Forbidden by Angela Ford
Supervisory Special Agent Jessica Resario thought she found Closure. She did not expect a Déjà vu.
Jessica Resario thought she found closure from the arrest of her parents’ murderer. She allowed her heart to love again. Knowing a married couple could not work on the same team, Tom Erickson stepped down as Supervisor of the FBI’s Internet Security Task Force. He decided to go back to the FBI Training Academy and groom new agents. Jess was promoted to direct the team. Supervisory Special Agent Jessica Resario continues to deliver spine-chilling seminars to educate parents and teenagers of lurking internet predators. A seminar one night introduces her to Mr. & Mrs. Bennett who are deeply concerned of their daughter’s safety. They know of Jess’s arrest the year before of Trevor Marshall. They asked Jess if she would take the time to read what they had discovered. Jess takes the file home. She did not expect to feel Déjà vu. Jess leads the team on the case to protect Tiffany. The team unravels the forbidding prospect that they have another Trevor Marshall on their hands. His personality fits a stalker through obsessive or addictive traits. Kyle had one exclusive relationship for years, his wife Tara. Tara died in a car crash on the I-80 earlier in the year. From what the team discovered of Tara Davidson, she fit the profile of domestic abuse. The chilling factor that hits the team is the striking resemblance between Tara Davidson and Tiffany Bennett. A close call one night with Kyle Davidson makes Tiffany realize he is a threat to her. As usual, Jess took the law into her own hands to protect the girl and entered Kyle’s house illegally. They can’t hold Kyle without Tiffany pressing charges. Jess is suspended again for her actions and decides a trip to the beach house with her husband is the best medicine. Tiffany decides to accept her father’s offer to send her to private school in England. The news of her parents’ murders brings Tiffany home. Jess races back to save her, only to put her own life into the hands of a killer. The team is in search of Jess, Tiffany and the killer. To their surprise, the past begins to creep up on them.
Startled from her thoughts, Jess turned and saw Tom in the doorway with a concerned look on his face.
He walked closer to her and set a cup of tea on her desk. “I thought you might need this.”
“Thanks Tom. You always know what I need. I love you so much.” She smiled and reached for his hand. Just his presence in the room warmed her from the cold chill she’d felt.
“I love you too.” He leaned down and kissed the top of her head. “Now spill it Jess. I know that look.”
She laughed at his remark. He knows me so well. “I feel like I’m reading about Trevor stalking me. This girl is in trouble, Tom. She’s being stalked. I feel it in my gut.” Jess took a sip of her tea. The warmth and sweetness of that Earl Grey Cream was exactly what she needed to calm her.
“That look worries the heck out of me. But I learned a long time ago I can’t stop you.” Tom picked up her phone from the desk and handed it to her. “Call Mr. Bennett”
“At this time of the night?” Jess looked at her watch.
“If he’s as concerned as you believe, Jess, he’ll be awake.” Tom kissed her forehead and smiled.
