Review: Threads of Suspicion (An Evie Blackwell Cold Case) by Dee Henderson

About this Book

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, and while both involve persons now missing for several years, the cases couldn’t be more different. 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.

With a deep conviction that “justice for all” truly matters, Evie and David are unrelenting in their search for the truth. But Evie must also find answers to the questions that lie just beneath the surface in her personal life.


My Review

I love Evie! I love the way she thinks and how passionate she is about her work. I also love how she is uncertain in some areas of her life. She’s far from the “perfect” crime fighter.

In this story we meet David Marshal fellow task force member and boyfriend of a well known singer, Margaret May McDonald. I really like David. He brought another level of strategy to solving the cold cases they were faced with. The story line between him and Maggie was excellent and not yet resolved.

One of the things I love about Henderson’s stories is how she weaves characters from her other books into the current one. In this book I especially enjoyed how she weaved Charlotte Bishop into the story.  (We met Charlotte in Unspoken. )

The story was also very well done. Henderson gives some misdirection throughout in trying to solve what happened to Jenna.  As many of Henderson’s recent books this one is over 400 pages, but it moves at a good pace and she doesn’t bury us with too much detail.

Definitely recommend me this to Henderson fans and if you are new to Dee Henderson this would be a very good story to start with. Although, it is a book two you can read it independently from book one.

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.
