Dead Fall by Nancy Mehl {Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

He has a deadly endgame in mind--and he's already chosen each victim . . . including her.

After putting to rest the most personal case of her career, Alex Donovan is ready to move on and focus on her future at the FBI's elite Behavioral Analysis Unit. When the BAU cofounder is discovered dead in his hotel room, the FBI is called in to work on the strangest case they've ever faced. How do you find a killer who murders his victims from a distance?

When it becomes clear that the killer is targeting agents in Alex's unit, they are ordered into lockdown, sheltered in the dorms at Quantico. Alex bunks with controversial agent Kaely Quinn, and as they work together, Alex discovers in Kaely the role model she's never had--despite being warned away.

As Alex questions the type of agent she wants to become, things get personal when the brilliant killer strikes close to home. Now Alex will do anything to find the killer--even at the risk of her own life.

Nancy Mehl (www.nancymehl.com) is the author of more than 40 books and a Christy Award and Carol Award finalist as well as the winner of an ACFW Book of the Year award. Her short story, Chasing Shadows, was in the USA Today bestselling Summer of Suspense
 anthology. Nancy writes from her home in Missouri, where she lives with her husband, Norman, and their puggle, Watson.

Dead Fall is the second book in The Quantico Series by Nancy Mehl. You might have a better understanding of the dynamics of the team, and Alex's backstory by reading the previous book. This book also brings back Kaely Quinn from The Kaely Quinn Profiler series, and again I think you'll get the fullest appreciation if you are familiar with that series too. That being said, I do think you could still enjoy this book without having read any of those too. It's not 100% necessary, but certainly very helpful as both Kaely and Alex have rather unique and complex stories that you'll learn much more about there! 

This was a fantastic read, just as I have come to expect from Nancy Mehl's novels. It was action packed from start to finish and kept you guessing right through to the end. I did start to suspect who would ultimately be revealed as the bad guy fairly early on... but there was still enough of a question to keep me wondering if it could really be so. I truly enjoyed trying to figure it all out. There was definitely a spiritual aspect that you don't see a lot in this genre, and it worked well within this story. Overall, it was a really good read. If you enjoy Christian suspense (with just a hint of romance), this is certainly one to add to your TBR.
