Avid reader/reviewer and editor. I don't pull punches when I review, love it or hate it, you get what I think.
When I read the blurb for this one, I was reasonably sure that I knew the direction this tale would take. In part, I was right, but only in part. My interest was piqued from the first chapter and that interest grew steadily as the story played out. From one shocking incident to the next, Gardner paints a picture of narcissistic sociopath. Instead of asking whodunit, you're asking yourself who will be next. With lots of secrets and twists, Deadly Partnership is certainly a page turner and the supernatural element adds an intriguing element. I realize that I'm being vague with this one, but almost any detail would give spoilers and this shocking tale should be read spoiler free.
