Buddy has been called home to Freedom in Risk Factor, the fourth entry in the series. Buddy’s father, Freedom’s Sheriff, wants to step down. He has ALS and a recent break-in of his home has shaken his confidence. While Buddy refuses the interim Sheriff role, he does return as a Deputy Sheriff just in time to solve a wave of break-ins and a cybercrime.
Risk Factor is a good, not great, police procedural. However, its constant harping on the “generation gap” between millennials and Gen X is just annoying. I believe it was supposed to be witty or even funny but fails epically at both. Overall, I just can’t recommend this book. 2 stars.
Thanks to Poisoned Pen Press and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
