Even though Heather Graham has written dozens of novels, this was my first time reading one of her novels. I was really interested when I was reading the description since I find books, especially mysteries, involving cults to be fascinating.
Danger in Numbers was good and I enjoyed reading it, but sadly there was nothing that stood out to me. I found the two lead characters to be pretty bland and it was pretty obvious early on what would happen to these two.
The mystery was lacking. There were no surprising twists that occurred. I was hoping that something would happen to change the direction of the novel, but sadly it didn’t. With so many mysteries novels out there and even mysteries involving cults, Danger in Numbers just doesn’t stand out.
3 calculators out of a potential 5. Run of the mill mystery involving a cult.
