The last (so far) in the ‘Orchid’ series of books by Stuart Woods which focus on the character of Holly Barker, ex-army MP, ex-Chief of Police in Orchid Beach Florida and currently high ranking CIA agent. In this book Holly is sent away for a long holiday and chooses to go back to her place in Orchid Beach. When she arrives she finds that her successor as local Chief of Police has also recently been promoted and the new Chief is her nemisis and attempted rapist from army days (small world isn’t it).
It just so happens that there is also a series of unsolved rapes and murders which Holly gets mixed up in and with some help have to try to investigate the Chief of Police without alerting him to their suspicions. There are many twists and turns in this book, as with all Stuart Woods books it is a complete easy to read page turner that just keeps the pace even all the way through. Good story, good book.
