There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Having read Lisa Greys earlier Jessica Shaw mystery, I was keen to read this one and it did not disappoint.
Her characters are very well constructed, the story intertwines and was not in any way predictable.
It is second book in a ( I presume) "Jessica Shaw" series. Well written, with believable story line and good characters and a twist.
I am looking forward for the next book.

Following on from her exploits in the first book of this series called Thin Air. Where, private investigator Jessica Shaw escaped with her life and found exactly where her roots are from.
For the time been. Jessica has decided to stay in California. Residing, in a place off the beaten track. Whilst there, she is requested to help a woman who has been on death row for around thirty years.
Within days Rue Hunter is due to be executed. Jessica try’s to find some evidence to prevent this.
However, everywhere Jessica inquires. People have their own opinion that Miss Hunter is guilty. These people also have friends with power and influence. Who are of the same view.
It is a strong belief that anyone doing research into this incident is to be eliminated. Jessica soon finds that she is the intended target, to stop amnesty being granted on this occasion.
Once again the plot was very original, based around a woman, Rue Hunter, on death row who is due to be executed in just over a week's time. Her sister asks PI Jessica Shaw to try to find evidence to exonerate Rue, even though Rue confessed to the murder of her two high school friends.
Once again, a sub plot runs alongside. This concerns the murder of a police officer. As the story develops it emerges that there is a link between the two crimes.
I thought all the characters were well drawn, especially Jessica who doesn't hesitate to bend the rules whenever she feels the need arises (which is quite often).
I hope Lisa Gray keeps this series going, as you can see I'm a big fan.
