This review is from: Rules of Crime (A Detective Jackson Mystery) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A phone call from his daughter interrupts Detective Wade Jackson's holiday = his ex wife has been kidnapped and is being held to ransom. Renee is a supposedly recovering alcoholic but is unreliable. Ivan Anderson who she is living with is wealthy and determined to pay the ransom money but Jackson insists on involving the FBI. The ransom goes wrong and there is no sign of Renee.
Meanwhile Detective Lara Evans, a member of the Violent Crimes Unit, is investigating a vicious assault on a young woman left naked and unconscious at the entrance to the local hospital. She was living in student accommodation but there are rumours of a secret sorority, Lara has no firm leads.
This is a fast moving story with well drawn characters and excellent descriptions of their emotions. It is not until the very end that you learn who is behind it all. A great book that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout.
