Altercation YA Thriller by Tamara Hart Heiner

  My review for Book 1, Perilous:
As a huge fan of YA, but having never read a thriller, I was excited when the author asked me to review her book. I read the synopsis and thought, hmm, I've watched detective shows, I think this one will be just as good. Even better . . . 
Guess what?
I’ve never read a book that had my adrenaline pumping so hard and for so long! She succeeded in appealing to my reader’s eyes for a whole new genre world.
Young and carefree and daring, four teenaged girls accidentally witness a robbery while waiting for their ride home at the mall.
Detective Carl Hamilton is devastated when he finds a girl’s body. Now, where are the other three?

Author Tamara Hart Heiner couldn't let it end like that, she continues with Book 2, Altercation:

Amazon blurb:
The FBI promises Jacinta Rivera and her friends that they are safe. Jaci wants desperately to believe them but weeks of hiding from their kidnapper, alias "The Hand", have left her wary. Hidden from the public eye in an FBI safe house, Jaci must reconcile both her father's mysterious disappearance and the murder of her best friend. A betrayal lands Jaci back in the grasp of The Hand, shattering her ability to trust, and leaving her to wonder if she will ever piece together her broken life.

The sequel, Altercation, became just as dangerously scary as its counterpart, Perilous. With the criminals at large, I can't blame our heroine, Jacinta, from holding onto her fear as she struggles to trust the FBI--or anyone for that matter. There are so many twists and turns, I didn't see things come up that had me wonder what would happen next and how the girls would squeeze out of certain conundrums. It ended nicely, I'd love to see how Heiner plans to continue Jaci's journey to healing from such a tragedy!
