Overview

His partner is killed. His girlfriend takes off. His job is hanging by a thread...

Chicago Homicide Detective Ryan Doherty has one last chance to save his career--solving the case of Scott and Carly Redding, ad execs who each appear to have died of natural causes...on the same night. And there are hundreds of people who could've wanted the Reddings dead, including every ex-employee of their high-powered firm, Town Red Media.

At the top of the list is Catharine Lulling, a former VP at Town Red Media. Ryan becomes obsessed with Catharine: she is charming, intelligent, wealthy, and possesses psychic abilities he can't even understand. Drawn into her unconventional world, he risks the case--and his life--to find out if she's the real thing, or the real killer.

Moss did an excellent job of character development, as well as doing her homework on cop-speak and police procedures. Not that I'm an expert, of course, but the story had a nice ring of truth to it. I felt authentic, as if the author did her research and knew what she was talking about when it came to things like police polices and interrogation of suspects. The plot has a lot of nice and interesting twists and turns to it that kept me reading long after I should have stopped.

own Red by Jennifer Moss was an extremely intriguing paranormal mystery. Not sure if that is a real genre, but that's what I'd call it. Yeah, it did have some romantic elements, but that was a minor sub-plot and didn't really detract from the intensity of the story. Actually, it seemed to have the best of both worlds.

Great book!  The story keeps you guessing until the very end.  The writing is excellent, and the attention to detail really makes you feel like you're in the story.  I've never been to Chicago, but after reading the story, I feel like I'v recently visited the city. I checked out the author, Jennifer Moss, on Facebook.  It looks like she's working on a sequel.  Can't wait!
