Revenge Served Cold by Jackie Fullerton

Revenge Served Cold by Jackie Fullerton

Elliott Spence and his old college buddy Ross Craig meet at a bar after not seeing each other for a long time. When Elliot leaves the bar he gets run over by a car and killed.

Elliot’s wife Kathy is the main suspect after it is determined that it was her car that was used to kill her husband. Kathy turns to amateur sleuth Anne Marshall for help. Anne is convinced that Kathy is not the killer and starts an investigation. Anne must rely on the ghost of her dead father to solve this case before it is too late.

This is the first time I read a book by this author and I really enjoyed this detective mystery.

Revenge Served Cold is the follow-up to Piercing the Veil. Although I did not read the first novel in this series it was easy to follow the book. This book is a great fast read and I would highly recommend it to someone who likes a good mystery with a little twist of a ghost.

I was fortunate to receive this e-book from Cadence Marketing G

The Night Season by Chelsea Cain

The Night Season by Chelsea Cain

With the Beauty Killer Gretchen Lowell locked away behind bars once again, Archie Sheridan—a Portland police detective and nearly one of her victims—can finally rest a little easier. Meanwhile, the rest of the city of Portland is in crisis. Heavy rains have flooded the Willamette River, and several people have drowned in the quickly rising waters. Or at least that’s what they thought until the medical examiner discovers that the latest victim didn’t drown: She was poisoned before she went into the water. Soon after, three of those drownings are also proven to be murders. Portland has a new serial killer on its hands, and Archie and his task force have a new case.
Reporter Susan Ward is chasing this story of a new serial killer with gusto, but she’s also got another lead to follow for an entirely separate mystery: The flooding has unearthed a skeleton, a man who might have died more than sixty years ago, the last time Portland flooded this badly, when the water washed away an entire neighborhood and killed at least fifteen people.
With Archie following the bizarre trail of evidence and evil deeds to catch a killer and possibly regain his life, and Susan Ward close behind, Chelsea Cain—one of today’s most talented suspense writers—launches the next installment of her bestselling series with an electric thriller.

I really enjoyed this book, this is another great novel by a talented author and the fourth in this series. This novel grabbed me right from the start and just kept hold. I read all of the books in this series and this one did not disappoint. Although I really missed Gretchen Lowell in this book.
The characters are likable and interesting as always. The pace is fast with many twist and turns.
