#1 in Megan Scott And Michael Eliott Mystery
Average Rating: 4.0
Her cheating husband was murdered and she's the prime suspect. Proving her innocence is one thing; evading a killer who wants her dead is something else.
Betrayal. Jealousy. Revenge.
Montreal ghostwriter Megan Scott falls under police suspicion when her husband and a female companion are found murdered. In what a Quebec detective calls a crime of passion, startling evidence surfaces to also implicate Michael Elliott, a young investigative reporter who'd rather rub elbows with scumbags than live the posh lifestyle he inherited.
Clutched out of her comfort zone, Megan is flung into Michael's dark world of criminal investigation. As they make a last-ditch attempt to prove their innocence, an elusive enemy closes in and threatens their lives. Who wants them out of the way and why?
Their only path to freedom is to catch the twisted killer before they become the next victims. But not knowing who to trust or where to turn can have consequences that are just as lethal.
The motive for murder is a bit weak in this compelling mystery, but it's plausible. The romantic attraction between the two main characters is necessary for the story and isn't overdone. There are twists to the plot, but no real surprises.
Kelli Tager's performance is outstanding. She gives distinctive and appropriate voices to the characters and handles the accents and French dialog well.
