Threads of Suspicion by Dee Henderson

Threads of Suspicion by Dee Henderson
(Evie Blackwell Cold Case #2)
432 pages

"Evie Blackwell's reputation as a top investigator for the Illinois State Police has landed her an appointment to the governor's new Missing Persons Task Force. This elite investigative team is launched with plenty of public fanfare. The governor has made this initiative a high priority, so they will have to produce results--and quickly.

Evie and her new partner, David Marshal, are assigned to a pair of unrelated cases in suburban Chicago... While Evie opens old wounds in a close-knit neighborhood to find a missing college student, David searches for a private investigator working for a high-powered client."  --from the publisher

"Henderson plays the faith card with subtlety, allowing the detectives to apply their beliefs to both their jobs and personal lives, and displays her usual keen understanding of the human psyche, delving into potential motives for murder as easily as she explores Evie’s reluctance to commit. All of these mysteries take unexpected, intriguing turns on their way to a satisfying finale that, nevertheless, leaves enough open doors to make fans eager for yet another installment."  --Publisher's Weekly

Dee Henderson writes "Christian Mystery" books that have a touch of romance.  Her books are good, and some of them are excellent.  The protagonists are often too good to be true, but the stories are solid.  I give this one 3 out of 5 stars.
