Detective Avery North has a mystery to sort out. After finding a second murder victim, similarities in the crime scenes point to a serial killer. Both victims are young, Asian women with magnolia tattoos. Assisting her team with the case is assistant medical examiner, Jackson Bryant. Jackson's bent for details and keen observation skills prove valuable to Avery's search for the killer, but the caring attention the dashing examiner displays toward Avery may endanger her heart. Ultimately, Avery's search for clues to the homicides uncovers a dark network of international crime right in her own Atlanta neighborhood.
The plot in Dangerous Passage was neither stellar nor horrible- it was just mediocre in my opinion. Elements of danger and suspense were sprinkled throughout the book, but the story was slow at times. I was hoping for more development in the romance between Avery and Jackson. One of the better points of the novel was a strong female lead character. Avery is smart, determined, brave, and devoted to her job as a detective.
