FBI bomb expert Paul Grale excels at his job, even if he
doesn't like his coworkers most of the time. A proud family
man, Grale escapes the stress of his job for an afternoon
Fourth of July cookout hosted by his sister, Melissa. The
day was perfect, except for the unnerving visit with his
former friend Jeremy, but it all turns dark when Paul
watches as the pavilion his sister's family has taken over
for the party explodes -- leaving Melissa, her husband, and
their son dead. Paul, beyond grief-struck, vows to find out
who killed his family.
Kirk Russell writes a very interesting novel. I have to
say at times, I got a little bit lost. Some of the terms
that he used were hard for me to understand. I also got
confused as to who was who. That being said I did enjoy
this book. I can't even image what it would be like to
find three fourths of your family dead.
This really was a mystery in a mystery. Who did the
bombing? What part did Jeremy play in it? It took me a
while to get through this book, but I would still
recommend it to someone who likes suspense.
While in Las Vegas on his way to a family Fourth of July
celebration, FBI bomb expert Paul Grale hears a deep blast
and sees the smoke rising. In an unfolding nightmare, Grale
discovers his sister, brother-in-law, and many friends were
caught up in the explosion. Grief stricken, he is pulled
from the main bomb investigation to sift orphan leads.
Quietly he begins a relentless search for the bomb maker.
When the FBI suspects his friend and disgruntled former
drone pilot for the blast, Grale thinks they’re getting it
all wrong. Propelled by deep personal loss and an intense
need to do the right thing, he picks his way through the
smallest of leads and into a maze of twists, turns, and
sudden dead ends. When he uncovers another threat, time is
already quickly running out. With the lives of so many at
stake, Grale won’t let himself fail—and he won’t rest until
there’s justice for his family.
Adrenalized, gripping, and all too timely, Signature
Wounds brings terror to Vegas and introduces FBI special
agent and bomb tech Paul Grale, a man whose specialized
skill and fierce determination are a lethal combination.
