Paramedic Zoe Chambers and the rest of rural Monongahela County’s EMS and fire personnel are used to wading into the middle of trouble to rescue the sick and the injured. But when someone with an ax to grind seeks retribution by staging accident scenes and gunning down the first responders, Zoe finds herself forced to not only treat her own brethren of the front lines, but also, in her role as deputy coroner, seek out whoever is killing her friends.

At the same time, Vance Township Police Chief Pete Adams races to track down a gun, a mysterious all-terrain vehicle, and the sniper before Zoe goes back on duty, placing herself—and Pete—firmly in the gunman’s crosshairs.

Dollycas’s Thoughts
First responders are getting shot at and killed in Monongahela County! And Zoe or Pete could be next!Dashofy’s story is hot and suspenseful right out of the gate. Zoe and Pete are trying to more their relationship forward but is sure isn’t easy. The day starts out with both of them at a fire arms training seminar and that was pretty chilling in itself, but when Pete gets a call that two paramedics have been gunned down after arriving at an accident scene things get downright scary. Pete and Zoe head to the scene and she deals with the lost and injury of two of her friends and Pete gets to work. The gunman is still at large.

The author proceeds to take us on a wild trip as EMS and Police and Fire still have to respond to calls not knowing if they will remain safe after they arrive. Meanwhile Police Chief Pete Adams and County Detective Wayne Baronick are trying to keep them all safe and catch a killer.

These characters are truly extraordinary. Zoe is a strong, independent, woman, unafraid to put herself in harm’s way if it means saving someone she loves. She is smart and a critical thinker but she has a huge heart and that can get her into trouble. Pete is the same, strong and independent but he is not as trusting as Zoe, which makes him a great cop. Together they make a great team and a force to be reckoned with.

This story has a ripped from the headlines feel because of what is going on in the United States today. This story is believable and alarming as it seems we have a shooting happening somewhere each and every day. The author brings it all alive with her words and keeps the suspense level high for most of the story. So many people in danger. So many suspects to be located and questioned.  So many twists before the big dramatic ending.  I think I read this story at breakneck speed but I was still absorbing every word.

Each of these stories is better than the last. They all walk that fine line between a cozy mystery and a thriller novel. Dashofy writes it that way perfectly. Small town, wonderful characters, and the main plot and the subplots woven together with an expert hand. Growing up in a small town with family and friends on police and fire departments this story really struck a cord with me. They truly do put themselves out there to save people never really knowing what they will find when they arrive on the scene.

I have given the previous 2 books in the series “Paradise” rating, more than 5 stars. This one is as good and maybe better. I may have to add a whole new category just for Annette Dashofy. 🙂
