    Murder and secrets

    San Francisco attorney Kali O'Brien is camping with her boyfriend Bryce. She gets a phone message from her brother John in Arizona who she has had limited contact with for years. She decides to call him later. After returning from her trip, she tries to contact him, but the call is short and she doesn't learn anything about why he called. Soon after she is notified he committed suicide. He is also alleged to have killed a woman he knew and the student living with her. Kali and her sister Sabrina meet up at John's. They can't believe he would kill anyone nor take his life. They set off to clear his name. Then another girl turns up dead that appears to be tied to John. And there's a missing girl also tied to him. Could he really have killed all these people? In this installment in the series, we get a bigger glimpse into Kali's personal life. I really enjoyed this book. I felt that the interaction of the two sisters was great. The mystery was very believable, and there are so many twists and turns that I couldn't figure out who the killer was until it right before it was revealed. And then I was surprised! I like that the main character is a lawyer, but I really enjoyed that this book wasn't set around a court case. It was very enjoyable. I had trouble putting the book down. I wanted to know who the killer was. I highly recommend this book.
