Book reviews - Devious

Devious


Author: Lisa Jackson
"Terrifying. . .A Creepy Thriller." –Publishers Weekly

When New Orleans detective Reuben Montoya is called to investigate a murder with his partner Rick Bentz, he's shocked to recognize the victim. Camille Renard, an old high-school friend, was found on the altar of St. Marguerite's cathedral, dressed in a yellowed bridal gown and viciously garroted. . .

"Will Satisfy Series Fans As Well As Readers Who Enjoy Lisa Gardner And Linda Fairstein." –Library Journal

Valerie Houston's younger sister, Camille, had a knack for making bad choices. She left Texas after falling for Val's soon-to-be ex-husband, Slade. But as Val digs deeper into Camille's death, she realizes how little she really knows about her sister and their shared past.

"A Nail-Biting Tale Of Dangerous Secrets And Deadly Passions." --Booklist

Soon more bodies are found brutally slaughtered. No one is beyond suspicion. No one is safe--least of all Valerie, whose connection to a twisted case is closer, and more dangerous, than she ever could have imagined. For this killer knows all, forgives nothing, and will not rest until Valerie becomes the next to pay for her sins. . .

"The plot machinations are wonderful and emotional turmoil akin to the work of James Lee Burke and Tony Hillerman helps make Devious a stunning success." –The Providence Journal
