Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Spider Hunting by KJ McGillick

 

It’s never what it seems.

A murder of a high-profile law partner on a Manhattan street should have made the front page of the news. And yet it didn’t. Drew Bradley’s murder was treated as just another senseless crime and relegated to page four of the evening edition. But what if the press had been privy to the fact that the murder was actually an assassination?

As the partners at Lannister and Stewart scramble to fill the vacuum left by Drew Bradley’s sudden death, Asia Blythe, a rising star in the firm is offered his coveted position. But this golden opportunity that brings with it power, prestige, and unlimited financial rewards demands adherence to a code. A code of allegiance to the firm with no exceptions. Catapulted into the world of genetically modified designer babies and state-sponsored espionage, is Asia prepared to deal with the intrigues of a world that will threaten her life and shatter her illusions?

 

My Review:

What a brilliant suspense filled page turner this proved to be! Asia Blythe is a lawyer working in the Lannister and Stewart practice. She’s hoping to go for partnership in three or so years time but the murder of one of the partners means she’s having to cover some of his cases and is offered a partnership buy-in much sooner than she’d planned. The case she’s covering, however, is fraught with unexplained discrepancies and, as his secretary was sacked within hours of his death, there’s no one in the know she can get the answers from. As she starts looking into the case, she uncovers more and more facts that unsettle her. With Sam, an investigator and her secret partner, the two set out to discover just what is involved. This is a fast paced, thrilling read involving murder, mystery, designer babies, espionage, treason and life threatening danger, a story guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat unable to put this fascinating story down until you’ve finished it!

This author is becoming one of my favourite go to writers of intriguing suspense reads and if you’ve not read anything by her, I really recommend you give her a try! Her characters are brought to life, believable and well developed, the main characters’ dilemmas, emotional turmoil and lives brilliantly portrayed and the story is riveting, keeping me engrossed to the very end. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my copy of this book which I voluntarily read and have honestly reviewed.
