“Heart and action” – 5 Stars
In Golden City, New York, former teen assassin Jessie Tacket secretly prepares to face the rogue general who trained her and who will kill anyone to recapture her. Jessie’s growing cache of weapons and her renewed combat training are a start, but she lacks computer access to covertly track her nemesis—a situation she must remedy quickly. As Jessie’s secrets expand, her relationship with her new guardian strains, but this is Jessie’s fight. She will be ready for the general. She’s the only one who can stop him.
Jessie’s new guardian, Detective Victoria Tacket, also has a secret: she’s hunting the general who murdered Jessie’s parents and destroyed her childhood. Despite the teen’s warnings to stay away from him, Vick plots a course to track down and arrest the girl’s tormentor. However, a homicide and a burglary threaten to not only derail Vick’s efforts, but also expose Jessie’s skills.
At a time when they need a united defense, secrets drive a wedge between Vick and Jessie. They must find a way to bridge their divide before they’re ripped apart.
Secrets is the fourth book in a fast-paced, 7-book adventure. Fans of reluctant superheroes and female detectives will enjoy this young adult suspense series.
