My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Thank you Lissa Marie Redmond, Midnight Ink and Net Galley for a chance to review this book.
The series is growing in strength with Lauren Riley’s Cold Case Investigation. I have now read all 3 books in the series and surely the author has provided some exceptional writing. The story begins with the discovery of a body where different police forces are involved. A task force is formed with a single member from each jurisdiction. It’s not necessary to read the books in order coz enough background data is provided so that the reader doesnt miss much but I think to understand the dynamics of Lauren’s single minded obsession of David Spencer it’s best to read them in order.
All 3 books ends with a cliffhanger that makes me look forward to the next in the series but am not sure if I will be the sole voice here in that I wanted the friendly and warm relationship between Riley and Reese to continue.
Detective Lauren Riley risks her life to close the book for good on a killer who’s never paid for his crimes.
When cold case detective Lauren Riley returns to work after being stabbed by a fellow police officer, it’s clear that her troubles are far from over. The body of a young woman has been found in the same woods as a murder victim from one of Lauren’s most horrifying cases. It doesn’t take long for Lauren to be back at square one confronting David Spencer, the quietly deranged man she could never prove was a killer. Lauren convinces the police chief to put together a task force to uncover the connections between the brutal slaying of both women and the murder of two cops. But things go south quickly, forcing Lauren into a deadly game that she can’t afford to lose.
