Five of five stars
Goss gets right into the story on the very first page; she keeps it fast-paced and full of tantalizing tidbits right to the very last page. This is a story that has you developing – and dropping – theories and villains with each new chapter; an engagement that is palpable. It’s clear that Goss in her element in this genre.
Fatal Limit’s heroine is a private investigator named Dora. Her boyfriend is a homicide detective. How the two handle their sometimes entangled cases is part of what makes the narrative work, and keeps it intriguing. I give credit to him that he listens to her and soon sees the truth and what she sees. He doesn’t just slough off her insights and that’s refreshing. It shows he’s a smart man too.
Sheila’s murder is no exception. With all the “experts” saying it was an unfortunate accident, Dora – and her best friend and Sheila’s niece Maddie – are convinced there is far more to this. The fact that Dora was waiting for Sheila when it happened and saw it, goes even further to convince her that this is her case to solve.
Well written, with characters that are so well drawn as to almost be real, Goss is masterful and keeping the suspense flowing. A truly great read that I highly recommend; I’ll be looking for more from this new-to-me author.
