Rising Danger

Title: Rising Danger
Author: Jerusha Agen
Publisher: Love Inspired Trade
Release Date: May 25, 2021
Genre: Christian, Romantic Suspense

It’s up to a K-9 handler and her canine partner to stop a bomber before it’s too late. 

Someone’s planting explosives on dams in the Twin Cities, and Bristol Bachmann and her bomb-sniffing dog must move quickly to find them before everything ends up underwater. That means relying on the dams’ supervisor—an ex-boyfriend Bristol never thought she’d see again. Hopefully Remington Jones has grown up from the rakish charmer she knew in her academy days. Because lives now depend entirely on them… 

It’s an environmental terrorist who wants the dams gone, and his bid to set the waters free has lethal consequences. When he sees Bristol and her K-9 working to stop him, he sets his sights on them. Can they evade him in a lethal game of cat and mouse and protect the cities from devastating destruction before the clock runs out?

Chaos assaulted her as soon as she opened the door. For a moment, just one second, Bristol Bachmann wanted to retreat into the Jeep and shut out the sounds of panic and terror that threatened to conjure the same emotions in her.

Her hiking boots landed on the faded blacktop of the park­ing lot as she forced away memories that clustered like a mob of shadows at the back of her mind. She shot a glance at the Minnesota Falls Visitor Center as she moved to the back of her Jeep.

People poured out of the tourist complex, exiting the main entrance in semiorganized fashion and then scattering, some yelling and screaming.

Flashing lights of police squads and fire rescue trucks painted a dizzying spectacle of color against the backdrop of gray, cloudy sky.

She swiped her hands together, sweat dampening her palms as if this were her first bomb threat. But symptoms like that had disappeared after her first day with the Minneapolis Police Department’s bomb squad over two years ago. She tried to ignore the real reason for her unusual nerves as she opened the liftgate and reached inside to release Toby from his crate.

The seventy-five-pound black Labrador retriever dropped out the back to the pavement of the parking lot, wriggling as she checked his harness. She straightened the harness for his comfort, the Phoenix K-9 Security and Detection Agency’s logo resting on both his shoulders, along with Explosives De­tection identification and a warning: Do Not Pet. Toby panted and pranced around her, more than ready to get to work.

She snatched the fanny pack that housed his necessities and the essential tennis ball attached to a rope. She snapped the pack around her waist under her open windbreaker as she and Toby hurried toward the brick-and-concrete visitor center, positioned above the famous Minnesota Falls.

Crowds still rushed through the glass doors at the front of the building, their faces a study in terror.

Her stomach clenched.

If there was a bomb here, as the anonymous threat had in­dicated, there were a lot of people who could get hurt if it detonated. The $42 million complex constructed last year had been built to make Minnesota Falls a tourist destination. But today, it seemed only to have created an easy target for maximum casualties.

The sound of water rushing over the falls reached her ears, swishing the anxiety in her stomach. Her gaze was pulled to the Mississippi River. She could see it clearly to the left of the building.

The water was choppy, moving fast and disappearing be­hind the building where it crashed over the Minnesota Falls Dam with audible power.

Her pulse ratcheted up. The water level looked higher than normal against the banks. They’d had so much rain this spring.

If a bomb detonated here, now…

It wouldn’t. Toby would find it.
