Free Fall

Publisher: Bethany House
Series: The Quantico Files
ISBN: 9780764237652

I was excited to finish The Quantico Files series by Nancy Mehl! There's been a lot of anticipation for Free Fall. The publisher sent me the book for review on behalf of the author!


The closer she comes to the truth, the deadlier her chase gets. 

FBI behavioral analyst Alex Donovan and her colleague Logan Hart have been called upon to write a profile for a missing woman, but a little digging quickly turns up more disappearances in Virginia with the same physical description. 

Alex is in a race against the clock to rescue the missing victims, so when the UNSUB makes demands of her in exchange for information, Alex takes the bait. But when her life is put in jeopardy, Logan must do whatever it takes to track them down before time runs out.

Alex works to think one step ahead of the suspect, but the more Logan and the BAU learn about the serial kidnapper, the more they fear Alex may not make it out alive.

My Review:

Well, if it's any indication of how deep I was in to Free Fall, I stayed up so late reading that I could barely keep my eyes open.

This was a twist on a movie I never saw in the theaters because I can only handle so much. In fact, I was so engrossed in this story that I woke up in a bit of a panic on the second night! The storyline was definitely getting into my psyche. lol

I really enjoyed, once again, how the author gives us a glimpse into how profilers work. I can't even imagine what it's like living in their brains! Trying to work out all of the small bits of information they have to figure out who the bad person is is fascinating. Alex seemed more "centered" in book three. I think she'd been through so much and grown as a character that now in book three she seems to have "normalized" as much as she can. I thought Logan's storyline was an interesting one as well.

Needless to say, the storyline was creepy. I actually guessed what was going on not too far into the story, but trust me, it didn't make it any less nail biting. There were a couple uses of God's name that I felt were in "vain" and not necessary. On the opposite end of the spectrum though, I loved that the characters would pray together, individually, and talk openly about their faith. I'm always thankful when an author doesn't shy away from adding that strong element to the story!

The end happened way too quickly for me. I would've liked another half of a chapter or so to get a bit more closure or understanding or maybe even a little more of a struggle where the bad guy revealed more about his craziness. I don't know, it just ended so fast I wasn't quite prepared.

And then there's another ending which I felt, after three books, I would've liked to be more of a fly on the wall for the truths to come out instead of having it explained to me in just a paragraph or two.

That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed the story as well as the entire series! I look forward to more suspense/thrillers from the author!
