Collateral Damage by Frederick Lee Brooke

Collateral Damage
Frederick Lee Brooke 

About the book: 

When Annie Ogden’s ex-boyfriend Michael Garcia reappears, she has to confront a lie dating back to her time in Iraq. Will she go back to hot, passionate Michael, who has developed a disturbing interest in meth, or stick with her pudgy PI partner and fiancé, Salvatore? The calculus changes when Michael is arrested for murder. When Salvatore refuses to help investigate, Annie is forced to try to find the killer herself. Meanwhile her sister’s creepy husband, Todd, is making more of an ass of himself than usual. Annie's problems with three obsessive men suddenly pale in significance when she realizes the killer has set his sights on her. Having changed his mind about helping her, Salvatore finds himself in a desperate race against time, the only man capable of finding the killer before it’s too late. Get Collateral Damage through Amazon. 


This novel will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. It is action packed and very well paced. There isn't a "slow" page in the entire book. 

The characters are very well described and well written. 

I really didn't like Todd at all though. He made me want to hit him in the head with something at every mention of his name (haha).

Annie was an okay main character. She could have been a little more sure of herself but over all I liked her. 

Michael wasn't my favorite character either. I don't know it it was because of the whole "meth" issue or what but he really rubbed me the wrong way all together. 

I have to claim Sal as my favorite character in this one. He's really down to earth. No he's not the hot super-model sexy guy most authors put in their novels to win the girl over but he's "REAL".
