In a newly built hotel the celebrations are underway for Inauguration night, but this is going to be a party like no other. When a group calling themselves the Red Mantle decide to interrupt proceeding it will take everyone attending the ball to ensure that they do not succeed. Written by four different authors, this book combines one night, one ball and one terrorist sect from the view points of four different perspectives. Extremely well written by all authors as they subtly include scenes from each others stories.
(nb – I have already read this book once but will be reviewing each novella separately as I reread them)
UNMASKED: An Edgars Family Novella-by Suzanne Ferrell
Abigail Whitson and Luke Edgars are partners in both their work and their private lives. Whilst working undercover to locate missing missiles and plant a listening device on their lead suspect, Luke and Abigail inadvertently get caught up in the terror that strikes the Inauguration ball. With their plans now changed it is up to Luke and Abigail, with the help of Frank Castello, to get as many innocent people out of the hotel as safely as they can.
But not everyone is to be trusted.
This story is best read after Vanished as it continues on with Abigail and Luke with a lead into Frank Castello’s own story, Exposed. I will admit that I actually read the whole book, Capitol Danger, before I read any of the Edgars Family novels but I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to find out how Luke and Abby got to the stage they were at. Starting with the first story, Kidnapped, had me hooked from then on.
I do love the Edgars family. The camaraderie mixed with continual banter between them all, plus the protectiveness towards their women, makes for such great characters.
This story was very well written and brought to life yet another member of the ever expanding Edgars family (I have no doubt we will be hearing more from her in due course). Finding themselves mixed into a terrorist attack was not what they had planned but in the usual Edgars style they face it full force.
Brilliant novella in it’s own right but highly recommended to read all four parts to get the most out of Capitol Danger.
