Breaking Point (Lucy Kincaid Novels)
By Allison Brennan
In book #13 of the Lucy Kincaid series, FBI Agent, Lucy surreptitiously is assisting RCK (Rogan-Caruso-Kincaid Protective Services). Married only a few months, Lucy is helping her husband, one of the partners in RCK without the Bureau's knowledge. They are desperately trying to locate Bella Caruso, sister to J.T. Caruso, another agency partner.
Bella endured a horrific background where she ended up living a life of prostitution after her father sold her to pay off a debt. Able to break free thanks to J.T., she became a cop later getting into business with her brother. Now she is posing as a doctor who lost her career due to shady dealings. She is hoping to infiltrate a human trafficking ring and save girls who are being put up for sale as sex slaves.
Bella has been incognito much longer than should have been necessary and J.T. is concerned when after saving some women, she appears to have gone missing. In addition, an officer she was working with was brutally tortured and dumped on the side of a deserted road. Bella promised she would escape the traffickers once she finds Hope, a young woman abducted from her grandparents. But where is she?
Things become overly tense as Bella tries not to blow her cover. Meanwhile, Lucy's new boss is demeaning and out to get her. She assigns Lucy a desk job, which she hates by covering cold cases. But this does not deter Lucy from searching for Bella though her every move is being scrutinized.
A character-driven tale of riveting suspense and fast-paced drama, the two female protagonists are shown to be forces to reckon with. Though Breaking Point is part of a series, it stands on its own. The prose, masterful and well-written would make one eager to read the previously-released issues.
