~Book Review~ “A Dead Man’s Pulse” (Trident Security Omega Team Book 1) by Samantha A. Cole


My Review:

Samantha A Cole’s A Dead Man’s Pulse is the first novel in her new Omega team series, a spin-off from The Trident Security Series and the sexy six-pack!

Ian and Devon Sawyer are putting the finishing touches on their new “Omega” team so they can expand their current caseload.  When they offer Logan Reese a job as part of the new team, it gives the former marine a reason to hope that he once again can have a purpose in life, as he really hasn’t been living since being rescued just hours before he was murdered by insurgents in Afghanistan, a fate the rest of his teammates suffered.

Dakota Swift is an officer of the Tampa Bay Police Department.  She has a spotless service record, but can’t seem to get assigned to the Special Operations Division.  When a joint task force between the police, FBI and Trident Security is formed to hunt down the Kink Killer, a serial killer targeting submissive women in the area, Dakota is given an opportunity to be part of the undercover teams casing the local BDSM clubs.  Knowing this is the career opportunity that may finally get her noticed she readily agrees.  What she didn’t count on was her attraction to her new partner, Logan Reese.

As the body count continues to climb as more submissives are tortured and killed, the team must do everything they can to track down and find the Kink Killer before someone from their BDSM club the Covenant falls victim to the madman.

Samantha A. Cole did an amazing job in creating a new cast of characters for the Omega Team that can stand on their own to headline the new series, but also fit in with the original Trident Team members that readers know and love.  While this book could be read as a standalone, reading the prior series is recommended as readers have been tracking clues to the Kink Killer’s identity for quite some time now.

Logan’s background is truly heart-breaking.  No person should have to endure the things that he did for his country.  Samantha did a masterful job of portraying the daily issues someone with severe PTSD deals with, from survivor’s guilt, to flashbacks triggered by unexpected sounds or smells and more.  I love that a chance encounter with someone unexpected at Arlington National Cemetery profoundly affects Logan’s outlook on life.

Dakota, while a sexual submissive, is a bad-ass police officer.  She is a great mix of strength, intelligence, caring and sass and ends up being the perfect match to Logan in every way, as both partners on the task force as well as in a relationship.  Their relationship is pure magic.

As for the Kink Killer, Samantha keeps readers guessing right until the end about both the chances of survival for the latest victim and well as the killer’s identity.  The plot is action packed and comes to a very satisfying conclusion for fans and readers of Samantha’s work.

 A Dead Man’s Pulse was a highly anticipated read for me, and it delivered on every level, including a heat level that I’ve come to know and love throughout Samantha A. Cole’s books.  5 stars from a very excited reader glad to see the Omega Team off to a successful start!

About the Book:

Marine First Sergeant Logan “Cowboy” Reese was rescued hours before he would’ve met the same fate as his five murdered teammates in Afghanistan. Returning to the US and civilian life hadn’t been part of his plans at this stage of his career, but dealing with PTSD forced his hand. However, an unexpected job offer with Trident Security, a private firm in Tampa, has him finding a purpose in life again, but will his flashbacks destroy a promising future altogether?

Officer Dakota Swift has worked hard to prove she belongs on Tampa PD with the big boys and has been trying to get assigned to the Special Operations Division. A local, serial killer, targeting submissives in the BDSM lifestyle, gives her the opportunity to get her feet wet in undercover work. She’s assigned to the joint task force between TPD, the FBI, and Trident Security, but can she survive her attraction to her new partner, Logan?

The operatives of Trident Security have a keen interest of catching the “Kink Killer” as the heads of the company also own a BDSM club, The Covenant. Until his identity is discovered, no woman in the lifestyle community is safe. With the body count rising, will the killer be caught before someone from The Covenant becomes the next victim?
