A Deadly Business Audiobook

A Deadly Business: Mia Quinn, Book 2

Now Detective Charlie Carlson is suggesting the very thing Mia doesn’t want to believe - that her accountant husband's deadly car accident was no accident at all. When Mia and Charlie encounter resistance to reopening the case, they take the investigation into their own hands. And find much more than they bargained for. Was Mia's husband more than an accountant - and less than an honest man?

Publisher's Summary

A prosecutor of violent criminals. A detective on a dangerous beat. Together, these seasoned pros take on an off-the-books case that threatens to strip them of all they hold dear. When a 22-year-old killer walks into the courtroom, his eyes confirm what Mia Quinn already guesses: He blames her for his conviction. In seconds, he knocks her to the ground and holds a razor blade to her throat. She manages to escape, but it's just one more reminder that Mia’s job prosecuting Seattle’s most dangerous criminals is risky.

As a single mom, the last thing Mia wants is for her work to follow her home - or discover that it already has. Now Detective Charlie Carlson is suggesting the very thing Mia doesn’t want to believe - that her accountant husband's deadly car accident was no accident at all. When Mia and Charlie encounter resistance to reopening the case, they take the investigation into their own hands. And find much more than they bargained for. Was Mia's husband more than an accountant - and less than an honest man? As the truth becomes more shocking and the case grows more complex, her husband's enemies take note of Mia - and her children. How far will this prosecutor go to learn the truth, and how far will she have to go to protect her family?

    I love espionage and detective thrillers but will listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    Story
    "Excellent crime mystery!"

    Despite not having listened to Book 1 in this series this novel, Book 2 stood up well on its own. The protagonist is a prosecutor whose accountant husband was believed killed in an auto accident but was actually murdered by his jeweler client.

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    "Good Mystery without the Usual Filth"

    Finally a good mystery without the f word in every other sentence . . . good writing, believable characters, crimes committed and followed up on . . .Mia's job prosecuting Seattle's most dangerous felons is a hard one, a single mom after losing her husband, she has a preschooler and a teenager. . . but she hasn't turned callous . . . and she can't turn a blind eye to "the least of these" . . . Mia suffers as any wife would when she learns that her accountant husband was an adulterer and perhaps assisted his clients in illegal activities . . . then when she and detective, Charlie Carlson begin to investigate his death, suspecting something other than an automobile accident, things become dangerous for her and her family . . .

    Story
    "Disappointed by sloppy detail."
    Any additional comments?

    When a story is set in a real setting -- in this case Seattle/King County-- it is usually best to continue to use real places or, at the very least choose the names of fictional places with care. Otherwise, readers familiar with the geography have trouble staying in the story. I enjoyed book 1 of this story. But in book 2 the authors chose to set the site of Mia's husband's death in the county south of King County. They chose to give that county a fictional name (probably because the painted the sheriff's department in an unfavorable light). However, they chose to give the county the name of an actual city south of Seattle. This makes it look like a mistake and throws the reader out of the story every time they run across that name. To make the situation worse, the name of the county is different at the end of the book. All through the book it was Puyallup County, but in the final pages it is suddenly Coho County. Sadly, had they used Coho throughout the book it would have been more readily accepted by readers who know the area because they would see it was meant to be fictitious.
