Kariss meets Dr. Amy Garrett, who survived a brutal childhood attack in which the assailant was never found. Now Dr. Garrett wants her story written in a novel. Kariss wishes she could seek the advice of Special Agent Tigo Harris, but she broke off the relationship a few months prior and seeing him again would be too painful. She interviews Amy and conducts her own research, stepping unaware into a viper's pit of danger. Tigo misses Kariss and wants her back, but he understands why she broke off their relationship. Instead, he concentrates on solving a car bombing and bringing the killer to justice. As Kariss's new story attracts an onslaught of danger that she never expected, can Tigo save the woman he loves and find who wants her dead for writing about an unsolved cold-case?

What I Thought: The Survivor is the second book in the Crime Scene: Houston series.  Apparently The Survivor picks up where the first book, The Chase, left off.  I had not read The Chase, but had no trouble following the storyline. The Survivor is a good Christian suspense book, with lots of mystery and action, along with just enough romance.  It kept me engaged and interested from start to finish.  I really enjoyed the story, and I think I would have liked it even more if I had read The Chase first!  For someone who loves Amish Fiction, I've really been enjoying mystery and suspense books lately!
