Far Gone by Laura Griffin  To save her only brother, Andrea Finch must face down a criminal mastermind, the FBI, and her own demons in this thrilling novel from the author of the bestselling Tracers series.

Police detective Andrea Finch is a rising star in her department until a split-second decision derails her career. Disgraced and disillusioned, she’s on leave from her job when she gets an urgent call from her younger brother. She’d prefer to ignore his latest plea for cash, but this time instinct tells her something is very wrong. Andrea’s search for answers takes her to a dusty Texas border town where danger lurks in plain sight and nothing is quite what it seems.

FBI agent Jon North is working undercover in west Texas investigating an unsolved murder that may be linked to a broader plot. But when the evidence points to Andrea’s brother, Jon finds that persuading the stubborn cop to help will be harder than cracking his toughest case.

Andrea must find a way to do what’s right while protecting her only sibling. As the clock ticks down on a deadly plot, Andrea and Jon race to confront a heartless killer who will stop at nothing to deliver a final, terrifying message.

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
This book starts off with action from the very beginning. Its lead character is a female police detective who is on administrative leave for shooting a young man who came into a restaurant and wanted to shot his ex-girlfriend. I bring this up because in the story she is always having to go back to this incident for different reasons. She then finds out that her brother dropped out of college and is living on some ranch with someone who is a known criminal. She goes out to the ranch one night doing surveillance and after a couple of hours she goes to try to get closer she is picked up by the FBI for they have been watching the ranch for some time. They don’t want to tell her anything but she continues to be a pain and she and an agent by the name of John North become friends and start to work together. The problem with that is she does not really trust anyone and she does not think anybody is really looking at her brother as maybe a victim. The FBI agent is after the guy who owns the ranch for a couple of bombings but he does not have enough proof. This is an exciting story and one that really is believable. When she finally trusts some things start to happen. So it is a good story about you can’t do things alone and sometimes you have to ask for help and then you need to let your family members fix their own problems that they got themselves into. A good story. I got this book from net galley.
