    Las Vegas police officer Sasha Mills fled the city because she knows that staying behind means death. She realizes that she is a loose end that must be eliminated by the Russian crime ring. However, in Bitters, Texas, Sasha hits a stray dog. She takes the canine to veterinarian Dr. Gray Slaughter, who helps the dog. Before she flees into the night Police Chief Frank Elias arrives informing the vet that someone burned down the porch of the Assembly of Souls Church in what looks like a hate crime.

    Being the only outsider, the cop names Sasha as the prime suspect. Sasha tells Frank why she is in town, but he feels she lies as no one stops for a strange mutt. He tells her not to leave town. The arson makes Sasha visible to her enemies. She knows Frank will not keep her safe, as he only wants to grope her. Her only hope for survival resides with a crusty, but gorgeous animal doctor and a canine that started her current mess.

    With novels like DEAD END, Helen R. Myers is gaining a large fan following for her exciting romantic suspense thrillers. Her latest tale starts off slow as the author introduces the players, but once it shifts into gear the rapid pace continues until the final page. The audience will admire Sasha as she struggles with thugs, a bully of a cop, and her growing attraction and need to keep Gray safe while making her Alamo-like FINAL STAND. Readers will want more novels like this one from Ms. Myers.
