Detective Mackenzie Price #2
Two women are dead. They both look like you.
The giant stretch of frozen river was melting and the light made the lake glitter like crystals. The women lay side by side on the shore, eyes open and glassy. Their long, dark hair was like tangled rope, their faces a reflection of each other…
When two bodies are found dumped in one of the vast lakes in Lakemore, Washington, Detective Mackenzie Price is first on the scene. She identifies one of the victims as Katy Becker, a local known for her work helping the community. The other victim looks strikingly similar.
Still grappling with a shocking revelation from her past, Mack is only too happy to throw herself into the case. But when she goes to break the news to Katy’s husband, the investigation takes an unexpected turn: Katy is very much alive, and has never met the women who resemble her so closely.
Now the race is on to find the killer before Katy becomes the next victim. But when Mack unearths a disturbing connection to a sixteen-year-old suicide, she realizes they could be hunting someone whose crimes span decades – and there are more lives than just Katy’s at stake.
It’s sometimes hard, when you read a lot of series, to remember where the previous story ended. The author kindly helps her readers by adding a prologue to this part to freshen up their minds.
It all came rushing back and I was engrossed straight away. Not only were a few things from the private life of Micky revealed but that made it not any easier on her. She has a lot to think about, deal with and some hard decisions to make.
But revelations don’t always mean that everything is smelling of roses now. Sometimes they trigger other things and do you have to keep on digging or let the past be the past?
I really enjoy the relationship between Micky and her partner Nick. They work very well together and the banter is often hilarious.
The case they get thrown in their lapses is though. Every time they get a clue it seems that other questions rise in stead of solving them.
Did I have an idea about who the culprit was? Yes, I did and I was happy to notice I seem to get better and better. Is it too late to train as a detective? LOL.
Anyway there was enough that I did not work out and I really enjoyed the story thoroughly. I am looking forward to the next part, because I am convinced that it will be as great as this one and the previous one. 5 stars.
Thank you, Ruhi Choudhary and Bookouture.
