The Wrong Victim by Allison Brennan



A bomb explodes on a sunset charter cruise out of Friday Harbor at the height of tourist season and kills everyone on board. Now this fishing and boating community is in shock and asking who would commit such a heinous crime—the largest act of mass murder in the history of the San Juan Islands.

Forensic profilers know there are two types of domestic terrorists: those who use violence to instill fear for political purposes but stop at murder because it detracts from the cause, and those who crave attention and are willing to maim and murder for their own agenda

Accused of putting profits before people after leaking fuel that caused a massive fish kill, the West End Charter company may itself have been the target. But as special agent Matt Costa, detective Kara Quinn and the rest of the FBI team begin their investigation, they discover that plenty of people might have wanted someone dead on that yacht. Now they must track down who is responsible and stop them before they strike again.

Available Today – April 26, 2022!

The 3rd novel in the Quinn & Costa series, however I would say that the novel focused more on the whole FBI Mobile Response Team and not just Kara Quinn and Matt Costa. I liked that the reader got to see more of how the team worked and each member of the team. Most mysteries are focused on an individual, so it was a nice change to have the focus be on the team.

I’m not going to share any spoilers, but I wasn’t a fan on one of the opening chapters. I felt that it took away from the suspense of the novel, since I was so sure that it was going to be the motive for the crime.

The novel wasn’t so straightforward and there were multiple layers of the mystery. I was surprised on some parts that had happened and who was responsible.

3 calculators out of a potential 5. Definitely going to continue on with the series!

Thank you to Netgallery and Harlequin Trade Publishing, MIRA for an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
