Overview

CAN A MURDER VICTIM'S OWN MEMORIES BE USED TO SOLVE A CRIME?

Detective Veronica Sloan isn't shocked by much. Having lived through the worst terrorist attacks in history-which destroyed much of Washington, D.C.-she's immune to even the most vicious brutality. But even she is stunned by the discovery of a murder in the basement of the under-reconstruction White House.

Sloan and FBI Agent Jeremy Sykes have been assigned to investigate the homicide because the victim was a participant in a top-secret experiment. Veronica has been training for just this kind of case, waiting to use her special skills, anxious to learn if a recording device implanted in a victim's head can help solve their murder....before the killer strikes again.

    Definite 5 stars!

    DON'T LOOK AWAY is a stunning beginning to the Veronica Sloan series. Leslie A. Kelly does a remarkable job introducing characters, main and secondary alike. I found the writing easy to follow, incredibly well done--from pacing to dialogue, to how much was revealed and when, to the culmination at the end. It was an exciting read that I was loathe to put down....even when it was ridiculously late at night and I found myself saying, "just 'til the end of the chapter, just a few more pages, just 'til the end of the scene." Yeah, right!--not the way Ms. Kelly writes! I found it wicked hard to put down.

    DON'T LOOK AWAY is set in 2022, in a United States that looks so much like ours, and yet so very different. The story world she created is so freaking believable, so true to human nature, so REAL that the suspense in this thriller lived up to its genre in every way. The futuristic science-fiction (but oh, so possible with the way medical technology is progressing) element was an integral part of the plot, and I'm very impressed with how the author introduced the subject, wove it throughout the novel, and made it a key part of the whole story. Looking back, I'm confident there wasn't a single scene, a single idea, a single character introduced who didn't MATTER, completely, to the story. WOW-- it's not every day that happens.

    Fabulous police procedural (though far from encumbered by it) rich with suspense (in every meaning of the word). The romantic thread WORKED...and I found the characterizations and personalities in Veronica (Ronnie), her (police) partner and best friend Mark Daniels, and FBI competition/partner/nemesis Jeremy Sykes. For the genre, the amount of romance was JUST RIGHT. I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series (DON'T EVER STOP) which is already cued up in my library. Cant' wait to dive in!

    Kudos to Leslie A. Kelly for an incredible book. I highly recommend it to fans of thrillers, suspense, mysteries, police procedural novels, etc. (Contains strong language [in small amounts], sex, graphic violence. IMHO, not for the faint-of-heart or youth.)

    I love a really good mystery or thriller. I was lucky enough to get a review copy from the author through NetGalley. I actually purchased my print copy even before I finished reading my digital copy.
    I absolutely loved Don’t Look Away! It is set in the future just enough years for all the technology to be believable without being too out there. I also love books set in the future, and this one was very well done.
    Veronica Sloan is a totally kick-ass character and I loved her from the very beginning. She and her partner Mark Daniels have worked well together for years and are pulling into what appears to be a typical murder except the victim was a participant in a top-secret experiment. Once Ronnie is attacked by the killer, FBI Agent Jeremy Sykes is called in to assist in the investigation. Jeremy and Ronnie trained together and have clashed from day one. They have amazing chemistry and I couldn’t wait for them to finally get together. 
    I have to say I guessed the wrong killer in the beginning. I love when that happens with a thriller. I did figure it out right before the killer was revealed, but not the reason why. Leslie Smith totally kept me on the edge of my seat reading this book. I can’t wait to see where she takes this series in the future. Don’t Ever Stop, book 2 in the series is currently set to release on July 15, 2013.
