Thrilling Reads Review

Mike Omer once again delivers a suspenseful page turner with Damaged Intentions, the second book in the Abby Mullen thriller series.

Abby Mullen is a NYPD hostage negotiator and mother and her world’s collide when she is has to negotiate for hostages that have attacked a high school and taken her daughter hostage.

The tension and suspense build in this taut thriller about a cult which forces Abby to confront her own past as a child in a deadly cult.

Some themes tackled in this story are ripped from the current headlines and state of affairs with conspiracy theories and how they affect family.

The characters come to life and there are plenty of great twists and a well-paced plot which makes this a thrilling read.

It's safe to say that Alan Petersen loves mystery and thriller books. He writes high-octane thrillers, hosts the MEET THE THRILLER AUTHOR podcast, and reviews thriller/mystery books.
