Fatal Loyalty - Review

My Review:

Just like the title of the book implies, Fatal Loyalty by Sue Duffy, defines this perfectly. Andie Ryborg is a young woman in college attempting to live an ordinary life like everyone else her age. However Andie isn't your typical ordinary girl, she is the daughter of Attorney General of Miami, Tony Ryborg in the midst of his latest political campaign. Only is not just the life in the public eye that keeps Andie from being ordinary, it's the fact that her father is also not very popular among the drug lords that he is in the process of running out of Miami. His life is been threatened on a number of occassions and rather than just back off and go into seclusion, he is more determined than every to make the neighborhoods of Miami safer.

Since Tony Ryborg won't take a subtle hint to back down, Leo Francini is about to make sure his current drug business stays intact even if it means that Andie Ryborg needs to be used in the process. Evan Markham becomes Leo's newest thug to make sure that his message to Tony is perfectly clear this time. However Evan is bound and determined to make sure that Andie isn't going to be a victim if he can help it. Leo has killed too many people and if he can save one, Andie is going to be it.

The book is a perfect blend of the Sopranos meets CSI Miami and it's really a great story woven through all the interesting characters you are introduced to. In the midst of this story, Andie and Evan turn to God looking for His answer to how to survive in the drug ring that has Miami captured by crime and power. Will they find the answers they seek? I received this book from Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review and easily rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars.

Where do you run when you know you cannot hide?

Andie Ryborg has nowhere else to go. Her father's campaign for governor and his aggressive war on drugs has chased her from their family home. Drawn to Miami's exotic Coconut Grove, Andie hopes to find a quiet refuge where she can discover herself apart from the public eye. But even in that seclusion, even with an officer assigned to protect her, Andie's privacy has been violated. Someone is watching

Evan Markham's entire life has been a tug-of-war between what is and what could be. He is drawn to a life that is beyond his reach and emotions have clouded his judgment. Evan knows that earning someone's trust isn't easy, especially when he plans to break it. But in the secret corridors of the criminal underworld, he knows what must be done, and he is determined to see it through. Whatever the cost

When enemies close in, a sudden turn of events leaves them both questioning. Where is God in all of this? Who is this enigmatic stranger who offers to help? They both know their lives are in danger. But what about their hearts?
