About the Book:
When elite members of the military are murdered on the streets of Washington, DC, FBI Special Agent Bailey Ryan and NCIS Special Agent Marco Agostini must work together to bring the perpetrator to justice. Unfortunately, all evidence points to a Navy SEAL sniper whom Bailey refuses to believe is guilty.
When Bailey and Marco start to connect the dots between the victims, including a link to a powerful defense contractor, they wonder if there’s a deeper cover-up at play. Then Bailey is targeted, and it becomes clear that someone is willing to kill to keep their dark secrets.
With the stakes getting higher by the moment in a twisted conspiracy, there’s a rush against the clock to determine whom they can really trust. As allies turn to enemies, the biggest secret yet to be uncovered could be the end of all of them.
After enjoying Rachel Dylan’s Atlanta Justice series, I was excited to dig into a new one. The Capital Intrigue series is one that will follow three female friends who met while in law school and joined different governmental agencies. We are introduced to each of them in End Game, but it centers mostly around Bailey.
This novel was very easy for me to get into and I was able to picture the setting as if I were standing right beside the characters. The intensity was palpable with a clear sense of urgency. I liked that although there were twists and turns, the content kept the plot moving which kept me invested in the story.
The pace of this novel was well laid out. The initial crime left the team with a lot of questions but throughout their investigation they picked up puzzle pieces along the way that pushed them forward. As some of them start to fit together, you’re still wondering what the big picture is, knowing the solution can’t be far from your grasp.
And now it’s time to sit and impatiently wait for the next book in the series to release. If you haven’t picked up any of Rachel Dylan’s books yet I highly recommend them. Just don’t start them at night…or you might be up for a while 😉
