Infallible by Bailey Quinn is my first try with romance crime novel, frankly I wasn’t sure with this combination but was excited at the same time to see how it turns out and this is book surprised me, action, suspenseful, realistic, I just loved it.
Detective Scarlet Anne Martins, an investigator working with the NYPD until being charged for terrorism which she must uncover evidence so as to put those who had set her up behind bars. Detective Martins is not in a position to trust anyone, not even Agent Blade, FBI who appears as a guardian.
The story line is fast paced and action packed with lots of surprises, twists keeping you glued to the story. Scarlet being a fugitive in a foreign country, needs to prove her innocence by uncovering evidence avoiding capture by the police or the criminals without official support against a fast ticking clock takes this storyline to another level. I enjoyed the protagonist’s relationship, a tenuous affair for most part of the storyline but may be less enjoyed for those who are in search for more “steaminess”.
Overall, this is a great read, a perfect balance of romance & crime genre with a fast paced, action packed and realistic story line with lots of surprises and twists. I really wish there will a second book. Highly recommend especially for late teens and early twenties readers.
