Overview

Nothing Done in Secret by Scott Edwards

Realtor Veronica Gillis is loud and aggressive and some people hate her. Police Captain Alexander Moffat, routinely described as soft-spoken and kind, begins the first homicide investigation of his new job in California’s picturesque Gold Country when her body is discovered at the church she planned to convert to condominiums.

Moffat and young Sergeant Jason De la Peña quickly identify six suspects each with a motive and no alibi. Then, less than twenty-four hours later, a man in a ski mask attacks Nicole Davies and Moffat finds reason to believe his predecessors overlooked a pattern of crimes going back three decades.

The Gillis and Davies cases tug for Moffat’s attention. Dogged and thoughtful police work yields leads including DNA matches that are not human, surveillance video that unravels two alibis, ballistics evidence linking two murders and newspaper clippings from 1970 that hold vital clues. Along the way, Moffat stages a successful decoy operation, is drawn into a dangerous stand off at the high school with an armed teenage suspect and narrowly escapes death when the manhunt for the serial killer turns into a high speed car chase.

About the Author

Nothing Done in Secret is my first novel. I have a master’s degree in management and have worked for over twenty years leading engineering teams on NASA and other aerospace programs. This experience in science and emphasis on attention to detail were valuable in the process of creating a complex investigation plot. These years also gave me countless opportunities to observe human behavior under all circumstances.

This 390 page book was pretty good. Unfortunately the editing was not. Its really bad, when the author gets people's names mixed up, misspells them and mixes up genders. This is not a fast read. Sometimes books of this length zip along, but this one took about 8 hours. There is a lot of characters in this book and the author uses titles, first or last names or nick names to refer to them. Once again I had to resort to a list, until I could keep everyone straight. This book is part of a series and it is also a stand alone book which is nice. I would read other books by this author. There is murder, but no other violence or adult themes. It is a police, murder mystery. For ages 16 and up. AD

It was ok but it jumped around too much. There was just too much going on at once to make much sense and part of it wasnt even resolved at the end. Wouldnt really recommend or read anything else from this author.
