"Threads of Suspicion" Book Review

Threads of Suspicion Book Review

(Evie Blackwell Cold Case #2)

by Dee Henderson


Dee Henderson Pens Another Compelling Cold Case Mystery
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.

MY REVIEW:  I love shows like Cold Case, Criminal Minds, and CSI on television and this book is a wonderful one to fill my desire as it combines elements of each of these shows as Evie attempts to solve some unsolved missing person cases.  While she would love to find the missing person alive, it's been a long time and she knows that the best thing she can do for the families is to recover the body and give them resolution. Dee Henderson has truly given readers a sense of the hard work, determination, and compassion of investigators. Add a bit of romance to the mix and you have a great read.   Romantic decisions must be made:  one isn't sure she is ready to commit to love and marriage while one is eager to marry but his partner is not a Christian and he refuses to be unequally yoked.  
         The faith of the characters is woven naturally into the lives and conversations so that it is not contrived as is often the case in many works of Christian fiction.   There were too many details and characters at times for me to follow the story, but this may be due to the fact that I did not read book one in the series.  
         I rate this book 4 stars and highly recommend it to readers and I do recommend reading book one before tackling this one.   
        I received a complementary e-version of this book from netgalley and the publishers.  I was encouraged but not required to write a review and all opinions expressed are my own.
