Review: Crisis Shot

Crisis Shot by Janice Cantore
Reviewed by: Pam Graber
Genre: Christian Fiction
Publisher: Tyndale

Tess O’Rourke never wanted to be anything but a cop. She has worked her way through the ranks over 18 years on the Long Beach police force to the position of commander, but on a single officer-needs-assistance callout, she shoots an unarmed 14-year-old, and her career begins circling the drain. Cleared of wrongdoing by a grand jury, pressure both internal and external, forces Tess to find a new place to work. Rogue’s Hollow, Oregon is in need of a police chief so she applies and is hired. No one, including her fellow officers, appears to want her there. Can she change their minds, and show them that she knows her stuff?

As Tess settles into her new job, her only supporters appear to be the well-respected local pastor, Oliver MacPherson and his wife, Anna. When Anna disappears, all eyes are on Tess and her department to find her. When Anna’s cousin is found murdered, pressure mounts on Tess to stop the crime spree. Can she keep her head above water while so many in town, including the mayor, are trying to sink her?

I’ve read many of Janice Cantore’s books, and I am always impressed with her knowledge of police procedure, and her affinity for the “thin blue line.” This story seems ripped from the headlines, and I could almost believe that I would be seeing the facts on the news channels. Cantore’s suspense is unparalleled. I listened to the audio version of this book, and lost myself in the story many times over the course of listening. I highly recommend experiencing it in this way!

Suspense readers, especially those who enjoy police procedurals, will enjoy Crisis Shot. I’m looking forward to picking up Cold Aim and Lethal Target next! While there is a touch of romance here, it is so barely there I even hesitate to mention it.
