Girl of Rage by Charles Sheehan-Miles
Book 2 of the Rachel’s Peril Trilogy
Charles Sheehan-Miles is simply amazing. Girl of Rage is EPIC. The entire series so far is EPIC but this book, this book is just phenomenal in my opinion. You’re immediately sucked right back into the story as if you never stopped. The story picks up pretty much where Girl of Lies leaves off, with Andrea and Dylan on the run. Julia and Crank are trying to get back to the East Coast. Carrie, Alexandra, and baby Rachel are at the safe house. Adelina and Jessica are also on the run and hiding. No one is safe and we still don’t really know who the bad guys are. Although lots of questions do get answered.
Girl of Rage is not an easy read. You must read book one, Girl of Lies first to get the background and foundation of the story. Girl of Rage is just a continuation of the saga. I don’t even really know how to explain all of it. But we learn in book one that Richard Thompson is not Carrie or Andrea’s father. We know that Richard was involved in a government cover up in the Wakhan Corrider. There are several players including; Prince George-Phillip and Ahmad Shah Massoud. It feels like everyone is trying to cover themselves and we don’t even know who all the players are although we do know more about the bad guys.
There are so many secrets and for the girls, the Thompson sisters, it’s all very confusing. They know how they grew up, with a mother they think is crazy and a detached father. Now the rug has been ripped out from under them as they learn that their father raped their mother and beat her repeatedly over the years. They now know their mom had an affair. They know their father is involved in a scandal. The government it seems is determined to take them all down. On top of all of that someone is trying to kill them.
I said this before and I’ll say it again, this series is a movie in the making. I felt like I was reading a movie script. Charles Sheehan-Miles has told an amazingly good story here. It’s obvious he’s put in a lot of effort the writing is impeccable. What I really love the most is the underlying love story. Because a midst all the drama, lies, intrigue, there IS indeed a love story.
I can’t wait to see how this all plays out. Obviously I don’t want any harm to come to these girls but I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s more in store for them before it gets any better. You can trust no one in this series. And their allies may just be in the ones they least trust.

Carrie. May 2. 10:45 am.
Mention of the newspapers made her stomach twitch. She and Ray had been smeared in the news. “Everything in the papers was wrong,” she replied sharply.
“Okay, so tell me what happened.”
Carrie swallowed. “Army platoon went off the deep end. They took a lot of casualties, then the platoon sergeant went crazy and shot a civilian kid. Ray reported it several months later, and his sergeant leveled counter charges saying Ray had pulled the trigger. They put him on trial.”
“And he was murdered,” Bear said.
The word always hurt. It was ugly, and bare, and truthful. It said nothing and it said everything. “That’s right,” she said. “By one of his fellow soldiers.”
“Jesus,” Bear said.
“Anyway,” she said. “You’ve got to understand. I’ve already lost my soul mate. My husband. And … all I have is my family. My sisters. My daughter. You understand? I can tell you this much: Andrea’s not mixed up with money laundering or drugs or anything else. Neither is Julia. Whatever’s going on with this prosecutor and investigation stinks.”
Bear didn’t answer. He kept his eyes on the highway as they got closer to the city.
“Why aren’t you answering?” she asked. “You think they’re guilty?”
