She knows, deep in her heart, that her father did not commit suicide.She just has to prove it to the authorities.
Taking new evidence in hand, Warren lands in front of Detective Cole Taylor's workload. While he is skeptical at first, further inquiries and some revealing evidence about Warren's past unpack evidence that is surprising and unexpected.
In a style I thoroughly enjoy, Irene Hannon has once again "hit it out of the ball park" with her newest mystery/suspense novel, Lethal Legacy.
Book three in the Guardians of Justice series, this book follows the story of Cole Taylor, the third and final Taylor sibling.
Hannon has crafted this novel with some surprising twists and turns. It pulls in a variety of legal themes - and I'll admit, the ultimate villain was a surprise.
It's a novel based upon the strength of one woman, and the guy who believes her, even when things seem like they are stacked against her.
I really like how Hannon has linked the storyline of the three novels through the siblings, yet each can stand alone as a solid manuscript. (So many times trilogies market themselves as stand alone, but the dialogue contains too many references to the first books to live up to the claim.)
If you are looking for a solid book to read, that combines suspense, mystery and a wee bit of romance, I thoroughly recommend this book and series. On a scale of one to five, I give it at least a four and half.
