Title: A Measure of Madness (Risky Research Series Book 4)
Author: Kim McMahill
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Pelican Book Group
FBI agent Devyn Nash's pursuit of a deadly organization heats up in this fourth installment of the Risky Research series. The FBI locates the mastermind behind Coterie, but attempts to bring him in result in a shootout that sends Coterie’s members scrambling for cover. When Devyn’s partner is left fighting for his life in a Puerto Rican hospital, she becomes more determined than ever to bring them to justice. Devyn’s decision to ignore her orders and pursue the head of Coterie to Brazil puts her job and her relationship with Sheriff Gage Harris in jeopardy, but she is unwilling to allow those responsible for so much death to live out their lives in paradise.
Devyn did as ordered as tears streamed down her cheeks. She felt like a coward running, but knew it was retreat or die.
Bullets rained around her as she ran in a zig-zag pattern, trying to avoid being hit. She had almost reached the truck when a bullet grazed her ankle, sending her tumbling to the ground. She scrambled to her feet. Fueled with adrenaline, she ignored the pain as she hobbled the last twenty feet to the truck.
Sliding into the driver’s seat, she locked the doors and fished the keys out of her pocket. She dared a glance back. Sofia was still firing, but was clearly too far gone to get off an accurate shot. But she had effectively given Devyn the time she needed to get to the truck.
As Sofia’s arm lowered, J.R. walked toward her. He knelt on the ground and placed his lips to hers for a long and tender moment. He then slowly rose to his feet and pointed the gun at Sofia.
Devyn couldn’t watch. She threw the truck into reverse and hit the gas. The truck’s tire’s spun and skidded on the dirt and gravel as she raced backwards until she reached a spot wide enough to turn around. Cranking the wheel hard, she spun the vehicle and barreled toward BR-116.
