APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Ruthless Cross is a romantic thriller that doesn’t skimp on either the sparks or the thrills. When FBI agent Flynn MacKenzie’s best friend, federal judge Arthur Corbyn, is murdered at a swanky art gallery opening, Flynn teams up with Corbyn’s headstrong stepdaughter, Callie Harper, to track down the killer. The chemistry between Flynn and Callie propels this twisty, fast-paced thriller as they’re sent reeling by shocking revelations, not to mention their burning chemistry. Narrator Amy McFadden leads us through the pair’s adventure with a subtle touch of hardboiled grit. Between the murder, the romance, and the secrets that cut all the way into Flynn’s own past, this romantic thriller—part of Barbara Freethy’s Off the Grid series—is the perfect listen for a night in.
