The Killing Storm
Kathryn Casey
Minotaur Hardcover

      When four-year-old Joey disappears in a downtown park, not only was his mother not looking at him, but she seems to be acting entirely wrong for a woman who just lost a child.  When she fails a polygraph test, the FBI is certain she played a part but cannot prove it. 
      Meanwhile, Texas Ranger Sarah Armstrong is investigating a series of deaths of livestock with a strange symbol carved in their carcasses that date back to superstitions before the Civil War. With a hurricane on the way, Sarah and her FBI boyfriend find that the two cases are colliding in downtown Houston, and they are on a race to save Joey at risk of their own lives.
      This was a fast-paced book with amazing characters and an author who truly knows how to write suspense.  Sarah Armstrong is a great example of a modern strong woman and single mother who stands by her convictions, and yet is both likable and humanly flawed.  As this is the first book I have read by this author, I can't wait to look up what else she has written.
