★★★★★"Reign of Fire is a gripping political thriller with a scorching romance and a bit of paranormal. From the first page, I was hooked. The plot moves at a fast pace with twists and turns I didn't see coming. The characters are so realistically drawn, I found myself clinging to their every word. I whispered helpful hints to Emily, so she'd stay out of danger. Yes, I was that immersed in the story. " --NN Light Book Heaven
★★★★★"REIGN OF FIRE combines suspense, danger, a touch of the paranormal and enough action to keep readers turning page after page. I love a good conspiracy where money and power hide in the shadows eating away at all we hold dear. Tossing in a special twin connection makes Reign of Fire a near perfect read. Romance when you least expect it puts this one over the top
Staring into the Potomac River at the gruesome sight, Detective Ashton Frasier withdrew a pair of silicone gloves from his pocket and slipped them on then glanced toward the forensic photographer. “Poor girl.” He shook his head. “They say surgeons get used to seeing gaping wounds and gushing blood…are cops so different? When I see a murder victim, my stomach never fails to heave.”
“I don’t think anyone gets used to death or the violence left in the wake of murder.” Continuing to click pictures from various angles as he recorded the crime scene, Brad spoke without looking up. “But over time images fade…or maybe new visions just replace the old.”
Ash slid down the bank and knelt beside the young woman. After taking note of her body position, he zeroed in on the deep bruises circling her neck and frowned. The young woman’s haunting stare caused his breath to catch. “I promise you I’ll find the sick bastard who did this.” Her long brown hair floating on the surface, crusted with sludge. The blue cotton dress, now clinging to the curves of her body, her manicured fingernails, and the locket around her neck told him the woman had means. Certainly not homeless, which meant someone would be missing her sooner than later.
The corner of a soggy business card peeked from the pocket of her royal-blue coat. “Hey, Brad, come snap a close-up of this evidence.” Ash pointed to his discovery.
After snapping one more shot, Brad turned his attention to the woman’s midsection and clicked a continuous stream, before giving Ash the okay to remove the protruding card. “Any identification…a purse or wallet?”
“Not that I’ve seen so far. We’ll get some divers to scan the riverbed.” Ash inspected both sides of her hands, paying close attention to the victim’s long fingers and lightly painted nails. The jagged edges showed signs of a struggle. No wedding band or tan mark. He lifted the hand with his pen, but he saw no tissue lodged under the fingernails. The Potomac most likely washed away any DNA evidence. But the medical examiner would scrape under the tips. If even a spec of DNA existed, Quinton Banner would find a way to connect the dots.
Ash dug a small bag and sharpie from his jacket. With his pen, he edged the card from her pocket and carefully withdrew the evidence, inspecting both sides before sliding it into the plastic. Scribbling a note on the bag, he stepped away to allow access to the coroner. “Let me know the moment you ID this girl so I can contact her family. Aside from the obvious, something about this crime scene raises the hair on the back of my neck.” He zipped the seal on the evidence bag. Flattening the plastic, he squinted to read the name and number through a blur of wet scum then programmed the information into his cell phone. “Well, mister B. D. Mathis,” he whispered. “I wonder how you fit into our puzzle.”
