Detective Karen Hart is finally getting her life back on track—enjoying her new relationship and dealing with the grief in her past. Then someone from her counselling group asks for help locating a missing friend, Phoebe Woodrow, who went out partying and never came home.
Karen wonders if Phoebe’s disappearance might be related to a recent spate of women having their drinks spiked. As she digs deeper, she finds out that Phoebe’s work in medical research involved a shifty alliance with Quentin Chapman, a menacing local gangster—but it was also about to make her a fortune. Did Phoebe know too much? Or was it professional jealousy that put her life at risk?
Chapman makes it very clear that he doesn’t appreciate the police looking over his shoulder. As his threats start to hit close to home, Karen will need to face her worst fears—but can she really do that when her job has already cost her so much?
This is the seventh book of Karen Hart series and although I havent read the previous books but overall, I read as a standalone.
On Friday night, Phoebe was drugged and was not seen again. Karen was contacted about her disappearance and when she was, she finds there are many suspects in this case.
This was a fast-paced thriller. This was unputdownable and there were some twists and turns. I was at the edge of the seat and I couldn’t simply put the book out. Overall, I enjoyed reading this thriller series and I am looking forward to read more books from this author. Worth five stars!
Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
