TITLE: MISSING JUSTICE
AUTHOR: ALAFAIR BURKE
Details: no. 2 Samantha Kincaid Mystery
Samantha Kincaid is back to work as assistant district attorney, and has been promoted to the Major Crimes Unit. Her very first call out is to the house of a judge who has gone missing. But what starts as a simple hand-holding / making her office look good job soon turns into a murder investigation.
But when the case appears solved, with a man arrested and awaiting trial, Samantha can't help digging deeper. An action that could cost her much more than just her job.
I'm enjoying Burke's mysteries. They are very well plotted and exciting. Kincaid is maybe a bit more independent and persistent than appears realistic, but is fiction and it does make for a good story.
