Hachette Audio. Mar. 2022. 11:46 hrs. ISBN 9781549164637. $25.98. SUSPENSE
Desiree Scott, a Black reality star, is found dead on a Bronx playground just after her 25th birthday. Everyone, including the police, consider it an open-and-shut case, except for her sister Lena Scott. In an effort to find the truth behind her sister’s untimely death, Lena embarks on a twisty, red-herring-filled search to suss out her sister’s true cause of death, using her sister’s various social media accounts to recreate her final days and find the killer. Garrett’s (“Detective by Day” series) new novel is a suspense-filled psychological thriller. Garrett also uses the book to wrestle with racial and socioeconomic inequalities, deftly fleshing out the various factors at play in Desiree’s death.
VERDICT The narration by Bahni Turpin showcases her talent as she brings Garrett’s characters to life, easily giving each their own personality that adds to the mystery and intrigue of the story.
