Bursting through the front door, their bodies cloaked by darkness. The gun barrels creeping out of shadows like fingers. All pointing at Ainslee. Just a woman at home minding her own business.’

When a book opens with this paragraph, boy howdy, you know it’s going to be good! And it was! Supremely good. Suspense that is unrivaled by a master of suspense. Susan Sleeman is my go-to for inspirational romantic suspense and this book just cements that designation. She creates believable characters that jump right off the page, plots that are second to none and action that will have your heart racing, Especially during the finale in this book. Boy, was it ever great! I highly recommend not only this book but every book by this author.

*My thanks to the publisher and author for a copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
