The Broken is a crime fiction about a broadcast journalist, Kate Johnson, who is violently attacked in her home and left for dead. Due to incompetent police work and a fear for her life she goes on the run. Kate successfully falls off the grid for three years, until Agent Hayden Reed locates her. Seeking her help to catch a killer, who is killing journalists; journalists who are carbon copies of Kate. Kate and Reed join forces to stop the Broadcaster Butcher from killing, to keep the Butcher from finding Kate and finishing what he started. The Broken is an enthralling book, full of twists and turns that will have you guessing the entire novel. The characters are interesting, multilayered and driven. I look forward to reading other books in the series, and can't wait to learn more about the other characters that work in the dream-team of FBI Agents that Agent Reed belongs too. I am sure that I will not be disappointed with the backstories of each Agent; as well as finding out what drives each of them. If you like crime fiction, strong women, and romance The Broken is a book that you should definitely checkout.
