Chavez (Blood Will Tell) offers a smart, fast-paced thriller about two women searching for answers after a school shooting. Botany professor Julia Bennett, divorced mother of Cora, is waiting in line for move-in day at Anderson Hughes College when shots ring out. Julia shields Cora, but others close to them aren’t so lucky. In the aftermath of the shooting, Julia begins to wonder if the violence wasn’t random after all. Ren Petrovic is a second-generation assassin who lives by a highly developed moral code. Four months pregnant with her first child, Ren is also unsettled by the shooting, but for different reasons. Ren suspects that her husband, also an assassin, may have been secretly involved. Award-winning narrator Megan Tusing delivers a stellar performance with well-developed portraits of Julia and Ren, intriguing women who will do what it takes to defend their families while seeking the truth. Tusing employs spot-on pacing to drive the story to its clever and unexpected ending.
VERDICT Full of twists and turns, this edgy, character-driven thriller is recommended for fans of Ruth Ware, Tana French, and Gillian Flynn.
