Review: Driven by Rebecca Zanetti

Author: Rebecca Zanetti
Publisher: Zebra
Publication date: January 2021

Unswerving: Angus Force is determined to hunt down the serial killer he’d once shot dead—or so he thought. But an anonymous source reports that Lassiter is alive. Force hasn't slept since, knowing it’s only a matter of time before “the Surgeon” strikes again. And soon, a body is found, bearing Lassiter’s same maniacal MO. It’s just the beginning of a murderous trail blazing through DC and Virginia, right to Force’s backyard . . .

Unstoppable: Nari Zhang is the shrink for the ragtag Deep Ops Unit, though she isn’t Force’s shrink—which is a very good thing. Because once they’re thrown together on the case, their attraction is explosive and irresistible. They’ll just have to fight that much harder to keep the heat between them from flaming out of control. But things are about to become far more challenging, and deadly, than they could have imagined . . .

Unhinged: Once the killer catches a glimpse of Nari, she becomes his new obsession. She is now the focus point—for both Force and Lassiter—in a dangerous dance for survival . . .

Driven is the 4th book in the Deep Ops series.  The series has been leading up to this book with a story arc involving Angus.  Angus has been searching for the serial killer, Lassiter. Despite what the feds have said, Angus believes that Lassiter is still alive.   He has also been circling his colleague Nari for almost a year.  I have been looking forward to their story because their chemistry drove me crazy over the first 3 books.  I was really happy that this book didn't disappoint. 

The mystery was great.  Someone is killing women who look like the women on Angus's team.  The signature looks like Lassiter's, but there are subtle differences. I didn't expect the twist in the end.   I also loved watching Nari and Angus finally get together. I enjoyed watching Nari be able to take care of herself as well.  Her mother taught her well.  I was rooting for Angus to realize he didn't have to be a loner and that he had a lot of support.  One of the things I love about this series is all of the characters and how they have formed a family.  I hope this isn't the end of the series.  There are a couple of other characters that I would love to see be the focus of future books.  I highly recommend this one as well as the entire series.
