The Last Good Girl by Allison Leotta

Product Details
In Allison Leotta's newest novel, college student, Emily Shapiro, has disappeared after an encounter with Dylan Highsmith. Prosecutor Anna Curtis has been asked, by her former fiance, Jack,  to help find the missing woman. This creates a bit of a love-triangle for Anna, who is now living with a new man named Cooper.

To add to the drama, Emily Shapiro's father is less than helpful during the search for his daughter, whom we learn may not be missing at all. The lack of a body or any evidence to indicate foul play, make Anna's efforts to question Dylan Highsmith about Emily's whereabouts are less than effective.

I've been a fan of Allison Leotta since her very first book. The Last Good Girl didn't let me down. As a former prosecutor of sex crimes, Leotta knows how the courts work. Her novels reflect her knowledge of the system, keeping the readers informed and entertained.

The Fall of Moscow Station by Mark Henshaw

Alden Maines has served his country as a CIA agent for years.  But when he's passed over for a promotion, his loyalty to his country wanes. Expecting a big payout, he flees to Russia to give up his fellow spies, but instead learns that The Russian government has the upper hand. They announce that Maines has officially defected to Russia, making it impossible for him to return to his homeland. They now force him to give up the names of his fellow agents against his will.

Kyra Stryker was a new CIA agent when Maines rescued her from a failed mission. It is now her job to find Maines and bring him home, while at the same time try and save as many agents as possible before the Russians can find them.

If you've ever wondered about the workings of covert spies, you'll want to read The Fall of Moscow. Henshaw obviously knows his stuff. This book takes you behind the scenes of The CIA, treason, and the Russian government.
