REVIEW: Nail-biting! I’m surprised I have any nails left after finishing “When They Find Us” by Jenifer Ruff. This is the third book in the series with a fourth to come. I believe they can be read as stand alone because I have not read the first two yet and didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything. You can mark my words that I am going to find the time in my schedule to read them.
This is a great story of survival after a plane crash in Greenland during the winter. There are seven survivors. One of them is an FBI agent so, you know they pull out all the stops to investigate their whereabouts and what happened to the plane. There were a few characters I was rooting for and a couple I didn’t care for. That’s normal. I think there is always one character I don’t like. Maybe that’s just me.
I read one other book by Jenifer and that was a winner too. I’m not usually into espionage and FBI but, she really knows how to pull off a good story and I haven’t minded. In fact, you can tell I loved both of her books. If you haven’t read her books yet and are looking for a new series or author, I highly recommend Jenifer’s books.
I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest review. I’m glad I did! Thank you, Jenifer.
SYNOPSIS: A commercial airliner disappears without a trace. Stranded, injured, and freezing, what happens to the survivors next will haunt them forever.
After breaking up a sex trafficking ring, FBI Agent Victoria Heslin wants nothing more than to visit the rescue shelter she sponsors, a trip that also offers a much-needed European vacation and a chance to figure out her new relationship with Ned. Comfortable in first class, she drifts off—only to be shocked awake when her plane crashes.
Lost in an empty, frozen wasteland, Victoria and a few other survivors battle extreme temperatures, as each day brings more tragedy. One by one, the desperate group is winnowed down. The remaining passengers must decide if they’ll stay with the wreck, waiting to be found, or brave the harsh elements and venture out in search of help.
When Agent Dante Rivera learns of Victoria’s fate, he puts all his energy and expertise into finding her plane, which seems to have vanished from existence. As he unravels a technological mystery and layers of scheming, he fears his worst nightmare will be realized: that he won’t find his coworker and friend alive.
