The Counsel of the Cunning by Steven C. Harms November 8 - December 3, 2021 Virtual Book Tour Synopsis: Roger Viceroy faces a return to the FBI and a life he vacated long ago, until a knock on his front door announces the presence of billionaire and former U.S. Senator, Jürgen Sandt. The past has come back to rear its ugly head. Sandt stands on his threshold for a reason: a decade prior the senator’s only son disappeared into the jungles of Guatemala, and Sandt has come to convince Viceroy that further investigation is now necessary. A package left mysteriously outside the family estate, opens the door to the possibility that his son is still very much alive. Viceroy and his team agree to take on the hunt.

Right Behind You by N.L. Hinkens My rating: 4 of 5 stars NL Hinkens has been one of my favorite domestic suspense authors since I discovered her last year. She has such a way of hooking you in and not letting you go until the very end. This book was no different. I admittedly fell for a lot of her red herrings, which is a credit to her impeccable writing. I couldn't put it down and wanted to see what would happen next. As usual, it was a fast-paced read that blends action, dialogue, and thrills. My only slight criticism was the "culprit." I felt like it came too much out of left field and wasn't set up as well as some of her other endings. However, it wasn't enough for me to dislike the book and I would still recommend it to anyone who loves thrillers. Needless to say, I'll be back for more. Until then, I'll be right behind you. ARC given to me by author in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
