ears ago, Lou Boldt's wife Liz had an affair with David Hayes, a young computer specialist at the bank where she is an executive. When Liz ended the relationship after reconciling with Lou, Hayes engaged in a daring embezzlement scheme. Now, years later, Hayes is trying to retrieve the money he hid for the Russian mob and contacts Liz to try to gain access to the bank's mainframe. Liz is torn between wanting to protect the bank and needing to protect her family. Boldt, ripped apart by the discovery of his wife's possible blackmail, must skate a delicate line between his incompatible roles as determined detective and jealous husband if he is to find the money while exposing and stopping Hayes. Intensely involving and revealing new aspects of Boldt's emotional makeup never before seen, The Body of David Hayes is Ridley's most gripping and engaging thriller yet.

User Review  - Carolyn - Goodreads

Fair. For as long and involved as the book was, the resolution was too simply and unsatisfying. Read full review

Review: The Body of David Hayes (Boldt & Matthews #9)

User Review  - Amanda Hendsbee - Goodreads

This book had its ups and downs. When it was good, it was really good, but there was a lot in between that I could have lived without, and it seemed a bit lengthy in comparison to the amount of plot. Overall I enjoyed it, but a little more editing would have served it well. Read full review
