Threads of Suspicion by Dee Henderson

 "God appreciates justice even more then we do, so it makes sense that He'd be interested in helping us find it." - David Marshal, Threads of Suspicion

 Hey Readers,
I have a new book for you to check out called Threads of Suspicion by Dee Henderson. It is a interesting book showing the difficulties and trials that go into solving a crime, Especially one that has gone cold.
I would recommend this book if you:
  • Like any other books by Dee Henderson
  • Like to watch Police TV shows such as CSI or Conviction
  • Like to play the game of clue or solve mysteries with lots of twists and turns
  • want to read a new book =)

So Threads of Suspicion by Dee Henderson is the story of Lieutenant Evie Blackwell who has just joined the newly formed Missing Persons Task Force. Their job was to investigate cold cases where a missing person was never found and hopefully find the person or bring closure to their families. Because this Task Force was set up by the Governor, The political stakes are high so this team will have to quickly show results.  Evie is given the case of Jenna Greenhill, a college student who disappeared after attending a concert about ten years ago. Evie begins her investigation by looking into events before and after Jenna’s disappearance but nothing stands out. It appears that Jenna went to a Triple M concert with some friends of hers and then went home and was reported missing by her best friend three days after. As she looks at the reports, everything shows that Jenna was a sweet college girl who was liked by everyone but as Evie looks deeper than the reports, she finds people in Jenna’s circle that disliked her, who said that she was a two-faced cheater who liked to get what she could not have.  So which was it? She could not be both, Could she?   
Evie decides to look at it from a different angle; Maybe Jenna was taken by someone who has done this before. The crime seemed to be flawless, no clues anywhere, so it was definitely pre-meditated. Since it occurred after a concert, could it be someone who liked music? Could it have been someone jealous of Jenna’s musical talents?  As Evie digs deeper into her theory that Jenna's disappearance was connected to the concert, she discovers that there were a couple of other disappearances in the surrounding states that all occurred after a Triple M concert.    Could they be looking at a serial killer? If so why has he or she not struck in years?
As Evie pulls the threads of the case hoping to unravel the mystery behind Jenna’s disappearance, will she be able to find out who did it and protect the next girl?                            

What did I think? 
First this is book 2 in the Evie Blackwell Cold Case Series but I read it as a stand alone. The cover is kind of creepy and you find out what exactly is pictured but the story itself is not creepy at all.  The overall plot is good and it is very interesting how they go about solving a case that seems to have gone cold with no leads. The middle of the book seemed to lag a bit in the middle but being realistic, When solving a crime or a puzzle there are times when it seems like nothing is happening, so I guess it just made it more realistic. There is nothing graphic about the crimes except they do find a body. I liked Evie's partner David and his Girlfriend/fiancé Maggie but I was disappointed at the outcome of Evie and Rob's relationship. Overall it was a good book, I give it 3 out of 5 stars.***
