Hijack in Abstract

A Cherry Tucker Mystery, #3

Hello again to Cherry Tucker. She has returned in her third book to a new adventure. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Most of us know that when the phone rings in the middle of the night the news cannot be good. When Cherry answers the late night call from her Uncle Will she finds he is willing to pay her to do a sketch of a suspected hijacker. She is thrilled. The downside of this offer is the investigating officer is ex-boyfriend, Luke Harper. Cherry receives a request to do a possible portrait and Shawna causes trouble with her smear campaign and threats. The town is in an uproar and Cherry's reputation is in near ruins.

Constant new twists keep the plot of Highjack in Abstract ever changing. You will not want to put it down. Once again I am unsure of my feelings about Luke Harper, but find myself delighted with Cherry Tucker.

There is the main storyline about the truck hijackings, then there is Cherry's desire to help an orphan and his great-grandmother. Oh and don’t forget the problems between Cherry, Luke and Todd. So much is going on that is intertwined together to keep you on the edge of your seat. I will tell you the ending screen will catch you unawares. I cannot wait to start book four, Death in Perspective. I hope book five is not far off.

With a classical series sold and a portrait commissioned, Cherry Tucker’s art career is in Georgia overdrive. But when the sheriff asks Cherry to draw a composite sketch of a hijacker, her life takes a hairpin as the composite leads to a related murder, her local card-sharking buddy Max Avtaikin becomes bear bait and her nemesis labels the classical series “pervert art.”

While she seeks to help the misfortunate and save her local reputation, Cherry’s hammer down attitude has her facing the headlights of an oncoming killer.
