Deadly Lies

Deadly Lies (The Jill Shannon Murder Series, #1) - Chris Patchell

This one is a bit of slow build and took me awhile to get into, but I have to say that the more I learned about the characters and their back story, the more my curiosity was piqued about where the story would go. From the beginning, Jill is not a likable character. She's cold and seems to have little regard for others. Of course, it doesn't take long to figure out that we aren't supposed to like her. I was left with a bit of a head scratch about Alex's jumps in logic in his investigation, but it certainly makes for some rising tension. The story is part vigilante/serial killer thriller and part crime drama, and the conclusion kept me turning pages and was certainly a jaw-dropping, I didn't expect that development. I'll be interested to see where it all goes from here.
