Don’t  Look Away (Veronica Sloan) by Leslie A. Kelly

Book Description
Publication Date: May 1, 2013

Detective Veronica Sloan isn’t shocked by much. But even she is stunned by the brutality of the crime that took place in the White House basement. This case is making waves throughout Washington, and when the killer targets Ronnie, she has to admit she needs the help of FBI Agent Jeremy Sykes.

Sloan and Sykes know the victim was a participant in a top-secret experiment. They've been training for just this kind of case, waiting to use their special skills, anxious to learn if a recording device implanted in a victim’s head can help solve their murder….before the killer strikes again.

My review

Seldom have I come across a book with such a hook for a start.  A victim.  A killer and no way out.  What more do you need?
Well then you need Veronica.  A kick butt heroin with drive, determination and a partner to die for.  The thing is she has a crush on a fellow trainee, Sykes --  whom she has not seen for  months.  When said FBI agent is allocated to the case the sparks begin to fly.  With sexual tension rampant, a murderer  on the loose with an agenda that makes the hair on your arm stand erect and a few issues of her own Veronica starts to put the case together by immersing herself into the lives' of the victims.  She does this for she, like them has a chip that is implanted - a chip designed to ease some of the more debilitating symptoms of Alzheimer's and is now instead a controversial military weapon who makes the bearer able to record everything they see in the same manner as a camera… EVERYTHING and EVERYBODY. She can see what the victims saw.  She can see everything they saw..can she keep from looking away?
A brilliant stroke of ingenious writing.  A hook in paragraph one.  An angle new and fresh though plausible and logical.  A triangle built more on respect than lust.  A murder most foul.  I loved the authors ease in writing this thriller.  From the first page to the last it read like an old comfy t-shirt.  It is simply a perfect fit. 
No doubt that this book will impress most if not all lovers of this genre. 
I received a copy for review from Netgalley
