Forensic Instincts: Book 9
Publication Date: March 22nd, 2022
Aimee Bregman had the perfect life. She had an enviable job as head of marketing for an up-and-coming CBD-infused beer that was taking the tri-state area by storm. She had cultivated a massive social media following that showcased the beer at college campus parties and alumni events―and had fun doing it. She had an attentive, steady boyfriend and friends who believed in her. Everything was going right.
But when her long-time mentor, Rita, sets up a business meeting with an important influencer―her life crashes all around her. The casual meeting over drinks suddenly devolves into a shouting match between all parties, and any chance of a new business relationship is over before it begins. Hours later, when the NYPD shows up at Aimee’s apartment, questioning her about Rita’s abrupt disappearance―foul play suspected―Aimee realizes she’s in way over her head.
Fearing that Rita has been murdered, and that she may be next, Aimee hires Forensic Instincts to keep her safe and figure out what’s really going on.
Forensic Instincts, a brilliant investigative firm who walks the fine line between legal and illegal, solves challenging and high-profile cases when the bureaucratic restrictions imposed on law enforcement get in the way of achieving results. But neither Aimee nor Forensic Instincts realize how ruthless, how connected, their adversaries are. As dangerous and powerful people are threatened with exposure, anyone is fair game for elimination. And when multiple victims die at the hands of a sociopathic serial killer, it gets harder and harder to tell where the battle lines are drawn… and who might die next.
When Aimee Bregman finds herself being questioned by the police after the disappearance of her mentor, she’s determined to find out what really happened. She turns to Forensic Instincts for assistance, unleashing a powerful team of experts with no bureaucratic boundaries.
Author Andrea Kane delivers a pulse-pounding thriller in At Any Cost. With interesting characters who bring diverse skills to the table, the Forensic Instincts team serves as the catalyst for action within the story. From artificial intelligence to sophisticated computer hacking, the methodology is new, exciting, and effective. The team dynamics add another layer of depth.
The storyline builds as additional bodies are found. With Aimee in the killer’s crosshairs, the tension ramps up. I loved how the author dropped subtle clues that turned out to be distractions. The true culprit made my jaw drop, proving how effective the author was in adding layers of suspense and subterfuge.
At Any Cost provides a psychological joyride packed with suspense. It has a modern flair, not only with the inclusion of a CBD-infused beer but with the investigative techniques used to find clues.
Andrea Kane is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of thirty-one novels, including seventeen psychological thrillers and fourteen historical romantic suspense titles.
