Detective Sam Black is a winner in Deadly Consequences even though crusty Lombardo is around. A novella which is fast paced with plenty of murders that take place near a zoo. Have to say this book kept me engaged throughout. If you like suspense this is definitely worth a read.

This is a  girl detective "who done it" short story but oh, so many body parts.  Fast paced, great read.  I'll make it a point to look for another Lori Gordon book.

I read the book in 2 days because I couldn't put it down... I loved how as the story evolved...my idea of who was the UNSUB changed with it.. and in the end I was so totally surprised... The Author describes her characters so well that you truly do not like the rotten guy... and you really like the good ones.. looking forward to more reads from this Author Lori Gordon.

A gripping read. Well developed, fleshed out characters and a plot that kept me guessing. A fast paced story that pulled me in from the start. From the back page excerpt, I discovered that D.C. introduced a great set of continuing new characters, the detectives of the 18th Precient. If this book is the first in a series, color me hooked. Each character has layers and I suspect back stories that will unfold as we get to know them better. From Sam Black, lead detective and lone female dick, to old school, back stabbing Lombardo, I felt like I knew the characters by the end. The murders are gruesome, but there's realism in that the killings aren't sugar coated.
All in all a great read, only complaint, the book was too short, kept me wanting more.

A woman's leg, amputated with a saw, has been discovered in Chicago's Lincoln Park and it's up to Sam Black and Chicago's finest to find out who the murderer is before another body is discovered. That's the beginning of Lori Gordon's suspense thriller, Deadly Consequences as she takes the reader on a race against time to find the murderer. Sam Black is cool and poised under pressure as she tries to locate the murderer while dealing with a veteran detective who doesn't think she has what it takes to solve a crime of this magnitude.

From there it's nonstop as Black and other detectives work the crime scene looking for all the right clues that will help them solve the case. If you like your reading tight, action-packed, and fast-paced, you're going to enjoy Deadly Consequences.

You won't be able to put it down once you start.

The novella has the perfect and unique set-up: amputated limbs discovered at the zoo. I knew from the first percent the author had good story-telling ability, and I wanted to know what would happen next.

I liked Sam, the female lead detective, who would pop Hershey kisses any chance she got (like breath mints). For the most part she was hard-edged and tough, yet there were moments of vulnerability interspersed. I believe the author was going for a credible edge with this, but sometimes it seemed like Sam was a little too "touchy" and moved to tear up rather easily (personal opinion). This might have had more belonging if it were a full-length novel and we got to know her "inner workings" even better.

Yet, with this said, Sam had lost her sister to murder (which still remains a cold case and served as the motivation for Sam to become a cop), and made these murders touch closer to home. With the victims being women, I suppose it did make it personal for Sam...It just seemed like there was more mention of emotion during the reading of the book than felt natural for a tough cop.

Sam uses her background training in criminal profiling, but I found at times it was like "this is our guy", "oh, no it isn't". Again, that is just a personal observation as well.

All in all, though, an enjoyable read.

Wonderful, suspensful, keeps you thinking. Cannot wait to continue reading the series (in reverse). Perfect beach, bus, bench, anywhere reading.

Good read. Lots of quick thinking done and in such a short while. Just amazes me how she goes from one state of mind to another.
