Rainey Days introduces us to the aloof FBI agent Rainey Blue Bell. On medical leave after a life-changing encounter with a serial killer the previous year, we step into her world as she continues her fight to forget the nightmares and move on with her life. Her struggle to cope often has her looking for answers at the bottom of a tequila bottle.
We also get our first glimpse of the charming Katie Meyers who is unknowingly placed in danger, a pawn in a game where only those with the strongest will to survive have a chance.
With fast-paced action scenes and a sophisticated plot that grips the reader Ms Bradshaw has also fully fleshed out her heroes and villains. The series perfectly balances a gentle love story with the ever-present danger that shrouds Rainey.
Each novel has its own menace, its own evil lurking on the pages and as the series develops we learn more about the monsters Rainey Bell had to deal with whilst working with the BAU. We also see the supporting cast grow and evolve as we learn more about them.
The Rainey Bell Thrillers capture the imagination of the reader with such ferocity that resistance to reading the complete series to date is futile. As each book comes to an end Ms Bradshaw leaves us with the need to reach for the next instalment.
