Synopsis: Florida investigative reporter, Whitney Steel, has lived in the shadow of her legendary father long enough. To prove herself she needs to find the “Big” story.
She found it.
Now it may kill her.
After Whitney receives a lead pointing to the world’s first cloned human, now a small child, she vows to unravel the truth. However, sifting through the facts proves to have dangerous results, including death threats and murder.
When Whitney is nearly killed, but is saved by undercover FBI Special Agent, Blake Neely, he refuses to let her get in the way of his own objective—at least not right away.
Caught in a lethal game between a billionaire obsessed with genetic perfection, his hit man’s thirst for retribution, and a Colombian drug lord fresh out of prison determined to make Blake pay for his twin brother’s death over a decade ago…
Can they save an innocent child before it’s too late?
Faced with tough choices, with deadly consequences for many—Whitney soon realizes that sometimes a story becomes more than just a story.
Review: Whitney Steel is an investigative reporter and when her ex-husband, Senator Mason Bailey, brings her information which could put her on the map, she’s ready to sniff out the truth. Her ex-husband is killed in front of her, but it doesn’t deter her in the least. All roads are leading to ShawBioGen and she heads out to Las Vegas to confront Nathan Shaw about the allegations of illegal human cloning. She meets a member of Shaw’s security, Blake Neely, who happens to be an undercover FBI agent. As Whitney digs deeper, there are attempts on her life and the bodies are piling up around her, but she’s also fighting feelings for Blake. Advanced science, murder, intrigue, romance, and revenge make up the heart of ‘Reflection’.
I think ‘Reflection’ is set on a solid premise, with plenty of action and mystery. The mystery and investigation is laid out well, with the pieces explained as they fall into place. The romance between Whitney and Blake is a little less believable because it happened so quickly and there was a bit more sex than I thought was necessary to keep the story rolling. It was a pretty quick read because I was easily engaged in the story. I think ‘Reflections’ is a good mystery with strong characters, suspense and action.
