Beautiful Dangerous (Philly Heat series #4)


Hannah Patel is a Public Defender in Philadelphia, and is quite good at her job. One of her latest clients received a guilty verdict… Hannah was cold-cocked; she received a black eye along with a couple days off. Her solace is rowing. She’s athletic and strong, and often goes solo. When a mysterious note appears on her windshield she’s alarmed, knowing she’s being watched. A co-worker sees the note, and suggests she should speak to a friend who may be able to help her situation. Doyle Murphy is currently on a self-imposed hiatus from his SVU day to day job. He’s very good at criminal profiling; however, when his promise to protect another fails, he’s unsure if helping Hannah is a good idea. Can he get back in the game or should he swear off law enforcement for good?

“Beautiful Dangerous” is fast paced, high drama suspense. Ms. Flade knows exactly how to grab readers' attention from the start! The main characters earn reader’s admiration, and both play large hero and heroine roles. The family dynamics and supporting characters are a major add to the plot and the flow of the story.  The love and respect that Hannah and Doyle have towards family is a treat. This is book four in the Philly Heat series and does stand-alone, however many characters make reappearances and have woven connections throughout each book. There are many aspects to this thriller, and each is regarded thoughtfully and all are concluded eloquently. Becky Flade pens with such descriptive details that readers are given a front row seat to her magic printed on the pages!
