COUNTDOWN TO CRISIS   A serial killer strikes every twelve hours. A vampire takes lives at random. At first glance, these tragic incidents seem unrelated. But Special Investigations Unit agents Sam Ryan and Gabriel Stern trace them both back to a military base known as Hopeworth. Is the murder spree part of a cover-up? And are the vampire killings less by chance and more methodical?   The investigation takes an eerie, personal turn when Sam discovers a connection between herself and the victims—and a clue to her own mysterious origins. With the violence escalating and the danger drawing closer to home, the stakes are raised and the mission changes from seeking justice to ensuring Sam and Gabriel’s own survival. And the one person who seems to hold all the answers—about Hopeworth, about Sam’s past—is a mystery man she isn’t sure she can trust. They share a psychic link through her dreams, and he once saved her life, but he may just be the greatest enemy humankind has ever known.

This was an excellent addition to the Spook Squad series. I couldn’t put the book down. Keri Arthur put the right amount of action, mystery and romantic tension into the story.

Samantha has been transferred to the SIU and partnered with Gabriel who is also the Assistant Director of the SIU. Throughout the story Sam starts to learning more about her past. Gabriel is doing everything in his power to push Sam to being transferred to another partner.

Sam can’t understand why Gabriel doesn’t notice her, but what she doesn’t know is that he does notice her but he is fighting and he can’t get over what happened in the past.

At the end of the case Sam gets transfer and wants to start having a life. In Sam’s mind she gave Gabriel what he wanted. But when Gabriel finds out where she has been transferred he gets pissed.

I give Generation 18 5 stars. It was an excellent read and I would recommend this series to anyone who loves paranormal and urban fantasy.
