Drawing Fire by Janice Cantore

About the Book:

One case from her past defines homicide detective Abby Hart. With a possible serial killer stalking elderly women in Long Beach, California, Abby’s best lead is Luke Murphy, an irritating private investigator who saw a suspect flee the scene of the latest homicide.  When Abby discovers that the most recent victim is related to the governor, she’s anxious to talk to him about a cold case that’s personal to her—one Luke is interested in as well. As she learns more about the restaurant fire that took her parents’ lives years ago, Abby discovers why Luke is so invested in finding the ones responsible. The more they uncover, though, the more questions they have. Can Abby find peace without having all the answers?

My Thoughts:

Wow.  I

Janice Cantore writes with authority, having an extensive career in law enforcement.  I've enjoyed her books before, but Drawing Fire is simply outstanding.

The book gets off to a slow start, but that turns out to be a very good thing!  Once the story kicks into high gear, good luck trying to breathe!  Pages will fly fast and furious until the explosive ending, and prepare for a major cliffhanger.

Abby is tough to like in the beginning, but I grew to love her as her story progressed.  To live 27 years without answers to the one event that defined your life is unimaginable.  My heart broke for her, and turns out she's my kind of cop: honest and determined.

Luke's connection to Abby's case is revealed a layer at a time, but his integrity as a P.I. combines with Abby's tenacity to make a fantastic story even better.  The characters are memorable and the tale is intricate, holding the reader's attention from start to finish.

And the dog?  Gotta love!

One of the best books I've read, and eager for the next book!  My thanks to my friends at Tyndale Publishing for an advance copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  Highly recommended

Happy Reading!
