Ricochet is a compelling all engrossing story that includes murder, terrorism, illegal immigration and espionage all rolled into a powerful engaging story line.  If you are looking for a fast paced story that will have you hooked and glued to each page then look no further, Ricochet will have you turning page after page from the beginning to the end.  The story begins as Shelia and her friend Margaret go shopping at the mall before Shelia starts her academy training for the FBI.  While Shelia and her best friend are at the mall they stop to grab a bite to eat, while standing in line Shelia becomes suspicious of a someone who is acting strangely and then there is an explosion and Shelia is knocked out.  When she awakes she finds herself buried and is short of breath due to the fire from the explosion, as for Margaret she is not as lucky, she is in a coma.

Later a reporter comes to Shelia and she informs her that she will never forget that face, a terrorist amongst us, and a face that she will soon wish she had not seen.  Her talking with the reporter has now put Shelia in more danger and it could mean life or death.  Shelia joins forces with her instructor Steve Moran to piece together the events and to solve the case, but what she finds leads to more questions and unanswered questions, and the trail that may uncover that her parents deaths were no accident.

Where will all this lead Shelia?  Will she find herself involved in another attack?  Will she find the truth behind her parents deaths?  You will have to pick up a copy of Ricochet to find out the answers and you will be glad you did, this is a great story that is highly recommended.  Fans of suspense, mystery and action will be raving about this book.  I look forward to reading more from this highly talented author who is a great storyteller.
