When an aerosol bomb explodes at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, the police don’t know which of the 702 victims was the real target. Or was the target the company hosting the celebration of their IPO the following morning? When the FBI is Under Pressure, they turn to Lucas Page, invalid out of the FBI after a different explosion blew of one arm, one leg and one eye.
“I need someone who can see patterns where there aren’t any. Or identify the correct ones when there are too many.”
Lucas agrees to help. But the twists and turns of the plot will keep him, and the reader guessing until the tour de force conclusion.
When I reviewed the previous book in the series, City of Windows, I compared Lucas to Lincoln Rhyme. But now, I actually like Lucas better. He doesn’t let his difficulties stop him from living his life to the fullest. In fact, he uses his disabilities to help people.
The mystery and the race to find the bomber was thrilling. However, I found myself getting drawn more and more into the characters’ lives too. I have never heard of a thriller being called heartfelt. However, I believe that adjective applies to Under Pressure. I didn’t want my connection to Lucas and his family to end. 4.5 stars!
