It should have been an open and shut murder case, but Mia Quinn finds out nothing about it is simple.

 

After a young Chinese prostitute is stabbed to death by her rich American client, the tabloids dub Dandan Yee “Lethal Beauty”—despite the fact that she was the one who ended up dead. Yet even with double standards and naked prejudice working against her, Seattle prosecutor Mia Quinn is determined to get justice for Dandan Yee.

 

But when a key witness goes missing and an unsavory juror shuts down deliberations without explanation, Mia fears the trial—and the law—are being tampered with.

 

A constellation of fresh killings has Mia and homicide detective Charlie Carlson searching for a common source and puts Mia’s family in the crosshairs of a Chinese crime cabal. Meanwhile, Dandan Yee’s mother has opted to take matters into her own hands . . . and the stakes get more lethal overnight.

 

In the midst of all this, Mia has to contend with a fifteen-year-old son who is growing up too fast for his own good and the idea that Charlie might want to be more than just friends. Can Mia and Charlie stop the murders and still keep her family safe? Or is the very act of seeking justice enough to cost her everything—and everyone—she loves?

Review by Sally
Overall Rating
Mia Quinn, prosecutor for King County finds herself and her family embroiled in a string of seemingly unrelated murders. Mia is convinced someone further up the chain of command knows what is going on, but how can she prove it? The case she is trying seems to be an open and shut case, but results in a hung jury. The young girl who was murdered was dubbed “Lethal Beauty” by the tabloids. Will Mia and Charlie, a Seattle homicide detective, be able to tie the murders together before more people have to die?

Although this work is Christian fiction it is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. Its plot will take you into the world of modern-day slavery, human trafficking, prostitution and drugs, all without the use of profanity. There are so many suspense-filled twists and turns it will keep you holding your breath and your fingers turning the pages. Although it is filled with faith, forgiveness and second chances, it is not a “preachy” type book. It will appeal to the Christian as well as the secular reader.

Disclosure: I was given a copy of this eBook by the publisher, Thomas Nelson-Fiction, through NetGalley blogger program for review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
