From the Back Cover: A determined daughter . . .A skeptical detective . . .A deadly secret . . .
The police say her father’s death was suicide. Kelly Warren says it was murder–and she has new evidence to prove it. Detective Cole Taylor doesn’t put much credence in her claim, and nothing in his case review suggests foul play. But when he digs deeper (delete dash) and discovers startling information linking her to a long-buried secret, the danger escalates. Is history repeating itself? And who wants Kelly silenced?
The police ruled Kelly Warren’s father’s death a suicide. However, she did not believe that so she went hunting for proof that her father was murdered. She got the proof and brought it to police headquarters. Now the investigation has been reopened from suicide to murder and Kelly’s life is now in great danger. Cole needs to catch the killer before he makes Kelly his next victim. As always with an Irene Hannon novel there is mounting suspense that seems to squeeze the breath out of you. In “Lethal Legacy” Ms. Hannon seems to have written her best story yet. Kelly’s life in great jeopardy and this thriller becomes more and more exciting with the last hundred pages being an extremely wild ride. All I can say is imagine going on a roller coaster ride. At the beginning there is just the climb to the top but once you get to the top and experience that first drop then it is nothing but twists, turns, upside down loops until the ride ends. This is what Ms. Hannon does to us as readers with this book.
In ”Lethal Legacy” the theme of family relationships, and how they can impact a person’s entire life, runs throughout the book—affecting both the good guys and the bad guys! Family matters—that’s a key message of this book. This is a fun read, it is a fast read, however I do not recommend starting this book late at night because it will cost you sleep as you will not want to put it down. Ms. Hannon is an excellent writer who knows how to twist your nerve endings as she tightens the suspense. I recommend this book, and everything else that Ms. Hannon has written, highly!!
