Ashes in the Wind by Peggy Levesque

I like FBI investigative suspense fiction and this is a great novel in that genre.

Sara Jennings had already had one attempt on her life, not too long after the death of her DEA Agent husband. That put her in the Witness Protection program for two years. Then another attempt on her life convinces her she might as well go back home to Phoenix. She counts on the protection of Mac, another DEA Agent and her husband's best friend.

Things go horribly wrong when it appears there is a mole in the agency tipping off the drug cartel. It becomes evident that Sara's husband left her something that may identify the mole and bring down the cartel. But the turned DEA Agent finds out what Mac and Sara are up to and sends danger their way.

I really liked this novel by an author new to me. It is full of action and suspense. I really liked the way Sara was developed as a character. She was devastated when her husband died. She is angered when some accuse him of being on the take. She is determined to clear his reputation. She is a capable and gutsy woman. Mac was great too. He tries so hard to protect Sara while working to flush out the mole. Near the end he has too much to do and Sara faces deadly danger.

The action in the book is intense and nearly continuous. This is one of those books that kept me reading to the very suspenseful end. I highly recommend this book to those who like action packed FBI type suspense novels.
