Fournier's second novel is an exciting mystery as detectives Reese Clayton and Emerson Lake attempt to solve the murder of a prominent judge. As the investigation moves along, they also encounter an attempt on the life of South Dakota's governor, an escaped death row inmate, and decades of corruption. Fournier knows how to create realistic characters that you care about.
Barbara Fournier's sophomore mystery novel does not disappoint! Filled with layered characters you care about and a twisty- turny mystery that grabs you on page one and never let's go. I love the dynamic between the two South Dakota detectives and how they deal with their own relationship while navigating an increasingly complex murder case that could cost them their lives! Richly textured and expertly crafted.Five stars.
Barbara Fournier starts off on fire and keeps the flames burning with truly riveting action.
