unlucky 13

Lindsey Boxer and her partner Rich Conklin are called to investigate two dead bodies in a car accident on the Golden Gate Bridge. It quickly becomes obvious this was a homicide and the coroner, Clare Washburn, quickly confirms this and finds the cause of death – belly bombs. The hunt to find out how they were ingested by the victims is on and is shocking.

Meanwhile Lindsey receives a photo of the-one-that-got-away, Mackie Morales, the girlfriend of a serial killer who blames Lindsey for his death. After she lets it slip during a girls’ night out, her friend Cindy sets out to track Mackie down for an exclusive story, but Mackie has already begun her murderous rampage to San Francisco and Lindsey. During this, Yuki is on her honeymoon on a cruise ship in Alaska, which is taken over by pirates.

I was new to this series but quickly picked it up. There was a lot of action but the endings felt unfinished and rushed; the belly bomb case ended abruptly and the cruise ship hijacking was never explained, it just ……. ended. I really would have liked to learn more; like who they were; what the exit strategy was; who controlled them. An ok read but not enough detail given.
