The reader quickly learns of the bombing of a Dallas Hotel twenty-five years ago, and the hero who emerged, Major Franklin Trapper. Major Trapper was instrumental in leading a group of people to safety, including a young girl who he carried out. We are then introduced to Kerra Bailey, a television journalist who wants to interview Major Trapper to commemorate the twenty-five year anniversary of the bombing. When he refuses all interviews, Kerra approaches the Major’s son, John Trapper.
John is a former ATF agent who left his job under a cloud. He was a child during the bombing, and his life with the Major was never the same. He is now estranged from his father and wants no part in helping Kerra get the elusive interview. So starts Brown’s latest novel, Seeing Red, and the reader quickly becomes immersed in the story that follows.
As always I found her supporting characters interesting and integral to the plot. I wasn’t as caught up in the relationship between Kerra and John as I usually am in a Sandra Brown novel, but their backstories certainly held my interest throughout. It is hard to say too much without throwing out some major spoilers, however, there is romance (maybe more sex than romance, actually) mixed with mystery in this quickly devoured read, and if you are a fan of this genre, I would definitely recommend it.
