Jessica Ripley didn’t kill her ex-husband. But everyone thinks she did. After serving twelve years for his murder, it’s time to get her own back on those who put her inside.
During those twelve years, Jessy’s son, Michael, has turned against her. Whatever mercy Jessy had for her intended victims, just blew away.
CSI Eddie Collins is having a hard time watching his father enjoying life. He’s also having it tough in the form of two new recruits to his office. One is off his tree on drugs and the other wants his job.
And then the murders begin.Can Eddie trust the evidence, or is someone twisting it, desperate to get even? And who did kill Jessy’s ex?
The 5th book of the series, but I have not read the 4 previous ones. Is it a problem? No, not in my opinion. Of course I have missed out on some of the background information but I had no trouble at all being captivated by this one.
The author created wonderful characters. I think it’s a bit a case of you love them or you hate them. Sid is awesome and Eddie … The more I got to know him the more I liked him and he was just hilarious. That’s the kind of humour I love and the author proves that crime and laughter can go hand in hand.
This book is filled with twists and turns. The author gives you the impression that everything is crystal clear, but that’s when it all starts to come out and you are in for a few revelations you did no see coming.
I am fascinated by forensics and I was in for a big treat.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. 5 stars.
