CATCH HER IF YOU CAN by Merline Lovelace (Berkley)

Lt. Samantha Spade, USAF is in charge of a small team of civilians and one career sergeant responsible for evaluating inventions for desert warfare. She is a sarcastic, lovable lady who has a tendency to act and then think. In this third episode, she is evaluating a robot dog called Snoopy SNIFER (Self-Nurturing Find and Identfy Robot). The robot leads them to the local bar and trys to climb into a pick-up. The driver of the truck starts shooting at them and the bar owner kills him. Samantha discovers three human heads in a cooler in the pick-up. Once again she is caught up in a criminal investigation, in trouble with the bad guys and with her boss. Her love interest, Border Patrol agent Jeff “Mitch” Mitchell, her ex-husband and his wife (the woman who broke up her marriage) become involved also. The story is fast paced and a very quick read with a lot of twists and turns. Some of the situations are a stretch for the imagination but add humor or interest to the story. As I said in my review of the first two books, I would like to see the members of her research team more involved. Their characters are very interesting and could take this series a long way.
