Review: Danger in Numbers by Heather Graham

Author: Heather Graham
Publisher: MIRA
Publication Date:  March 2021

A ritualistic murder on the side of a remote road brings in the Florida state police. Special Agent Amy Larson has never seen worse, and there are indications that this killing could be just the beginning. The crime draws the attention of the FBI in the form of Special Agent Hunter Forrest, a man with insider knowledge of how violent cults operate, and a man who might never be able to escape his own past.
The rural community is devastated by the death in their midst, but people know more than they are saying. As Amy and Hunter join forces, every lead takes them further into the twisted beliefs of a dangerous group that will stop at nothing to see their will done.
Doomsday preppers and small-town secrets collide in this sultry, twisty page-turning thriller.

Danger in Numbers is the latest from Ms. Graham that is not part of her Krewe of Hunters series.  It still involves the FBI, but there is nothing supernatural here.  The story involves a series of murders that seem to be related to a cult.  For the most part, I did enjoy the book.  

I thought the mystery was solid.  I was sucked into the hunt for the killer and how they were tied to a cult.  There were some twists.  Along with the present day mystery, we also get flashbacks to a family who is trying to flee a cult years before.  It was interesting how that storyline was tied onto the present day murder case.  But the thing I didn't love was the romance. Honestly, it would have been OK if it had not been included .  It was a bit too insta-love for me with little chemistry. The story only takes place over a few days.  The ending was left on a bit of a cliffhanger.  So I hope there will be another book.
