Synopsis: One death might be an accident.
Two deaths looks like murder.
A man is shot dead in his own home, and his pregnant wife, Evie, is found with the gun in her hands.
Detective D.D. Warren instantly recognises her. Sixteen years ago, Evie also shot her own father. That killing was ruled an accident.
D.D. doesn’t believe in coincidences. But this case isn’t as open and shut as it first appears, and her job is to discover the truth.
Evie might be a victim. Or she might be about to get away with murder again.
My Rating: 5/5
My Review: It has been a while since I read a Lisa Gardner book and I was keen to get back into the swing of things with DD. It didn’t take long to feel like I had never been away and as a bonus, we see the reappearance of Kimberley Quincy. Flora Dane is also another character we see return and I was so pleased to see her and watch the integration of her along with DD and Kimberley.
This latest book starts out with the death of a man seemingly shot by how own pregnant wife. But that wife it appears was also accused of shooting dead her father when she was a teenager. This book was an absolute treat to read with lots of previous stories being intertwined with DD’s current life. There is plenty of action and some old fashioned ‘who dunnit’ threads appearing throughout the book.
I absolutely loved this book but I think more so because i Knew the history of the characters. Don’t get me wrong you can certainly read as a standalone but like many other series of books its wonderful to see the growth and lifeline of a character develop over time and this was no different. Thankfully although disappointed when I finished I have the latest release due out later this year ready to read!
