Dead Secret (Maggie Jamieson thriller, Book 4)
OH. MY. GOODNESS! What a cliff-hanger to end a book on!! I’m so glad I have book 5 ready to dive into! It has been published today!
Happy Publication Day, Noelle! 🙂
Dead Secret is book 4 in Noelle Holten’s Maggie Jamieson thriller series. It is an awesome series! I have loved all four books so far and I’m very much looking forward to getting stuck into Dead Mercy.
In this book Maggie, and the team, are faced with the murder of a young man with mysterious black dots on his cheek. At the same time her colleague, Lucy, is dealing with a domestic violence survivor with familiar, but worrying, behaviour. As if that isn’t enough to deal with, they discover one of their own is missing. Each case seemingly unconnected until evidence begins to suggest otherwise. It’s a race against time and I certainly felt the urgency throughout the police procedural aspects of this story. It must be so frustrating for police officers when nothing makes any sense. I wouldn’t be able to do their job for all the money in the world!
I love the characters throughout this book. Maggie is such a likeable character. I enjoy getting to know her a little bit more with each book. I don’t really understand what she sees in that reporter, if I’m honest, other than the obvious physical attraction. It would be nice to see her find happiness, or at least a bit of fun, with someone though.
One character in this story is particularly terrifying. Wow! Hats off to Noelle Holten for this creation. It felt like my blood ran cold on more than one occasion. It also raises the question again of nature versus nurture.
I can’t recommend this book highly enough. It is fast-paced, full of suspense, and horrifying at times. I loved it!
