Private Investigator Kira Vance spends her days navigating the intricate labyrinth of Houston’s legal world, and she knows all of its shadowy players and dark secrets.
On a seemingly normal day, she’s delivering a report to her top client when suddenly everything goes sideways and the meeting ends in a bloodbath. Twenty-four hours later, the police have no suspects but one thing is clear: a killer has Kira in his sights.
Fiercely independent, Kira doesn’t expect—or want—help from anyone, least of all an unscrupulous lawyer and his elite security team. Instead, she launches her own investigation, hoping to uncover the answers that have eluded the police. But as Kira’s hunt for clues becomes more and more perilous, she realizes that she alone may hold the key to finding a vicious murderer. And she knows she must take help wherever she can find it if she wants to stay alive.
There's a reason Laura Griffin's titles are favorites of mine...and, it's books like this one. I am a picky reader (yes, this is a surprise to no one) and when there's a new book by her in my hands, I know it's going to be a good read.
Kira is wonderful, and interesting, and the story is very engaging. I love that the main character in this is a strong, but also vulnerable, woman. She's likeable, and you want things to go well for her, and from the very first scene (which gives you a pretty good idea how the rest of the story is going to go) you are worried about her, and how she is going to get out of the mess she finds herself in.
I enjoy romantic suspense when it has characters in law enforcement, detectives, private investigators, all of it. And, when Laura Griffin writes them, they are interesting, the characters...well, you care about them from the beginning.
This one is twisty, and it kept me guessing. I was really positive I knew what was going on in this. I didn't. I was totally wrong. By the end, I had figured it out, and it made sense, but I was not right in the middle. And, this was a lot of fun.
As always with a Laura Griffin title, I enjoyed and recommend this title.
