Review:

This may be Leigh's best Peterson novel yet! The reader is guessing for motives for the suspect, just like Ian. The case's mystery motive leads the team in so many different directions, and when they think they have the solution, they are wrong. And then as another incident occurs, they have to change their thinking yet again. Are they finally on the right track, or another red herring? This is a super page turner that will have the mystery reader delighting in Peterson at his best! I can't wait to see the next book, and the changes that come at the end to Petersen in this book! I highly recommend it!
