Sins of My Youth: A Charlie McClung Mystery by Mary Anne Edwards

You can run from your past, but what do you do when your past tries to kill you?

Detective Charlie McClung finds his wife's best friend standing over a dead body, bloody knife clutched in her hand. He can't believe she's guilty but it's hard to believe she's innocent with the victim's blood dripping on her shoes.

Torn between his sense of duty and his devotion to his wife, each road he travels down seems to fork into ten directions.

Another fascinating mystery by this author. Chief Charlie is emotionally invested in this one but he will not let it deter him in finding the culprit. His wife Marian is best friends with one of the women involved in this mystery and he prays he can swipe Joan' name off the list of suspects. A murder has happened behind the restaurant and it was a grisly murder. Everyone is being questioned and so many of those are even considered as suspects although most are just hiding something dark from their pasts. I had my own theory a few chapters in but wow what a shock to learn who it is. Pickup your copy if you enjoy a good mystery with a lot of suspense in there. I truly enjoyed this book. I was gifted a copy of this book for my honest review.
