Charlottesville, Virginia, Police Detective Luke McGinty has a closet filled with demons, along with a few skeletons; a steady job, but no steady partner or girlfriend; and is still married to his wife Sallie, even though she’s been dead for three years. Then his detective work takes a turn for the worse when a body is discovered at the downtown mall. One dead body isn’t enough, though, and another one turns up. When ties to a cold murder case in another county present themselves, Luke realizes that, if he doesn’t tread carefully, he could end up short more than just a few answers…
Review: An exciting, suspenseful thriller that kept me guessing as to who was behind it... I love reading suspense novels during the fall, and this is one of my favorite books of this year. Luke is an intriguing character to read about, and the author has an elegant, fast-paced writing style.
