Once again author Lee Meadows takes mystery fans on another action-packed ride through the streets of Detroit with the hard-hitting yet caring detective, Lincoln Keller. His assignment this time is to bring closure to the unsolved murder case of Deborah Norris, the sister-in-law of the outspoken Circuit Court Judge "War Zone" Henderson.
In the beginning Lincoln has a lot of mixed feelings about this case because he was not sure that he was going to successfully find the answers the judge was looking for. After all, eight years had passed since her murder took place. Even the local police department's investigation did not reveal anything . . . other than it was a random robbery & homicide. But once Lincoln begins to delve into the personal and professional life of Deborah, he soon realizes that she was a gifted writer whose life had been cut short. Her life was not cut short because of a random act of violence, but because she was asking way too many questions about something that was going on in a close friend's life.
So who really killed Deborah Norris? That classic "whodunit" question is revealed gradually as Lee Meadows presents us with intriguing characters whose lives are immersed in complicated lies and secrets which makes them all perfect suspects. In addition to the new characters in this tale, we are reacquainted with computer whiz Julie at Info-Search, Lincoln's love interest, detective Candy Malone, the annoying and overbearing Lieutenant Knackton, and the notorious Keller brothers -- characters which made Meadows debut novel, SILENT CONSPIRACY, a success! I enjoyed this mystery very much. I congratulate Meadows on his ability to not only tell a mystery story filled with present day humor, passion and violence, but to tell a story that keeps readers actively involved with solving the mystery to the very end.
