Private Investigator Kat Justice arrived at her friend Nancy Bodig’s darkened house. After calling 911 and leaving a phone message for her former partner, Tommy, currently Mitch’s partner, she goes inside without backup and trips over her friend’s dead body. She’s jumped by Nancy’s killer, who attempts to inject her with a syringe to silence her, too—which turns out to be propofol. When Detective Mitch Elliot arrives at Nancy’s house, he phones Kat. The call interrupts the killer, and the car chase is on with Mitch, who loses the killer at a railroad crossing.
Nancy’s twin brother, Nathan, had died two months earlier in a car accident that landed him in a ravine. Nancy accepted the ruling of no foul play until the day she decided to call his cell phone and a strange man answered. Hiring Kat to investigate her brother’s death ended in her own death and the attempted murder of Kat.
Susan Sleeman proceeds to take us on a roller coaster ride of cliff hanging danger, mounting suspense, missing ‘threat’ files, countless ‘safe house’ changes, and multiple attempts on Kat’s life. This all transpired while they tried to ID the perpetrator and Kat was in protective custody of the detectives. As investigators, no lead was too small, which made the story credible. The characters grow on you, especially the tensive romantic relationship between Kat and Mitch, her former crush. Kat’s independent and controlling behaviors made it difficult to keep her safe, which added even more tension to the story.
Kat’s constant worrying fit the Scripture verse used at the beginning of the story. Worrying doesn’t add a single hour to your life. Once confronted, she worked on relying more on the Lord through prayer, which influenced Mitch back to his faith. The author’s use of faith in the story wasn’t pushy, but gave testimony to how one’s own faith can influence another person.
I loved the unexpected outcome! I kind of saw it coming, yet it wasn’t what I figured at all. Susan has again hit another winner in her Justice Agency series. I’ll be looking forward to her next book.
This book was provided by the author in exchange for my honest review. No monetary compensation was received.
Dead wrong held my attention from page one. The characters were engaging and the storyline gripping. This is the second book in The Justice Series. I highly recommend book one as well, but each book stands alone. I was provided a copy for review purposes. This is my honest opinion and I was not required to give a positive review.
Kat Justice, private investigator and former detective, tries to solve the mystery of why and who murders her client and college friend. Surviving an assault by the same person who kills her friend, Kat knows he will try again to kill her. Identifying the killer is intense but knowing the why of the crime is another avenue the detectives travel. Since Kat is the target, she receives permission to be in on the case as an observer, working with a former coworker on the police force. A lot of mystery, some romance, twists and turns, and fear from all sides happen before the officials solve this mystery. Sleeman gives us solid, memorable characters and a rapid fire story that will keep you on the edge of your seat to the very end.
I do love a good suspense, and Susan has come through for me once again. Dead Wrong is the second book in The Justice Agency series, but you don't need to read Double Exposure to enjoy this book, though I suggest you do simply because it's good.
It has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing, and enough romantic tension to keep you on the edge of your seat.
