Everything a detective novel should be—gripping, clever, and filled with deep characters.
Detective Kacy Lang wasn’t surprised when the body of her twin brother washed up from the icy depths of the Chicago River. She’d known since the day she graduated from the academy that one day he’d wind up on her beat, and she’d have to arrest him… or kill him. She could accept the fact he’d been murdered. What she couldn’t accept was the massive torture he’d endured before his death. Someone would pay for that.
A multilayered, fast-paced archaeological dig of a mystery.
This Review is so very hard to write because, I truly believe and want to do this book the justice it deserves and share the #booklove.
This is the introduction to the Detective Kacy Lang series.
Kacy is called to the crime scene to find the murder victim by the water of the Chicago river which unsurprising turns out to be her twin brother. Due to police rules she can’t legally work the case but that doesn’t stop her from investigating privately with her partner Dave Capello. She has always known she would have to bury or arrest her brother one day as they went there separate ways. She become a Detective and he got into drugs and into the criminal world etc everything, she was fighting against.
Kacy is a character you instantly take a liking to, she is feisty, brave, strong, incredibly clever. She will stop at nothing to get justice even if it is risky, or she’s at risk. She will think nothing of breaking the rules if she has too.
Dave is incredibly sweet, and he’s like a big brother and family to Kacy. Always has her back, no matter what. They are the perfect team, if there ever was one.
This is an outstanding book to start of this series. It is jammed packed full of action, twists and turns and drama on every single level. It truly is an incredible clever plot and story. It just gets deeper and grittier.
I don’t think, I breathed and my head was spinning although the book. It just gets better and better.
Linda’s writing style is wonderful. It’s easy and it just flows and flows.
Honestly, I read this within 4 hours. I started as soon as I received the book and did not put it down until I had finished.
Linda has quickly become another favourite author of mine and I’m yet to read her other books but I’m in no doubt they will be equalling as good. ( damn TBR list lol )
If you think this book knocks it out of the park, wait till you read the next one oh boy oh boy completely knocks this book out of the park… this series gets better and better.
I would personally like to thank Linda for the ARC and also The Special Arc Group for the all the wonderful books, chats etc.
Linda S. Prather is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author living in Lexington, Kentucky. Shehas always had a penchant for things a little outside the norm. “I saw my first “ghost” when I was five years old, and I’ve spent a lifetime trying to understand that vision. Was it real? And if it was, why? I became a paranormal investigator and love old houses that go bump in the night. I can often be found in old cemeteries just hanging out.” Linda says.
She has studied metaphysics, including the areas of touch healing, dream analysis, meditation and hypnosis. The power of the mind has always fascinated her.
When reading she love books that allow her to travel around the world without ever leaving home. As an author her greatest desire is to create characters that readers can love and hate, laugh and cry with, and stories that allow the reader to spend a few hours in sheer entertainment.
The Jacody Ives series was her first attempt to combine her love of true mystery and the paranormal. The Catherine Mans’ series continues and expands that combination, delving into the darker side of the power of the mind.
She finished her first romantic suspense in 2015, and having been a member of the judicial system for the past 19 years, wrote her first two legal thrillers in 2016. Also in 2016 she joined long-time friend and fellow NYT bestselling author, M. A. Comley in a joint series titled the Deception series. They released their first novella and two full-length novels in 2016.
