Fans of author Diane Fanning and her Lucinda Pierce series will be excited to enter her book giveaway contest on Goodreads! From July 1 to August 1 readers will have the chance to enter the contest to win a signed copy of CHAIN REACTION.
CHAIN REACTION is the 7th book in the crime novel series featuring main character, Lt. Lucinda Pierce, the tough female cop, depicted with complex emotion and heart, overcoming her own personal distresses and skillfully performing her duties as an officer of the law.
Woven within each of the books is a glimpse into other underlying issues of importance, from domestic violence to care taking duties of an Alzheimer’s patient, and, in CHAIN REACTION, the possibility of terrorism.
One quiet Sunday morning, homicide investigator Lucinda Pierce is called out to a bomb blast at a local high school. It seems the caretaker has been fatally wounded in the explosion and there is one other unidentified body. A bomb blast points towards suspected terrorism so, much to her annoyance, Lucinda is pulled off the case and the FBI takes over. While they are determined to prove this was an act of terrorism, Lucinda is convinced otherwise and pursues her own investigation — along with FBI agent Jake Lovett, who just happens to believe she may be right.
When another high school pupil’s dead body is discovered, Lucinda is convinced she is pursuing the right path in uncovering the motivations for the bomber. However, will the competing agencies ever acknowledge her conviction and allow her to solve the case?
“Another great read. Love this series and looking forward to the next one.. Diane Fanning is one of my favorite authors.”
“Very good reading. Like the characters and the story. Couldn’t put it down. I want to read more by this author.”
