Rock-a-Bye Baby
by Luke Murphy

#2 in Charlene Taylor Mystery

Category:  Mystery

Average Rating:  4.0

An aunt's worst nightmare….

In the city of Denver, a series of baby kidnappings has the town devastated. With no ransom demands and no contact from the perpetrators, local law enforcement is at a dead end. No motive equals no answers.

A cop's personal obsession….

Charlene Taylor's niece becomes a victim, and the LAPD detective is thrown headfirst into a whirlwind case with similarities to one from seven years earlier. Out of her jurisdiction, and with no friends or leads, Charlene must walk-the-line between cop and sister.

Who can she trust?

Charlene has to decide who's an ally, and when an unlikely partner steps forward, they must race against the clock: because that critical 48 hour window has come and gone.

This is a twisty, suspenseful mystery with some pretty compelling characters. Charlene Taylor pulls herself together a bit more in this second book of the series, but some of her issues still make it hard to really like her as a character. The story is engaging with a satisfactory ending. And Sharon Huff continues to perform well.

NOTE: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
