Review: Dark Territory by Susan Philpott

Dark Territory (Signy Shepherd, #2)

In her newest assignment for the Line, Signy Shepherd embarks on a rescue mission to save Lizzy Stone and her baby boy in Susan Philpott’s heart-racing thriller, Dark Territory.

Cut off from the Line, what will Signy Shepherd do when the very people she protects become more dangerous than the threats they’re escaping?

Signy Shepherd has spent her career with the Line, a modern underground railroad, shepherding at-risk women out of peril. When Signy takes Lizzy, a young woman desperate to save her infant son, under her protection, the case appears to be like any other. With a severe winter storm on the horizon, Signy drives Lizzy and her son out of the city. Suddenly, she finds the police hot on their tail, and when Lizzy’s erratic behavior propels them into further danger, Signy begins to suspect that her new ward is not the victim she claims to be.

Meanwhile, Signy’s PTSD-stricken mentor, Grace, investigates Lizzy’s husband. But Lizzy’s husband is hiding secrets of his own, and soon Grace finds herself out of her depth. As the treacherous blizzard closes in, the entire operation spirals out of control. Isolated and relying on nothing but her instincts, Signy is confronted with a choice that will force her to risk not only her own life, but those of the people she cares about most.

Expertly plotted and featuring a fiery protagonist, Dark Territory is a taut, high-speed thriller about a young woman who will stop at nothing to save the people she loves.
 

My Review

Dark Territory (Signy Shepherd, #2)Dark Territory by Susan Philpott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I was sent an ARC copy of this book from Simon & Schuster Canada.
I really enjoyed this book. I hadn't read the first book in the series, so I was a little lost in the beginning, as there were a lot of flashbacks to the first story, but once I got into the plot of this book I just became immersed in this amazing thriller. Fast paced action throughout. Twist and turns every other page. Really keeps you guessing. You think you've figured things out when you're thrown for a loop again. Great writing, great characters. Susan Philpott can hold her own with the best thriller writers writing today. I highly recommend this book.
