Title: A Measure of Madness

Author: Kim McMahill

Genre: Suspense, Romantic Suspense

Book Blurb:

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.

My Review:

The stakes couldn’t be higher for FBI agent Devyn Nash and her team. They’ve finally located the architect behind the deadly organization, Coterie. When trying to bring him in, bullets rain and Coterie agents flee. Devyn and her partner are hot on the trail when her partner winds up in the hospital with life-threatening injuries. More determined than ever to capture these vile people affiliated with Coterie and bring them to justice, Devyn defies orders and goes after them. She puts her job, her career, her relationship with Sheriff Gage, her very life, on the line. Has she taken a measure of madness or will she be the latest victim in Coterie’s lethal plan?

A Measure of Madness is a thrilling suspense from start to finish. I’ve read every book in the Risky Research series and this one is my favorite. Maybe it’s because I know these characters like the back of my hand, yet they continue to surprise me. Maybe it’s because the plot is so well-designed and executed, it takes my breath away. Maybe as the net is closing in on the bad men and women of Coterie, the stakes rachet up the suspense. Whatever it is, I couldn’t put it down. I lost sleep over this book. I thought about A Measure of Madness when I wasn’t reading. My mind reeled at the possible outcomes and when the ending finally arrived, I was blown away. Such a brilliant book and in my opinion, the best one Kim McMahill has written. If you’re a fan of suspense, drama, a touch of adventure, and a thrilling chase, you’ll want to read A Measure of Madness. Kim McMahill has solidified herself in the genre nicely. Highly recommend!

My Rating: 5+ stars
