The Story:
Four Best Friends. 
And Then One Went Missing . . . 

In college, Griffin McCray and his three best friends had their lives planned out. Griffin and Luke Gallagher would join the Baltimore Police Department, Declan Grey would head to the FBI, and Parker Mitchell would study to become a crime scene analyst. But then Luke vanished before graduation and their world--and friendships--crumbled. 

Now years later, Griffin has left the police and his friendships behind. Still trying to forget a case that went bad when he was a SWAT team sniper, he's living a quiet life as a park ranger at Gettysburg. Quiet until skeletal remains are uncovered near Little Round Top--and they aren't Civil War-era. 

Griffin just wants the case to go away, but charming forensic anthropologist Finley Scott discovers evidence pointing to the work of an expert sniper. When FBI agent Declan Grey steps in to take over the case, past and present collide. Griffin soon realizes he'll need to confront some of the darkest days of his life if he--and those he cares about--are going to escape a downward spiral of crime, danger, and murder.

My Thoughts:
You can always count on Dani Pettrey for edge of your seat Christian suspense stories. Cold Shot, while not as immediately engaging as the first book in her previous Alaskan Courage series, certainly offers that bit of danger and intrigue that is markedly Pettrey style. Murder, cover ups, human trafficking, all tied up in one cold case, weigh heavy on the backs of Griffin McCray and his law enforcement buddies. Everyone's faith in the system and in their God are tested. Ms. Pettrey certainly can pen a tale that will leave the best detective guessing till the very end just who is behind a crime. Cold Shot's heroes and heroines promise nothing but fast-paced suspense ahead for readers during the books to come in the Chesapeake Valor series. Kudos to Dani Pettrey for another series featuring sexy, strong-willed, faith driven guys to fall in love with!
