The deadliest weapons are the ones we never see.
Digital Velocity is book one in Reily Garrett’s McAllister Justice Series although it was slow paced to start with once the pace picked up I couldn’t put it down.
Ethan McAllister is a police detective who is on the hunt for a serial killer. When he and his partner Larrick Robertson receive an anonymous tip off about a possible robbery they get more than they bargained for. Leaving Ethan shot.
Lexi Donovan has risen from a teenage orphan living on the streets to a keyboard prodigy, sending anonymous tips to the police the last thing she wanted to do was get one of them shot but when she discovers the “Dark Net” houses a playground for the morally depleted and criminally insane she has no choice but to turn up at Ethan’s door and try to discover their identities once and for all.
Romantic suspense is one of my favourite genres and I wasn’t disappointed with this one. Although it was slowed paced to start and at times didn’t really hold my interest I decided to keep reading and was glad I was as once the pace picked up I could put it down. Overall an enjoyable read. A well thought out plot with likeable characters. I will continue with the series.
Recommended to fans of romantic suspense.

Just prior to digging into this one, I read the prequel novella to the series, Tender Echoes. The prequel introduces us to hacker extraordinaire Lexi, who plays a big role in book #1, and briefly introduces us to the five McAllister brothers. Four are members of the police, and one is a PI. There is also a sister who is an attorney. The McAllister brothers are tightly knit and love to banter and kiddingly insult each other. Ethan McAllister, a police detective and fourth brother, takes center stage in Digital Velocity, along with Lexi.
I really liked these characters. The brotherly ribbing is on the corny side, but that’s OK. Ethan’s partner Larrick, a bit of a cowboy type, is a good add to the mix. We get to know Ethan, and especially Lexi, really well, which is a big plus in my book. Both Ethan and Lexi have dogs, Diego and Hoover.
The plot is a good one, though pretty straightforward in that there are not a lot of threads to resolve. Lexi is anonymously feeding cybertips to Ethan in hopes that he can use the info to crack the case of a repeat killer. Eventually, necessity brings Lexi and Ethan together. At that point we get a slow buildup to a highly suspenseful and thrilling climax. In fact, the whole last half of the book had me on needles. The characters at a late point in the story were in such a predicament I saw no way out; that kept the pages turning pretty darn fast!

They find the body of a brutally tortured, abused woman, and get caught in crossfire from two intruders. Ethan takes a bullet in his leg, but they do take down one of the men. Feeling guilty that Ethan got shot, anonymous caller Lexi visits him in hospital to apologise. In a past incident, Ethan had put away the pimp who had threatened Lexi , and enabled freedom for some friends of hers. He’s earned her respect.
Lexi works in computing and is an expert hacker. The dead women had previously taken a chance on Lexi, helping her get out of the gutter, get a home, a job and a better life. Lexi owes it to Frannie to help find her killer; but she’s unwilling to become more than a secret informant.
With Ethan on sick leave until his leg recovers, he slowly gains Lexi’s confidence and the pair work together behind the investigation scenes. Lexi digs deep through the dark net in an unsavoury world of hackers and villains, and discovers a site boasting about the murder and taking bids on video footage for the next victim. However, the perpetrator is clever, and she can’t find out anything about him through her back door methods.
Romantic feelings grow between Ethan and Lexi as they work alongside Ethan’s police brothers and his partner. Possible clues lead them to frustrating dead ends, and the victim list grows, until Lexi makes one too many illegal moves and becomes next on the murderers agenda. Can Ethan keep his promise to keep her safe?Read more ›
First up: I was fortunate enough to be given the chance to beta read this story. It was my first time beta reading, and I found it to be a wonderful introduction to the world of beta reading. My rating and review, however, are not influenced by this fact.
Second: it’s a very strong four-star read, and could have been a five-star rating were I kinder with my five star ratings. I so rarely give out five star ratings. With this one, I opted out of doing so because it’s not my favourite Reily Garrett read. Yes, it’s a very strong four-star rating, but I didn’t quite love it as much as I loved her Carnal Obsession book. As I did not give her Carnal Obsession a five-star rating, I realised I couldn’t quite give this a five-star rating. Despite this, it’s left me with the firm belief that Reily Garrett will one day be one of the few authors to pull a five star rating from me.
Third, and finally: you should go and give Tender Echoes a read. Tender Echoes is a wonderful prequel to this story. Although not a necessity, it is certainly a worthwhile read. Truthfully, I read it after reading Digital Velocity and enjoyed it just as much after the fact as I would have if I’d read it first. Still, it makes more sense to read it first.
Now, onto the important stuff. How I felt about this one.
Digital Velocity is the first book in the McAllister Justice series. After just one book, I’m super excited to see where the series goes next.Read more ›
