Edgar Award-winning, New York Times best-selling author Jan Burke delivers a thrilling volume from her Irene Kelly series.
Years have passed since Richard Fletcher was murdered. Although his stepson was convicted of the crime, Irene isn’t so sure. To finally uncover the truth, the investigative journalist joins forces with Richard’s son Caleb, a graduate student in forensic anthropology.
I admit it, being so badly injured has left me desperate for an alternate reality. First I adopted VI Warshawsky, and now I feel like pounding on Irene and Frank's door and trying to convince them to let me hang out there for a while, like so many of their characters have done through these nine books. Sadly, there is only one book to go and I will need to surface and look for a new place to hide out all too soon. I can't believe how quickly I made my way through these books.
Burke gets better and better with each mystery she tells. The motivations behind this plot are a bit garbled. We understand more or less in the end, but the weaknesses are forgiven because of our fascination for the innocent, but bright kidnapped kids, the confused and hugely mistaken adults, and the network of people whose jobs require them to investigate the ill doings from a variety of perspectives.
Certainly the extraordinarily good narration contributes to why become part of it all, and keep turning out for another long beach walk each day so I can return to Irene's reality yet again.
I don't want to give away anything of this story. Trust me, this is well worth the download
