Cartel, Corruption, and Chaos ..Can a Ghost Tame Her Rage To Exact Revenge?

If you enjoyed Reign of Fire, you’ll love Deep State Mysteries Book 2—The List: Alyssa’s Revenge. The List picks up after Reign of Fire ends, but the story is definitely a stand alone. In Reign of Fire, unease floods Emily’s veins and she worries about her twin sister’s safety. When her brother, Wyatt, delivers the horrible news of her sister’s murder, Emily’s life spins out of control.

She flies to DC and teams up with Detective Ash to bring her sister’s murderer to justice. The more they uncover, the more she realizes she and Ash are in mortal danger. The Deep State has infiltrated the American government, and they will stop at nothing to cover their tracks.

Though psychic twin  Emily trusts her gut, her sister’s spirit reaches out to guide her, even if it means right into Ash’s embrace. When Emily helps Ash with the investigation, she sets herself in the crosshairs of the Deep State and their long list of murders. 

Reign of Fire is a gripping political thriller with a scorching romance plus a bit of paranormal thrown in. From the first page, readers are hooked. The premise of the Deep State is ripped from today’s headlines and if you look close enough, it rings true to what is happening with other governments.

The plot moves at a fast pace with twists and turns you won’t see coming. As N.N. Light’s Book Haven reviewed, “the characters are so realistically drawn, I found myself clinging to their every word. I whispered helpful hints to Emily so she’d stay out of danger. Yes, I was that enthralled.

The satisfying ending still kept the storyline open for the next book in the series. Casi McLean is a superb suspense author who blends suspense, romance and paranormal so seamlessly, the reader doesn’t even notice it. A political thriller not to be missed!”

With that in mind, The List begins with brother Wyatt tormented by his injuries in Afghanistan, and the love of his life he left behind. Alyssa’s death only added to his pain. I’ll let another reader, Aaron P. Lazar, give you insight into book 2. 

The List: Alyssa’s Revenge by USA Today bestselling author, Casi McClean, is the second book in the Deep State Mysteries series. Set in the Washington DC area with far reaching elements that end up in Morocco, this fast paced novel, like book one in the series, is also part political thriller, part steamy romance, and part paranormal.

Let me say this right at the start – I loved this book! Talk about edge of your seat suspense…I couldn’t put it down.

We get to become reacquainted with several characters who were featured in book 1, including the fiery protagonist, Emily Rose, dynamic detective Ashton Frasier, Emily’s murdered twin sister Alyssa, who appears as a spirit, her amazing war veteran brother, Wyatt, and the brave Pets for Vets dog, Duke. In this second book in the series, we also get to delve deeper into veteran Harper Drake’s mind and heart, and her relationship with Wyatt. I really enjoyed this strong woman’s character.

As I mentioned in my review of book 1, although it wasn’t the primary theme in this story, I absolutely love the elements of the wounded warrior and the dog who has become an integral part of the series. He’s a keeper.

A deep sense of patriotism rings through the pages. Our war veterans, their siblings, and the spirit of Alyssa become integral in saving the lives of many children who are in terrible peril in The List.

From page one—where the young girl Hanna escapes from her horrendous kidnapper’s lair, leaving a frightened sister behind, but sadly unable to free her—your heart will pound out of your chest with suspense. The horror of the bad guys is tenable and will shoot shivers down your spine. And what he wants to do to these innocent children will make you sick.

But our heroes become quickly involved, thanks to Alyssa’s spirit, and now the children have a chance!
