#3 in Ellie Foreman Mystery
Average Rating: 4.0
A surveillance tape showing the murder of a young woman is left on Chicago TV documentary producer, Ellie Foreman's doorstep. When she hands the video to police, they're not interested in who the woman was. Except Officer Georgia Davis, who joins Ellie to solve the crime.
A little digging reveals that the murder victim was a diamond courier with a dark history forged in Eastern Europe after the collapse of the USSR. And a little more digging leads them back home to money laundering, shady real estate deals, and the deadly price of dealing in diamonds.
It's difficult to believe these people would really make these decisions and behave this way, but forgiving the author her use of poetic license, this is an exciting, suspenseful mystery. The romantic tension between Ellie and David gets a bit tiresome -- instead, I wish the daughter's character was more fully developed.
Nan McNamara gives the characters distinct and appropriate voices. It's a good match of narrator with story. I continue to enjoy this series.
NOTE: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
