About the Book:
Burning debris littering the ground . . . smoke pluming in the acrid air . . . this is just the beginning if he fails.
Seven years ago, operative Luke Gallagher vanished to become part of an elite team set on capturing a deadly terrorist. When Luke returns to face those he left behind, their help becomes his only hope of stopping his target's latest threat of an attack that would shake America to its core.
Private investigator Kate Maxwell never stopped loving or looking for Luke after he disappeared. But she also never imagined he left her or his life by choice. Now he's back, and together they must unravel a twisting thread of secrets, lies, and betrayal, all while on the brink of a biological disaster.
Will they and their love survive, or will Luke and Kate become the terrorist's next mark?
Dead Drift brings together all of the characters from the Chesapeake Valor series working together in a gripping adventure to stop a deadly terrorist and his associates. Danger was around every corner as they raced against time with an ending that was a breath stealer! A secondary plot also emerged as Griffin and Finley embark on a cross-country investigation in search of Jenna's deranged killer. Luke's shocking re-entry into Kate's life leaves her both elated at his return yet in despair about why he left her in the first place. Together they are faced with navigating past hurts, confused hearts, and unrealized expectations. I especially liked that Pettrey provided insight into Luke's struggles with his sudden departure seven years prior and how his original expectations were unrealized. With this being the end of a series, I was so happy to see all of the characters represented in the story with hints of what will occur in their futures. So sad to see this series end, but fulfilling end nonetheless!
