Threads of Suspicion by Dee Henderson
From the publisher:
Evie Blackwell's reputation as a top investigator for the Illinois State Police has landed her an appointment to the governor's new Missing Persons Task Force. This elite investigative team is launched with plenty of public fanfare. The governor has made this initiative a high priority, so they will have to produce results--and quickly.
Evie and her new partner, David Marshal, are assigned to a pair of unrelated cases in suburban Chicago, and while both involve persons now missing for several years, the cases couldn't be more different. While Evie opens old wounds in a close-knit neighborhood to find a missing college student, David searches for a private investigator working for a high-powered client.
With a deep conviction that "justice for all" truly matters, Evie and David are unrelenting in their search for the truth. But Evie must also find answers to the questions that lie just beneath the surface in her personal life.
This is the second book in the Evie Blackwell cold case and I have to say that I missed some of the characters from the first book and was sad to not know more about them. But the book quickly catches your attention and you become immersed in the stories.
As with the first book, what is interesting is how much tension and suspense Dee Henderson can create from a cold case. These are cases that didn't have an end and yet nothing more seems to have happened--but there is a lot of suspense and tension. It's brilliant, really.
Evie is a wonderful and complex characters. I loved to read about her and how she navigates her professional and personal life.
This books are dark in a way that is hard to describe but Henderson handles it all well.
I received this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
