Now I am working my way through Leif G W Persson Johansson and Jarnebring series - I discovered the first three books had been translated a long time ago, and ordered from the library. Currently re-reading Between summer’s longing and winter’s end.
#47 In Death series
4 1/2 ⭐️
This is #47 of the In Death series. Paul Rohan a dedicated husband, father and employee was coerced into becoming suicide bomber, to save his wife and daughter. The explosion happened at a merger meeting of the airline he worked for and a low cost competitor. The stocks for the companies dropped instantly. When the survivors said the merger was still on, the stocks rose once again. Lt. Eve Dallas and her partner Det. Delia Peabody were called to the scene. It seemed an impossibility that 12 people died just because of some greedy souls wanted stock leverage. Why? Dallas, Peabody and Roark, a civilian consultant and Eve’s gorgeous talented husband all began the search for the killers. Their search took the through bomb fragments, high stake leveraged buying, and even to the
local art scene all while tracking the greedy killers. It was a fast action thriller with wonderful dialogue. It was different, in a good way, from many of it’s prequels, in that the killers were not readily apparent from the beginning of the book.
An Anonymous Girl by Hendricks & Pekkanen
(psych suspense/ethics and morality study leads to a twisty cat-and-mouse game/two main characters, authors and narrators ~ all are women)
UPDATE: first C/T/M fave for 2019!
Goldy Schultz, owner of Goldilocks catering in Aspen Meadow, Colorado, has a big problem. Her abusive ex-husbandJohn Richard Korman, aka The Jerk, has been arrested for the murder of an executive of the HMO where he works as an OBGYN Doctor. He had been dating the executive. Goldy’s son wants Goldy to help prove his dad is innocent. The problem is that Goldy is a witness; she found the body, and as such cannot interfere. Also, a friend of hers is suing John Richard and the HMO for negligence. Meanwhile Goldy has catering to do: a hockey party and a Babsie Doll convention. Is John Richard innocent, and what can she do to clear him? It’s all a twisted mess.
This was a fair read. Not was much action or much in the way of humor. I enjoy a bit of humor, but there was little. There was too much of Goldy mulling the case over and over. It became tedious. On to the next.
I also finished The Lost Man by Jane Harper and it is another standout. Three books into her career and she is one of my favorite authors. I love the Australian setting and she is fantastic with both plot and characters. There are so many good thriller writers from Australia right now it's ridiculous.
