Book #56 - Cherry Bomb

 37938578[1] Continuing the Alex Kork saga. At the end of Fuzzy Navel, Kork kills someone, but we don’t know who it is. Jack, her mother, Latham, Phinn, Harry, all were packed up in ambulances and heading to the hospital where one was killed by Alex. In Cherry Bomb we learn who that was.

On the run, but still working on her plan, half the book follows Alex Kork around as she kidnaps people and calls Jack to try and toy with her.  We don’t know her plan, and don’t find out until near the end, but she’s working towards something that involves explosives.

Meanwhile Jack is mourning the person killed, but working hard to save the people Kork is after. She’s off the force, suspended, and also on the run as Phinn is wanted by the Feds and Jack is helping him. Harry is also helping, proving to be a more capable investigator, despite his insane and offensive manner.

In this book Jack saves a cop from Milwaukee, only to lose another person close to her. Then she finishes this chapter of her life with an incredible showdown with Alex. Not a book to be missed if you enjoy the rest in this series.
