Rhys MacLeod is a warrior first and a hacker second. Preserving the balance of power among supernatural beings is his prime directive, as well as keeping it far from human eyes. The discovery of a man killed by magical force on a Chicago street lands him on an op he didn’t expect. He’s good, but solving this crime requires a call to the best of the best.
Parker Black of Titan Group never met a network he couldn’t infiltrate. Along with Titan team member Locke Oliver and Megan, a scientist who witnessed the murder, they uncover a maze of encrypted files and unethical DNA manipulation.
Rhys is duty bound to keep all supernatural details hidden from his human friends, so identifying the killer becomes more complicated when clues indicate the perp isn’t human. And when the murderer shows up at their location, every second counts before its true nature is revealed.
I love the Watcher series by this author. Getting to see Rhys and Zana? Loved it. The plot is really good and who thought that a combination of paranormal romance crossing over with the Titan series romantic suspense would work? Well it worked exceptionally well.
While Rhys and Jude are on patrol they hear sirens driving to a crime scene as they don’t get involved with human matters they ignore it at first but then change their minds to go and check it out. What they find is shocking, Scott Dayton of Dayton Diagnostics is dead. The type of death leads more to the paranormal side of things. Where to normal humans these things can’t be explained.
Rhys is a hacker but there are some things that even he can’t hack in to. This calls for a specialist. A human specialist which means the Watchers are walking a fine line on this one.
“You worked with this guy?” “Yup. He’s the tech expert of his group. Bunch of human dudes, mostly ex-military. They do shit the government won’t own up to or has too much red tape in the way to get done fast enough.” “Oh my god. That sounds exciting. Wait. That sounds like what you do.” She frowned-“Well that is if you had a government.”
I was a bit antsy and thought I would get any romance but we saw Rhys with Zana. And Locke from Titan came along for the ride and met the lovely doctor Meghan who works at Dayton. I was proven wrong there is a balance between the romance and the suspense as well as the action that is perfect.
The plot was interesting, exciting and unique. Project Tashuri. It is all very unclear to begin with and but the more Megan finds out by taking a look at the data the weirder it becomes. Combining blood, DNA samples, hair samples etc.to change a human to force the mating bond. Luckily enough for the Watchers they all think that he is certifiable and no one believes it.
I need more Watchers please Ms. Kay. A must read in my opinion.
