Publisher's Summary

 He warned her. People die in lonely and empty places. But she didn't listen.

Peter Brandt is a war-scarred news service reporter who has seen more than he can bear to remember. Returning to the States, he discovers his former wife, TV reporter Robin Anderson, brutally murdered and the local cops doing nothing to find her killer. Driven by guilt and regret over his failed marriage, Peter sets out with an old friend, retired cop Matt Banyon, to find Robin's killer. 

Following clues she left behind, Peter and Matt unearth a shadowy world of sex, drugs, political corruption, and a wealthy Cuban freedom fighter with a suspicious past. Peter and Matt soon become the hunted, and Peter must finally face his own demons - and death in a dark and empty place.

Not for me....

Although the story was written well without obvious flaws, it just fell flat for me. The characters were cliche, and I found the women in the story annoying and weak. It was missing that spark that made the story interesting and that drew me in. I couldn't get into it. It was just two dimensional as the print on the page.....

Wonderful Suspenseful Murder Mystery

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily leaving this review and all opinions expressed herein are mine.

Here, Peter Brandt is a reporter currently living in Central America. He receives a message that his ex-wife Robin, also a reporter, has been murdered and he needs to return to Palm Springs, CA. Soon after returning to his old stomping grounds, it is clear that Robin's murder is not what it seems but the Sheriff seems ready to close the case. Peter, with the help of some old friends, begins to look into Robin's death and the more he looks the more dangerous it becomes.

This is a taut well-written thriller which grabs you from the first page. The characters are well-developed and realistic. Peter Brandt, MC, is scarred both inside and out. The tension grows as the mystery has so many layers and slowly but deftly each piece is revealed. Once I started this book - I could not stop as I was completely drawn in.

The narrator did a great job in pacing and ratcheting up the tension through his vocal skills.
