Rampage - John Sandford, Michele Cook

Rampage is the third novel in the Singular Menace series.
When we left Shay and her band in Outrage, Shay and Harmon were trapped in a ship with Singular hunting them down. They manage to escape that situation, but Singular is not giving up that easy. As the group continues to pressure Singular in the media, the rats begin to abandon the sinking ship. Some abandon on their own and some are helped. Can Shay and her group track down the last of the villains? It's a great story and the ending is happy. I'll leave it at that. I hope there are more books with this amazing cast of characters. Very highly recommended.

Lost Souls - Lisa Jackson

Lost Souls is a novel in the Bentz/Montoya series. I have this book in MP3 format. On Jackson's website there's a description of Lost Souls, and links for places to purchase it.
Kristi Bentz is the protagonist in this thriller. She's taking too many chances investigating missing girls at All Saints College, where she's going to school. Kristi has almost died twice. The third time may be the charm. Can she uncover the culprit before she becomes the next missing girl? Very highly recommended.

The Angel: Act I - Mark Dawson

The Angel: Act I is the first novel in the Isabella Rose series. This book is available through kindleunlimited.
Isabella Rose is a 15 year old girl. She's not the typical 15 year old girl. Isabella's mother was Beatrix Rose, the former Number One for the elite British Group Fifteen. Beatrix taught Isabella everything she could about staying alive, and that was plenty. Now in the wake of widespread terror, Group Fifteen has recruited Isabella to help them gather intel on a terrorist financier. It doesn't go as planned. It never does. Lots of tense action and suspense. The cliff hanger is excruciating, but I'm already reading the second novel to relieve the pain. Very highly recommended.

The Temporary Agent - Daniel Judson

The Temporary Agent is the first novel in the Agent Series. This book is available through kindleunlimited.
Tom Sexton is a former navy seabee. He was part of an elite engineer reconnaissance team. When he and one of the marines he supported were injured by a grenade, Tom got out. But he feels he owes his life to that marine, Charlie Cahill. When Tom is contacted about Cahill being in trouble, he feels obligated to help. What Tom doesn't know is that the help won't be what he or Cahill would want, and that he and Cahill may not make it out alive. Lots of action and some suspense. There are more twists in this plot than you can count on one hand. Very highly recommended.

Outrage - John Sandford, Michele Cook

Outrage is the second novel in the Singular Menace Series. This book is $1.99 for the kindle.
In Uncaged, Shay Remby, her brother Odin, and her gang of eco-renagades discovered human experiments while trying to free some animals from a research lab run by Singular. They rescued a dog named X and a girl named Fenfang. Both victims of science gone bad. Now Shay and her team are on the run, but still planning to strike back at Singular, the company who put profits in front of humanity. But can they strike back before Singular finds and silences them forever? There's plenty of action and suspense. Very highly recommended.
