“Outstanding plot, unique twists and turns, and the writing style is superb…Highly recommend for crime and mystery fans.” —Goodreads Reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
She could feel her life draining from her body, but there was nothing she could do except wait until it was all over…and for the darkness to descend upon her.
The brutal murder of Claire Reeves, a successful entrepreneur, darkens Christmas Eve for Detective Madison Knight, who is assigned the case. Claire was found stabbed in her home, and her intimate attire would suggest her killer was someone close to her, but Madison knows things aren’t always as they appear.
As Madison investigates, the lies and secrets pile up and reveal a long list of people who aren’t shedding any tears that Claire’s dead. Friends, lovers, and former business partners—they’re all suspects. After all, Claire’s love was money, and she thought nothing of betraying even those closest to her. No one can be trusted, but if there’s going to be justice, Madison will need to determine who had the most motive to pull off the crime. But just when Madison thinks she’s getting closer to finding the truth, there’s a deadly twist she never saw coming.
An absolutely gripping mystery thriller. Perfect for fans of Lisa Regan, Rachel Caine, and Robert Dugoni.

  • Not her best work

    By Ranger&Sadie
    Normally enjoy this author, but not this time. The characters were not well developed and the plot confusing. Disappointed.
  • Justified - suspects galore

    By Dingaling365
    This author sure keeps the reader guessing. So many players. The ending was satisfying. The banter between the 2 main characters was witty. I did find myself skipping over some of that squabbling. I wanted to get to the nitty gritty of the story. I have read other books in this series. I most certainly will buy more when they are made available. Thanks for the good reads.

    This author is one I enjoy reading very much. With each book I purchase. Keep the books coming.
  • Twists and turns

    By as close
    This second book continues with Madison Knight's strong personality and drive to solve a murder. She expects the same from her partner. This drive to only work and the way she treats her co-workers doesn't endure her to me as a reader. I also felt sorry for Hershey. I understand why Terry did that, but she neglected him every day. It made me feel sorry for Hershey. As a detective Madison is good at her job.

    While I enjoyed the book I dislike the main character. Thus far I cannot find a single redeeming quality that she possesses. She is rude, arrogant, argumentative, demanding and easy to hate. Why would an author invent such a disdainful person?
