Kristin Dane wants to make the world a better place, so she opens a fair trade shop featuring products from all over the world. Across the world, Brother Michael Bennett, a monk in a monastery in Syria, makes a frightening discovery and is found dead, presumably of natural causes. When Kristin's employee is found murdered, a gruesome plot is discovered, and she must work closely with the St. Louis Police Department and the FBI to help find the mastermind behind a deadly terrorist scheme.
"Hidden Peril" is the second installment in Irene Hannon's Code of Honor series. As always, Hannon entertains until the end. Although easy to figure out, it as fun to witness the interaction between Kristin and Luke Carter, the detective assigned to her case. I enjoyed their little romance as they each deserved to find some happiness after the losses they had both endured.
It is hard to go wrong when choosing a Hannon novel--from action to suspense to mystery and romance, Hannon consistently delivers quality work.

"A lot of people talked about helping those in need. Kristin Dane was doing it."
That's what made the crime so bizarre; a lovely fair trade shop smeared with the blood of a senseless murder. Kristin Dane is deeply heartbroken over the violent death of her part time clerk. The police want answers as well, and when they assign Detective Luke Carter to Kristin's case, she is duly convinced that Luke will do his very best to seek justice. But when a second murder is committed with loose connections to Kristin's merchandise, there is a sense that a much darker force could be involved. . . . . . for, "terrorists are not predictable".
Join Luke and and Kristin as they fight against those seeking America's demise, while their growing attraction for each other threatens to provide the spark that their enemy needs, to ignite its strategy into overdrive. This story has Irene Hannon's legendary trademarks written all over it; admirers of romantic suspense will have a hard time putting it down!
