Zebra: Kensington. Nov. 2014. 400p. ISBN 9781420132113. pap. $7.99; ebk. ISBN 9781420132120. ROMANTIC SUSPENSE
Defense attorney Rachel Wainwright wants justice for her client Jeb Jones, and that means a DNA test that might prove he didn't commit the murder he was convicted of 30 years ago. Yet getting things moving isn't easy, and homicide detective Deke Morgan, whose late father worked on that case, is reluctant to resurrect the whole thing, especially when he has another brutal murder on his plate. But someone else doesn't want the truth to come out and will stop at nothing to see that it stays buried.
VERDICT With sharp detail, a nicely developed romance, and stellar plotting that distributes clues with chilling precision, Burton's latest "lock your door and keep the lights on" thriller beautifully kicks off her new series of four Nashville-set mysteries dealing with the Morgan family. Burton (You're Not Safe) lives in Virginia.
