"This gripping story will undoubtedly become a must-read series." (top pick)
"Something for everyone in this tale of two cultures in collision. The mystery is mostly solid, the climax suitably complex, and there's enough blood and guts for those so inclined."
"The body count and the action sequences in this eventful novel (billed as the first in a series) come close to going over the top. The excess of incident, though, is in keeping with everything else about the blunt-spoken Mercy....She proves more than a match for any love- or lust-object coming into her sights--not to mention any villain."
From the Publisher
The award-nominated author of the Julie Collins series continues the story of former Army sniper Mercy Gunderson, who returns to her struggling South Dakota ranch and investigates the suspicious death of a Native American child, a killing that is met with indifference by local authorities.
Lori Armstrong introduces a new, compelling, and troubled heroine in NO MERCY. Mercy Gunderson takes a rare leave from her job in the U.S. Army and returns home for the first time in years. Her estranged father has just died, and Mercy has been left as executor of his will. Far from Iraq and expecting some peace and quiet, Mercy is not expecting to find the dead body of a young Iranian boy on her family's ranch. Compelled by guilt, genuine concern, and a desire for the truth, Mercy takes the murder investigation into her own hands, putting herself and her family in grave danger.
