☕ ☕ ☕ ☕ ☕
With a perfect balance of suspense and emotion, Sara Blaedel creates another compelling crime novel in the Louise Rick series. This time around, Louise is involved in a murder that not only is steeped in the past, but also directly effects her present relationships.
Part of the reason why I love this series so much is that the author makes the story more about the people within the pages than police procedure. Of course there is murder, mystery, and investigations, but what moves the story forward is the way Blaedel gives us these flawed and relatable characters.
There is an elegance to the way that the author handles the interpersonal relationships as well as in this book the very sensitive issue of assisted suicide. This is the second book that I have read in the Louise Rick series and I am addicted. Blaedel has a fan for life if she keeps writing books like this one.
Reviewer Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
About the Book:
Louise Rick--head of the police department's elite Special Search Agency charged with missing persons cases--returns in Sara Blaedel's twist-filled suspense novel...
A housewife is the target of a shocking, methodical killing. Shot with a hunting rifle through her kitchen window, the woman is dead before she hits the ground.
Though murdered in England, it turns out that the woman, Sofie Parker, is actually a Danish citizen who's been on the Missing Persons list for almost two decades--so Louise Rick is called on to the case. Then, in an unexpected twist, the police discover that Sofie had been reported missing eighteen years ago by none other than Eik, Louise Rick's police colleague and lover.
Impulsive as ever, Eik rushes to England, and ends up in jail on suspicion of Sofie's murder. Completely blindsided by Eik's connection to the case, Louise is thoroughly unsettled and sick with worry, yet she must set aside her own emotional turmoil if she hopes to find the killer in what will become her most controversial case yet...
