Dangerous Passage

Back Cover
When two Jane Does are killed on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia, detective and behavioral specialist Avery North discovers they share something in common—a magnolia tattoo on their shoulders.  Suspecting a serial killer, Avery joins forces with medical examiner Jackson Bryant to solve the crimes and prevent another murder.  As they venture deep into a sinister criminal world, Avery and Jackson are taken to the very edge of their abilities—and their hearts.
Dangerous Passage exposes a fully realized and frightening world where every layer peeled back reveals more challenges ahead.  You’ll be hooked from the start.
Crime/suspense/mystery is one of my favourite genres.  There is nothing better than a novel that keeps you on the edge of your seat, or up waaay past your ideal bedtime as you hurriedly flip the pages as the suspense is too taut to allow to you put the book down.  They are the type of stories that leave you thinking about it for days after you’ve finished reading it and make it on the coveted “favourites” bookshelf.
I wanted to love this novel so much and was so eager to dive into it, but Dangerous Passage fell a bit short of my expectations. There was just something missing…I had a hard time connecting with the characters and the nail-biting, heart-racing adrenaline just wasn’t there.  The story had all the right elements with a solid plot and what could be very interesting characters, but the pieces didn’t quite come together.

While I was a bit disappointed, I wouldn’t completely write off the book by any means.  The story was intriguing, and hits on a very difficult topic; a topic that I believe there should be more awareness about.  In the interest of not spoiling the plot, I won’t name the topic, but do give huge kudos to Ms. Harris for delving into this dark side of society...and being an advocate for the voiceless.
