It’s always a good month when a new Dee Henderson book hits the shelves!
Threads of Suspicion is the second book focused on Evie Blackwell and Illinois’s Missing Persons Task Force. Much to my delight, it continues Henderson’s habit of appearances by previous characters – Ann and Paul Falcon, Sharon Noble, John Lawson, and even a mention of Bryce Bishop. Now if only she’d bring Mark Bishop back for a cameo! Or Joe “Bear” Baker and his SEAL team….
Dee Henderson’s books often feature law enforcement or military characters and plots, and I love the mysterious atmosphere she’s created in this one. Threads of Suspicion splits its focus between two cases: Evie’s investigation into a missing college student, and her partner David Marshall’s into a PI’s disappearance. Neither cop anticipates the overlap between their cases – or how their investigation will reveal danger stalking David’s fiancée Maggie. And…you’ll just have to read it yourself to find out what happens! 😉
I liked how the partnership between David and Evie is so central to the plot. The author focuses on this relationship, though we still see plenty of the pair’s personal lives. Evie and David have never worked together before this task force, but they quickly grow to appreciate one another’s dedication and friendship. Their cases take some interesting twists and turns through the Midwest. As a girl who grew up doing puzzles and reading Nancy Drew mysteries, I adored this novel.
A fantastic addition to the Dee Henderson shelf in my personal library. It was SO good – a little romance, a little mystery, and a whole lotta puzzle-solving. Can’t wait to read what comes next! 🙂
My rating: 5/5 stars
