Covert Threat (Gray Ghost #5)Covert Threat by Amy McKinley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A great read about science and danger. Jules is a research scientist working on some military type drug with her company. But when strange things start to happen and a boat race goes wrong, she realises science is more dangerous than she expected. To protect her, she enlits the help of bodyguard Trev Shaw. Together, they try to work out what is going on as events unravel. Can they find out who is behind it all before it’s too late?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns. Well developed characters like Jules standing up for herself but with her fears underneath or Trev as assertive but kind underneath
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the storm at the beginning with its sights and sounds so vivid its as if you’re actually there.
I also liked the use of suspense with small details revealed slowly to make you keep reading to find out what happened and whos begin it all. The first person narrative worked well to display Jules thoughts and feelings throughout the novel. The only issue I would raise is that sometimes the scientific terms used were hard to understand what they meant and may cause confusion for some readers. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars.
