Threads of Suspicion

GIVEAWAY
HENDERSON, DEE
THREADS OF SUSPICION

Will her latest cold case unravel before justice is served?

Evie Blackwell's reputation as a top investigator for the Illinois State Police has landed her an appointment to the governor's Missing Persons Task force. With so much public fanfare surrounding the launch of this elite investigative team, the political stakes are high, and the team will have to produce results -- and quickly.

Evie and her new partner, David Marshal, are assigned to a pair of unrelated cases in suburban Chicago, and while both involve persons now missing for several years, the cases couldn't be more different. As Evie opens old wounds in a close-knit neighborhood over the disappearance of a college student, David searches for a private investigator whose last case involved a high-powered client.

With a deep conviction that "justice for all" truly matters, Evie and David are unrelenting in their search for the truth. But the questions that lie just beneath the surface in Evie's personal life are also begging for answers.

My Review:

This is the second Evie Blackwell Cold Case mystery but reads well as a standalone. The special cold case task-force is now official and working on their first cases. Threads of Suspicion features David and Evie in a fascinating play-by-play of police procedures. And I do mean fascinating.

It's like watching a crime drama show only getting all the clue building bits they skim over to get to the action scenes. This suspense is the opposite. Low on action and danger but high on the painstaking work police officers put in before they make an arrest. It's rich in dialogue, friendship building and complicated romances (David and Evie are both in serious relationships -- but not with each other.)

Evie is an astute, tough-as-nails cop but surprisingly vulnerable in her personal life. It's an intriguing contrast -- the confident and brilliant investigator doesn't mesh with the caution she carries into her romantic relationship. Love the rich, deeply thoughtful conversations she has with Rob. His steadfastness and patience as he waits for her.

 A brilliant glimpse into the complicated world of investigative police work -- not your typical action-packed suspense but captivating all the same.

    1. It's very different from her O'Malley series which everyone absolutely loves. Some readers can't get over the different style in her newer works but I really enjoy them. Good luck, Mindy.

  7. I'll take a Dee H. book any day.....loved this series as much as I did the earlier books she wrote!
    Does anyone know if there will be a Book 3??

    1. I'm counting on there being a book 3. I did some digging around and can't find any confirmation about that though. Dee Henderson has a facebook page but there's no interaction -- just a place to post images of book covers and announce a review or whatever. Doesn't look like it's run by her. She has to be the most reclusive author ever. I'm thinking there's going to be more because she's set up the cold-case team now and we have to find out what happens with the romances and there are a lot more cases to solve!

    1. Yes -- I love series that are made up of standalone novels 'cause I'm too impatient to play catch up if I'm late to the game. Good luck, Linda.
