There are your favorite authors that can't write fast enough. Lis Wiehl is one of my favorites and was thrilled to see she had written a new book. She keeps getting better and better with each book. This is one of the best suspense books I have read.
This is a Mia Quinn mystery. The storyline starts with a intriguing murder that sets this book into many plots, twists and remarkable characters. Mia is talking with a friend from the prosecutors office and hears a gunshot over the phone. She realizes her colleague is dying and heads over there while her son stays on the phone in case she says anything-bad idea. She wants to head up the murder investigation but with so much on her plate she needs help and the storyline unfolds. Mia is a new widow with lots of debts, troubled teenage son, a four year old who wakes up screaming at night and just trying to keep her job. As they dig deeper, more complications unfold and she finds herself a target.
I was so absorbed by this story and the different themes. She touched on being a successful prosecutor, trying to be a mom and holding it all together. Appearances can be deceiving and Mia learns this from the strong characters throughout the book. This is one book I will keep and cannot wait for the sequel. Please Lis-write faster!
