Blind Betrayal is another fast-paced suspense novel by Nancy Mehl that held me in its grip until the very last page. Action and danger fill the pages as a team from the U.S. Marshals Office do everything they can to escort a vital witness to Washington D.C. to testify. The story starts with a bang when a bomb attack at headquarters sends the team off on a mission that is not exactly as planned. Problems continue to plague them and they begin to wonder if any of them will survive. It was interesting to observe the interaction between Casey and E.J. as they were forced to work together despite their past connection. It soon became obvious that there were some misunderstandings that needed to be overcome if they were to successfully complete their assignment.
I enjoyed this suspense filled tale with realistic characters and a plot that could easily be drawn from current news. Plenty of unexpected twists and surprises kept me on the edge of my seat and I did not want to close the cover until I reached the end. I can always count on Nancy Mehl to provide a great read with just the right blend of faith, suspense, and romance.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
After two years at the St. Louis U.S. Marshals Office, Casey Sloane is tasked with escorting a reporter to Washington to testify before a grand jury. The reporter’s research on an up-and-coming environmentalist who suddenly disappeared is now even more vital than anticipated.
At first, Casey’s assignment seems routine. But a dangerous attack on the Marshals Office puts everyone on high alert. When Casey and two other Marshals–one a man from her past–are forced on the run with the reporter, they’ll do whatever it takes to protect their witness and make it out alive.
