Few Words About This Book

On a bitterly cold January evening, Tracy Ellis went for a jog along Chicago’s snowy lake front and disappeared. Her body is discovered days later, her beautiful face bashed in with a rock. Police determine her brutal death to be a mugging gone wrong and drop the matter into their cold case files.

Over a year later, Tracy’s sister, Sondra, still can’t come to grips with what happened. She throws herself into her work as a documentary filmmaker to try and forget the cruelty of her sister’s death. However, a chance encounter with a man from Tracy’s past rips the wound open and sends Sondra on a desperate search for answers about the secrets from her sister’s life that may have led to her death.

As Sondra struggles to uncover what happened to Tracy, she’s launched into a tangled web of deceit and danger that put her on a collision course with life and death.

I am a new reader of Bianca Sloane and after this book, I am definitely a new fan!

This book grips you from the beginning and after every chapter, you just have to read the next one…it’s a real psychological thriller that keeps you intrigued to the very last page, where there’s a twist I did not see coming!

This book had me hooked from the prologue. It is an unusual perspective on the murder mystery genre and hooks the reader in with a really good tale, well described characters and an intriguing plot. We have a weak but controlling man who marries a successful television producer and is disappointed when she will not give up her life to cater to his needs exclusively. After she is murdered he marries his high school sweetheart and coerces her into being the wife he has always wanted. We also have a successful, determined, chain smoking, self admittedly irritating, award winning documentary maker who, having been out of the country at the time her sister was murdered, decides to make a new documentary about the searches for the killers of black women, and the killers of white women, and how they differ. Ultimately what she discovers is almost completely incredible.

Even the more peripheral characters are realistic, but not given more attention than their place in the story merits, thereby not allowing them to overwhelm people and events which are more important to the narrative.

I enjoyed this intnriguing book and found it hard to put down at times as I was eager to see how Sondra would fit all the pieces into place. Some of what happened begins to reveal itself from around halfway through the book, but fear not, it is not as straightforward as you might think. The author saves a lot for the end, and the final twist is quite a surprise – and not just to the reader! I enhoyed it so much that I have downloaded another book by this author, but I think she will struggle to match this one, she couldn’t use this plot device twice! I do hope however, that her imagination is just as good in her other books, if so, it will be another great read.
