The Other Child (Maggie Novak Thriller Book 3) Kindle Edition
When a prominent judge is found stabbed to death on Valentine's weekend in what appears to be a crime of passion, homicide detective Maggie Novak knows her skills are about to be put on trial.
Bobby Russell is everybody's favorite judge, and at first Maggie is hard-pressed to find anyone with anything bad to say about him, let alone someone harboring a hatred so deep that they will kill him over it. But as she peels back the layers of his life, and the eyewitness to his murder goes missing, Maggie is faced with the very real prospect that beneath the judge's perfect surface deadly undercurrents lurk.
To uncover the truth, Maggie must first expose the judge's darkest secret, one that reaches deep inside his private life and into the death of his daughter.
A child's life hangs in the balance and a coldblooded killer is at large. Will the scales of justice tip in Maggie's favor in time for her to save the day?

Well written, had me in at the first page and just kept me turning those pages too quickly!

I came across Crash by accident, I think it was on special.....well, what a page turner, it almost left me breathless and I couldn't put it down until I'd finished it. I was hooked on Keith Houghton!!
His style is fast, unusual, and leaves you wanting more, and I devoured them as quickly as the next book was there.
Then came Don't Even Breath, that left me breathless.....that was my word, Keith had pinched my word to describe his first Maggie Novak book....what a cheek, but when we met Maggie Novak, that's just how she left us, so I decided not to sue, and to just enjoy.
I love Maggie's maverick character, along with her partner Loomis, you care about them and what happens to them......and plenty does. I can't wait to finish each book and get onto the next one, but when I finished The Other Child, last night, I realised that there isn't a next one.....at least, not yet. So, my only complaint about this brilliant writer, is that he doesn't write quickly enough!
I highly recommend Keith Houghton, the stand alones, and the series, and I suggest turning your phone off, because you will not want to be disturbed.....other than how Keith leaves you. Enjoy, I know you will. 😃
If you're new to Maggie Novak's 'life', Iwould suggest you read books 1 and 2. If you, like me, have been waiting on the third book in the series, what can I say? Enjoy - be prepared for later nights and pre-order the 4th book so you don't miss it!
I was guessing that the killer was one of the other characters, how wrong was i? Never saw the twist at the end coming either. Can't wait for Maggie's next case, and to find out how she truly feels about her fiancé and if they will ever make it down the aisle!!!
Keep them coming Keith! x
As a stand alone story it is great following the ongoing saga, I feel like I know the characters personally
Each book has some great twists in the tale... keeps you turning the pages for hours and not wanting to put the book down
Roll on next April for the next book.
There is obviously a great deal of research carried out and his writing is superb, cannot wait for the next one!
