Point of Danger by Irene Hannon is the beginning of a new series, Triple Threat, about three sisters. The middle sister, Eve Reilly, is not in law enforcement, instead, she faces down societal ills through her radio program.
While Eve tries to be fair to both sides, she is unabashedly politically conservative and garners many enemies because of her strong opinions. Hate mail is something she shrugs off. A ticking box on her porch isn’t.
Police detective Brent Lange is the responding detective, launching him into a puzzle he has to solve before someone kills the radio personality he’s finding himself drawn to despite his best efforts.
I’m a fan of Irene Hannon’s writing. And have been looking forward to this new series since I learned it would be about three sisters. I found Point of Danger unusual in that it had such a polarizing character in Eve. If you agree with her politics, it’s very easy to root for her. If you disagree… Eve still seems a likable enough character despite her views. Either way, we can all understand why her strong opinions get her into hot water. Honestly, I think Irene Hannon did a superb job of making Eve’s views Eve’s alone. In other words, the book is not a political tome. It addresses a few political topics, such as abortion, but entirely from Eve’s perspective. In fact, we don’t learn Brent’s political leanings at all. In my opinion, this is a nuance difficult to master and Point of Danger did it well. My one disappointment was not seeing a positive character from the opposing view point, especially one who Eve respected.
If you’re looking for a romantic suspense with a political thread, definitely pick up a copy of Point of Danger. Irene Hannon’s writing is so good, the story will draw you in until you’re trying to figure out the puzzle alongside Brent before the danger costs Eve her life.
