My thoughts…

This is the fourth book in the Detective Gina Harte series by Carla Kovach and another fantastic instalment. You can read more about the series order and what’s next here.

Carla Kovach is fast becoming one of our favourite Crime Thriller Writers. We are completely hooked on this series – the back story of Gina Harte just as much as the current crimes that she is investigating. Carla gets a little darker and more sinister with each book – it’s not too much, it’s just the right amount! It’s very easy to fall into this series and not want to stop reading – the books are extremely well written, the twists and turns contained in them will have you hooked and second guessing, and the characters are brilliant.

About the Book…

Samantha stumbled out of the party and on to a busy street only ten minutes away from her home. But she never made it home…

Seven years after Samantha’s disappearance, on what would have been her thirty-fifth birthday, her best friend Diane is shocked to find a letter addressed to Samantha on her doorstep.

Opening the envelope, Diane pulls out a birthday card and a finger nail painted in dusky pink nail polish. The same shade Samantha always wore. The same shade she was wearing the night she went missing.

When police analyse the nail, they don’t get the result they expected. Instead of linking them to Samantha, the nail belongs to another woman, Jade Ashmore. And Jade was murdered the night before the envelope was delivered….

Genre: Thriller / Mystery / Crime
