Black's new book, A LAURA CARDINAL THRILLER, begins building momentum quickly. J Carson Black has always created interesting characters with great back stories. She gives us just enough information that we have to keep reading to find out what happens next. She introduces us to the mysterious person at the gate. We meet Payton, a young Mexican woman who seeks Cardinal at her gym. She asks Cardinal to investigate her death. Cardinal is taken by surprise when Payton explains she is sure someone is going to kill her. Payton surprises Cardinal further when she finds out it was Steve Lawson who told Payton about Laura investigative skills.
Immediately, Black has Cardinal look back five years (Black's, THE DEVIL'S HOUR) when she arrested Lawson for killing little Jenny Carmichael. As Cardinal remembers, Steve Lawson's lawyer gets the murder charge dropped. Laura is still angry that Lawson got off without any punishment and no jail time. Jenny Carmichael didn't receive any justice when they released Steve Lawsen. Fans of Laura Cardinal know the tenacity Black has instilled in Laura's personality. Laura Cardinal is always looking to find justice victims like Carmichael.
The story pace continues to move towards Laura and her partner investigating a freak accident with the drunk college student going down the hill. They move the dead college student's car and discovered a second car. The second car belonged to Payton, finding her body in her car. Black's old fans and new fans will all be on pins and needles. What new twists is Black going to throw at us next.. Fans are still wondering what the clues mean.
The pace was of this story is perfect, and we are kept wondering why murder Payton and who is responsible. No spoilers pointing out subtle clues and there is no such thing as coincidences. Are fans alert enough to pick up on the clues causing Laura doubt so of the obvious. What did they find at Payton's home and what did her landlord tell Cardinal about who she was dating. The ending is way out of left field and one of Black's best surprise ending
I enjoyed how the suspects of who was responsibility for Payton's death and the planning that went into finding the killers. This story was a true spellbinder and we don't know who is boarding Flight 12 from J. Carson Black LAURA CARDINAL THRILLER, When fans see who is boarding Flight 12, they will want to buy a ticket and board/
Black has helped Laura Cardinal grow, and we get a taste of how Laura Cardinal, is a DPS investigator who never gives up. Black's fans will need to write her asking for more Laura Cardinal. The fans see Cardinal enjoying her personal life and s happy with Matt. Cardinal likes her partner Anthony, and we see her confidence strong as she does not need her dead partner, Frank, to build her confidence she just like to visit with him.
J. Carson Black hit this one out of the park. Black's story is a must read and a great second installment of the Flight 12 project. If each segment continues enhancing the Flight 12 excitement, I can't imagines what the next ten installments will bring. I have no problem giving this J. Carson Black story a 5 star ranking.
Possible spoiler alert!!!
From the way it was described in the forward I thought that each of the books was going to be a different character explaining what happened to Flight 12 from their point of view. So far (I've read the Kristin Cunningham thriller (by Allan Leverone) this one and the Jess Kimball thriller by Diane Capri) it hasn't been that way at all. No one has even made it on the plane yet. Don't get me wrong. The books are still great and maybe later on in the series it will turn out that they are going to be telling it from several characters point of view (in different books) on the plane but I wish it had been made a little more clear that each book was not going to be entirely about the Flight.
In fact, there's just a tiny blurb about Flight 12 at the end of the book almost as if the book had been completely written before Ms. Black was contacted about the project and she threw it in as an afterthought. The 3rd book (the Kristin Cunningham thriller by Allan Leverone) was mentioned the Flight throughout the book but still none of the main characters have made it aboard the Flight.
So I feel a little ripped off. The authors could have explained it more clearly instead of leading us on. However, they are still introducing me to some great authors and opening me up to new series (which is probably what they hoped for) and I have a lot more on my TBR list now :-)
