A Matter of Trust

Borrow Borrow

When life is murder, who can you trust? One minute Mia Quinn is in her basement, chatting on the phone with a colleague at the prosecutor's office. The next minute there's a gunshot over the line, and Mia listens in horror as her colleague and friend Colleen bleeds to death. Mia's a natural for heading up the murder investigation, but these days it's all she can do to hold her life together. As a new widow with a pile of debts, a troubled teenaged son, and a four-year-old who wakes up screaming at night, she needs more time with her family, not less -- and working Colleen's case will be especially demanding. But Colleen was her friend, and she needs to keep her job. So she reluctantly teams up with detective Charlie Carlson to investigate Colleen's death. But the deeper they dig, the more complications unfold -- even the unsettling possibility that someone may be coming after her. Lis Wiehl's signature plot twists and relatable characters shine in this absorbing series debut . . .with an intriguing cameo from her best-selling Triple Threat series.

    January 7, 2013
    This suspenseful first in a new series from Wiehl and Henry (Eyes of Justice and three other Triple Threat novels) opens with a bang. While Mia Quinn, a prosecutor in the King County (Wash.) district attorney’s office, is on the phone with a fellow prosecutor, Colleen Miller, someone shoots Colleen dead. Mia’s boss, DA Frank D’Amato, asks her to lead the investigation into Colleen’s death, which could have a link to the murder of another prosecutor four years earlier. Meanwhile, Mia is also working the case of a bullied teenager who committed suicide, and trying to raise her teenage son and preschool daughter, as well as coping with her husband’s death. Trust becomes the centerpiece—who deserves it and the betrayal that trust sometimes leads to—in a story full of twists and turns that also offers a hint of future romance for Mia.

    Wiehl and Henry get their new series off to a breathless start: on a cellphone, recently widowed prosecutor Mia Quinn, protagonist of the series, overhears her friend and colleague Colleen Miller being shot. Narrator Eleni Pappageorge channels Quinn’s intensity, but uses skillful pacing and tone rather than frantic vocals to convey the novel’s swiftly unfolding events. The authors have created an appealing lead in the still-grieving Mia, who is a bit overwhelmed by the responsibilities of single parenthood and leading an investigation into her friend’s murder. Equally appealing is Quinn’s partner, homicide detective Charlie Carlson, whose unconventional methods Quinn doesn’t trust. Pappageorge crisply presents the twists and turns of plot, while using subtle touches to suggest the characters’ moods. A Thomas Nelson hardcover.

  • AudioFile Magazine Wiehl and Henry introduce their new series featuring Mia Quinn, a recently widowed federal prosecutor in Seattle. The first-person story includes cutting-edge investigative techniques of murder and of online bullying that has led to a teen suicide. Narrator Eleni Pappageorge captures Mia's struggles with grief, single parenting, and the discovery of her husband's secret financial devastation. The antagonism between Mia and Charlie, the homicide detective assigned to the investigation, is delivered with a subtle humor and sensitivity that suggests a potential romance later in the series. Pappageorge's depiction of Gabe, Mia's teenage son, who is torn between the confusion of grief and wanting to belong, is insightful and true to life. Her versatile range and vocal skills perfectly render a gripping suspense with a completely unexpected ending. G.D.W. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine
