Good Sunday morning, and Happy Easter everyone! I hope this finds you doing well.

This week’s read was by an author I’ve recently discovered, Alafair Burke, and the book was Missing Justice. While the author was new to me, the book isn’t recent, having been published over ten years ago. Nonetheless, I really liked it, and of course, I read it out of order. This was the second book in the series, so I’ll be reading the first one next week. I never seem to do these things in sequence…

Anyway, in this story, Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid, finds herself newly promoted and hot on the trail of a missing person’s case, a prominent female judge in the city of Portland, OR. Initially everyone assumed the judge would turn up safe and sound. But when that didn’t happen, authorities started looking at the husband, and then at the lover, and then at a disgruntled letter-writer, and then…well, holy cow. When Samantha finally figures out who was responsible for the judge’s demise, she finds herself the next target on the killer’s list.

Missing Justice had a perfect mix of suspense, humor, and intrigue, and I’m happy to have found another great author. There were a lot of twists and turns in this story, and it had me guessing until the end. So now I’ll have to back up and get started on the first book in the series; I hope I like that one as much. And I hope you do, too! So give Missing Justice a try, and let me know what you think. ‘Til next week, happy reading! 🙂
