9780061544453: Takeover (Theresa MacLean Novels)

In the tradition of Kathy Reichs and Jeffery Deaver, a talented novelist introduces a gutsy forensic investigator caught in the middle of an explosive crisis

Early one Thursday morning, forensic scientist Theresa MacLean is called to the scene of a gruesome murder. The body of a man has been found on the front lawn of a house in suburban Cleveland, the back of his head bashed in. Although it's not the best start to her day, Theresa has been through worse. What unfolds during the next eight hours, though, is nothing she could ever have imagined.

Downtown at the Federal Reserve Bank, her police detective fiancé is taken hostage with six others in a robbery masterminded by two clever criminals. When she arrives at the scene, Theresa discovers that the police have brought in the city's best hostage negotiator: handsome, high-profile Chris Cavanaugh. He hasn't lost a victim yet, but Theresa wonders if he might be too arrogant to save the day this time around.

When her fiancé is injured, she seizes the opportunity to trade places with him. Once on the inside, she will use all her wiles, experience, and technical skills to gain control of the situation. But what initially appears to be a bank heist turns into something far more complex and deadly, and Theresa must decide how much more she is willing to sacrifice in order to save the lives of innocent people as well as her own.

A native of Cleveland, she lives in Cape Coral, Florida.

Review:

“...a tautly plotted, relentlessly suspenseful debut. Let’s hope she writes another scorcher-and soon.” (Booklist (starred review))

“Grab-you-by-the throat suspense, written by someone who has actually walked the disturbing walk of an investigator.” (Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of Body Double)

“The combination of a credible, likable hero and a bizarre, chilling story is rare in crime fiction....Lisa Black makes the tumblers click perfectly.” (Jeremiah Healy, author of Invasion of Privacy)

“An exciting story that is hard to put down.” (Dr. Bill Bass, forensic anthropologist at the Body Farm and coauthor of The Devil’s Bones)

“Takeover is a riveting hostage drama packed with surprises. Once Lisa Black gets you inside the bank, you—like the bad guys—won’t be able to stop.” (Peter Abrahams, author of Delusion)

“Takeover is captivating. Part procedural, part psychological suspense, and every inch a thriller, Takeover succeeds from the opening chapter.” (Ridley Pearson, New York Times bestselling author of Killer View)

“Entertaining” (Chicago Sun-Times)
