Anyways, in the story several years ago a teenager was brutally killed and her killer was never found, despite quite a few people suspecting that a biker gang called the Wild Blood may have been behind it. Then one of the witnesses begins to remember what happened on the night of the girls murder and the case is reopened, and P.I. Moriah Dru along with her employees are asked to help.
What follows is a bit of a wild ride as Dru rides with the Wild Blood, trying to not only discover who really killed Juliet Trapp, but also what happened to her Juliet's father who disappeared while being investigated by the IRS. And we're left wondering if doing bad things to bad people is really so bad after all.
This snippet provides more of an insight into the basic tone of this book than you may realize. This book is full of characters, including members of the Wild Blood, who seem to fit a certain stereotype on the surface yet reek of hidden depths. Needless to say, this is a great quality in a mystery novel. It doesn’t take too long to become completely immersed in the text, especially after another murder indicates that Juliet’s father may have obtained knowledge regarding the killer’s identity.
This book is billed as part of a series, and the main characters definitely warrant more installments. Dru and Lake have an intimate relationship with one another, but they are still detectives through and through. They both have something of a dry and analytical personality, something that is even reflected in the first-person narration. While some authors occasionally slip out of character during narration, there is not one point in this book during which the author appears to have forgotten from whose perspective the narrative is written. The result is a book that is as straightforward and likeable as its primary protagonist. Future installments should definitely prove worth a read.
Biker gangs have a pretty bad reputation--not always deserved if this book is to be believed. Richard Lake is with the Atlanta Police. Moriah Dru used to be a policewoman-but has since left the force and become a P.I. Her employees are unbelievable at ferreting out clues whether legally or illegally. Just as an aside-Richard and Moriah are an "item" but very low key as neither is quite ready to get married (or at least one of them isn't ready)!
Will Moriah and her employees be able to find out the secret of why Juliet Trapp was murdered and where Juliet's father is while exonerating the Biker Gang of any wrong doing? You really have to read this book cause that's all I can tell you! There is something at the end which makes me want to keep reading this series---------------
matter and to be honest because it's caught my attention, when I have a spare minute I'll have to read the first two books as well.
The book is about a cold case murder that was brought to attention when the witness of the murder suddenly remembers surprisingly three years after the crime. A teenage rich kid named Julia Trapp became the victim when over a Christmas break the 16 year old vanished while she was supposedly attending a bikers weekend with a biker gang in the local area. Unfortunately her father Sherman Trapp did his own investigating as there was hardly any leads and finds himself getting in too deeply and sadly it costs him his own life! Julia was found dead outside the Wild Blood motorcycle club, the Police in Atlanta where coming up blank but the witness Geoff Howard, that at the time of the crime claimed to have been very much under the influence of alcohol and didn't remember a thing, now surprisingly his memory has returned and they just might be able to solve the crime which is crucial since the death of Julia's father!
The way it was written helped revisit the background story so although I'd not read the beginning of the series it wasn't all that difficult to become caught up with the story.
