A prostitute's body is placed in an alley dumpster... A homeless man is the only witness... "The killer serves a higher calling." ... Someone is leaking information about the case... Another murder is committed...
The second Ransom Walsh book was just as exciting as the first! Leesa, Ransom and Teresa are back (Maddie is mentioned) along with a few new characters — both good and bad. The guilty parties were identified in the story, it was just a matter of seeing if they would get away with it — or if they would be caught (they were so arrogant, I really wanted them to pay!). This was another decently paced mystery with an interesting storyline that kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next...
I not only recommend the Ransom Walsh series, I am looking forward to the next book (yes, I am officially a fan)!
AfterThought: The book had a subplot discussing the subject of abuse. "The cycle of abuse rose through the classes, races, and ages. It did not discriminate. It swallowed up victims in its wake, sometimes over and over again." Thank you, Mr. Ellis for addressing this extremely important issue in your book.
This story starts with the scene of where the body is found. As the story goes on the book goes back in time to the events that led up to that point.
Love that the eye witness can really nail the one who did it. So many clues as Ransom and his side kick Lisa track them down as they head them to many involved.
Like the characters as I am now familiar with them and their personal iifes. So realistic!
Like how the story got it's title, so fitting! So deailed you feel as if you are there. Other works by they author and about the author are included at the end.
Can't wait to read in this series. Easy to follow along, handful of characters.
Received this review copy from the author via Goodreads contact and this is my honest opinion.
I would highly recommend this work.
My only issue was the addition of a minor character, Teressa! I saw no advantage to adding her; the author's text was more irritating that helpful to the story.
