The Escape, by Lisa Harris (Revell, 2020)
When the private plane transporting two dangerous prisoners to trial goes down, US Marshals Madison James and Jonas Quinn must recapture the surviving prisoner before he kills again.
The chase takes them through some remote (and beautiful) country as well as city streets and back alleys as their quarry stays one step ahead.
Madison and Jonas have met before—Jonas trained her when she first joined law enforcement—but this is their first time working together and they know nothing about one another on a personal level. Neither wants a romantic relationship, but this mission plants the seeds of a romance that will develop over the course of the series.
It’s a fast-paced, high-stakes story that doesn’t let up until the very end and definitely sets up interest to read the sequel.
The Escape is book 1 in Lisa Harris’s US Marshals series. Book 2, The Chase, is now available. For more about the author and her work, visit lisaharriswrites.com.
