Descrição

The search for a missing child leads a courageous railway cop down a twisted trail of murder.

It's been five months since Special Agent Sydney Parnell survived a violent confrontation with a gang of brutal thugs, an encounter that left her physically and emotionally scarred. Deep down, Sydney fears she isn't ready for another investigation. But when a woman is murdered on the train tracks and a child goes missing, she knows she's the only one who can lead the hunt for the killer. While Denver police and the FBI chase down blind alleys, Sydney focuses on a single cryptic clue left behind at the crime scene—one that will send her down a path of greed, violence, and long-ago love.

With Denver beset by a series of monsoonlike thunderstorms that threaten to flood the city, Sydney and her K9 partner, Clyde, must wade through a murky trail of murder that stretches back thirty years—all to rescue a child…and catch a killer with a long memory and an insatiable appetite for destruction.

  • (5/5)
    Great in the series. I read them out of order and it didn't matter. Love the dog Clyde.
  • (5/5)
    Like the first book in the series, Blood on the Tracks, Dead Stop kept me enthralled from first page to last. The fast-paced story, the multi-faceted main character, and the information I learned along the way combined for a perfect read.Among the things I learned? A bit of Colorado history, that Silly String isn't just for making messes, and bits and pieces of railroad lore and procedures. Don't mind me, trains click-clacking down the tracks lulled me to sleep as a child, and the book isn't chockful of railroad trivia if that's not really your thing. But all these things add depth to the setting and helped put me right in the middle of the action.Dead Stop has an excellent mystery. I loved how all the various threads were woven together and how Parnell teased out all the clues. And the ending had my heart in my throat.But the characters are what make the story work. FBI Special Agent "Mad Mac" McConnell worked well with Parnell, and as bits of her history were shared, I could see why McConnell was such a strong, interesting character. But it's ex-Marine Sydney Rose Parnell and her inherited ex-war dog Clyde who got most of the attention, as well they should. Both fought in Iraq. Clyde's handler was the love of Parnell's life, and she inherited Clyde when her lover was killed. Both woman and dog suffer from PTSD, and although they are a formidable team when they're on the job, it's not all about the job. This partnership runs deep because they both look to each other for emotional support, too. The quotes that begin each chapter are from Parnell's classwork, therapy sessions, and her personal journal, and they shed light on the type of person she is. One of the best things this book-- and the series-- does is to help illustrate what soldiers returning from war go through.I enjoy the author's blend of setting, story, and character so much that I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series. I hope you'll give these books a try, and I do recommend that you begin with the first book, Blood on the Tracks.

    The heroine of this book is Sydney, ex marine served in Iraq, now a railroad police officer. The introduction to the book offers a happy home invaded by a killer /kidnapper out to make people pay. There is a lot of information about railroads and PTSD in this book but it is all incidental to a race to save a child. The hunt for Lucy , the fear, guilt and regret carried by Sydney, the violent deaths she must investigate all combine to keep the tension mounting for a superb read.I received this book from NetGalley to read and review. Thank you also to author and Thomas & Mercer Publishing.

    Dead Stop by Barbara NicklessSidney Rose Parnell #2Gripped from the beginning I could not put this book down. I have found a new-to-me author that I admire as a writer and story teller. I felt, learned, was made to think and was kept on my toes throughout the story and even though I had read the last few pages out of order still was surprised more than once while reading this book. I wrote to my siblings recommending it and recommend it to all of you, too. This is a story of a Marine war veteran with PTSD, a K-9 partner, who sees ghosts and has a mind that sees the minutiae of a case and finds her way to answers that others miss. I learned about police for the railroad, heard terms that were new to me, felt for the characters, cared and am eager to read what comes next in this series or anything written by this author. Thank you to NetGalley and Thomas & Mercer for the ARC – This is my honest review.5 Stars
