Book Review: Dark Ambitions

From The Back:
Danger lurks when ambitions turn deadly . . .
Former Army Night Stalker Rick Jordan usually has his camp for foster children to himself during the winter months. But someone has visited recently--leaving a trail of blood. One of the two clues left behind tips Rick off to the identity of his visitor, who soon turns up dead. The police deem it an accident, but Rick isn't convinced.

With the help of private investigator Heather Shields, he sets out to decipher the remaining clue. Except someone doesn't want them to succeed--and will stop at nothing to keep them from finding the truth

My Reflections:
Ohh, Irene Hannon, you have done it again! This just might be one of my favourite novels penned by Hannon. Her attention to detail and the tension created in the plot kept me reading well past an appropriate time!

The story opens with Former army night stalker Rick Jordan (who has reformed his life to helping run a camp for foster children) Rick comes across what looks to be blood on the ice of his tranquil pond. After further examination, he realizes this may be bigger than he was prepared for. 
When indeed it looks like this could be a message from his long-ago army buddy, Rick knows he will not rest until he knows what is going on.

Desperate for answers he turns to Phoenix Inc where he meets investigator Heather Shields, the attraction is immediate on both sides and they both strive to maintain a cool and composed business relationship. Knowing this investigation hinges on putting their feelings on the back burner both dive into the evidence and truth available to them.

This book will keep you guessing until the end, which is the hallmark of an expert suspense author.
I found myself deeply engaged in all aspects of this story and am pretty confident my readers who love suspense will eat this one up as well!
