Dangerous Passage by Lisa Harris

She's dedicated her life to ending violence. But has she moved too deep into a treacherous world?

When two Jane Does are killed on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia, detective and behavioral specialist Avery North discovers they share something in common—a magnolia tattoo on their shoulders.  Suspecting a serial killer, Avery joins forces with medical examiner Jackson Bryant to solve the crimes and prevent another murder.  As they venture deep into a sinister criminal world, Avery and Jackson are taken to the very edge of their abilities—and their hearts.

Dangerous Passage exposes a fully realized and frightening world where every layer peeled back reveals more challenges ahead.  You’ll be hooked from the start.

My favourite genre is fantasy, but mystery/suspense is a close second. I love it when I have my fingers curled around the binding of a book so intense that my dinner could be burning, an alarm blaring, and maybe a semi-truck coming through the front wall of my house and I would be completely oblivious. These types of books are few and far between, but they're out there. 

Dangerous Passage wasn't a white-knuckled, sucking-air-between-your-teeth kind of read, but I still really enjoyed it. Detective Avery North is a strong woman. She's survived the death of her husband and brother in the line of duty, and is now maintaing a career and trying to raise her 12 year old daughter.  As if that isn't enough, she finds herself hunting down a serial killer that is tangled up in the terrifying world of human trafficking. 

Lisa Harris braves the turbulent waters of human-trafficking to shed light on an often avoided topic during this first instalment of what is sure to be a great crime series. I will certainly be reading the next addition to the "Southern Crimes" series.
