Action Packed Page Turner – Lethal Beauty by Lis Wiehl

About this Book

Mia Quinn discovers that a series of seemingly unrelated murders are linked. How far up are the strings being pulled—and what happens when one of her own is at risk?

The murder Mia is prosecuting seems like an open and shut case—until the accused claims he was the real victim and that the dead girl attacked him first. The tabloids dub her a “lethal beauty.” Still, a conviction seems imminent. Then a key witness goes missing. Just when it looks like the killer could walk free, the dead woman’s mother takes matters into her own hands.

Meanwhile, Charlie Carlson, a Seattle homicide detective, is investigating the murder of a man whose body washed up on the beach of Puget Sound, but he’s got little to go on. He has no dental work, fingerprints aren’t on file, and he doesn’t match any missing person reports. Then a church pianist is senselessly gunned down before horrified parishioners.

All three cases seem unrelated—but are they? Together, Mia and Charlie race to find the answer before another crime hits too close to home.

My Review

This is the third book in the Mia Quinn series and each one is better than the one before. The author has done an excellent job with these characters and their development. The poignant story in deals with the problem of human trafficking in a well written and engaging manner.

Mia, Charlie, and Eli are front and center once again in this story. I like Mia, she is strong but real with her struggles. Charlie has grown on me, with his slightly unorthodox ways. Eli, is interesting and I’m looking forward to seeing where the author takes this group and who will end up with Mia.

Although the third book in the series you could start with this book. The author gives enough history to have an idea of where the characters come from, yet doesn’t bog the story down with too many details. In this book the author deals with a tough subject of human trafficking and modern day slavery.

I would definitely recommend this book to a friend to those who like legal thrillers.

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.

  1. Last night I started a book by Davis Bunn, Florian’s Gate. I’ve enjoyed every book that I’ve read by Davis Bunn, so I’m expecting that I will enjoy this one, also. This is an older book that was reissued in 2013. I’ve heard good things about the whole series.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
