    When a 15-year-old girl shows up to plead with Elvis to find her errant father, his first impulse is to hand the case over to Social Services. But he sees how hard the kid is working to keep her two siblings together and afloat. The father sounds like an angel; the case should be a cinch. But as Elvis investigates, he finds the dad seems to be a mover in the criminal underworld who is on the verge of a grand scheme.

    This year Valentine’s Day isn’t for romance. It’s for murder.Mega rich restaurant owner Jack Barnes and his second wife Zee are very much in love. However, their plans for Valentine’s Day are about to be torn apart by the most violent murder.Who is the strange figure plotting this sick crime? Who hates Jack that much? There are plenty of suspects living in Jack’s fancy block of flats. Is it them, or could it be the work of an outsider with a twisted mind?

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It started a little slowly and was a bit hard to follow as it jumped around at the beginning.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    suitable


    What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    protagonist's perspective was credible


    Do you think The Boy in the Suitcase needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    not really... but not impossible
