A young woman, Robin Marino, a Truman County Assistant DA, falls from the balcony of her eleventh floor apartment to her death. A half bottle of Jack Daniel's remains on the kitchen table and a note was left at the scene. The death is ruled a suicide but her sister, Sam Church, a newspaper reporter for the Grandview Perspective, a community newspaper, doesn't buy it. Robin, an alcoholic had stopped drinking and was regularly attending AA meetings.
Sam vows to find out what really happened to her sister. Was she pushed, murdered...but why? The reader follows Sam as she investigates and gathers facts to determine who the killer is. Her journey is not an easy one, as she herself is a functional alcoholic, and has many setbacks along the way, but she is strong and has the courage to press on. As she gets too close...she is watched...followed and targeted, with death threats. She had to find out the truth...that her sister didn't die in vain.
This is a fast-paced novel, with many subplots with short chapters that makes you keep on reading. It is well written and definitely a whodunit type of novel. I will definitely check out her new novel "Revenge is Sweet", as I was very impressed with this novel.
I'm anxiously awaiting a followup of this story!
The Friday Edition by Betta Ferrendelli is the first book in the Samantha Church mystery series. Featuring a heroine who is decidedly unheroic and almost fatally flawed, it moves along with the speed of an Indy racer and the force of an 18-wheeler to a stunning climax that you won’t have anticipated. While some of the police procedures seem a bit off, even for a small town, you’ll be so engrossed with Samantha and her challenges, you might not even notice.
A satisfying read.
