Threads of suspicion by Dee Henderson is my new favorite mystery book series. I always loved Castle on ABC and this made me miss the show even more. (See Below of the trailer of Threads of Suspicion, but don’t leave yet… Read of the rest of my review. 🙂 )
This is a great story about Lieutenant Evie Blackwell and the new Chicago based cold case detectives. Her partner is David and is the boyfriend of the famous Triple M Band singer Maggie May McDonald. The entire force is give a case or two to solve for the next several months. David is assigned the cold case of Saul Morris, a private investigator gone missing while conducting a case. Evie is assigned the case of Jenna Greenhill, a college girl that went missing after a concert.
Both mystery cold cases seem to intertwine each other in some areas, which allows Evie and David to help each other solve the crimes and why their individuals are missing or dead. As they continue to unveil their cases and dig deeper into them, they soon discover that Jenna’s disappearance is linked to a Triple M Concert and 5 other missing woman cases. Not wanting to fear Maggie, they have to see the connections linked to the concerts and the other women. Along with this discovery, they also will find that Saul Morris went missing while looking at Jenna Greenhill’s case. However, I will stop here about the cases so I do not spoil anything for you.
Here are a few questions to consider for the case: do you think Jenna and Saul are alive or not? If not, who do you think killed them? Will Maggie be in danger or the next victim?
However, the story is much more than just the case of Saul Morris and Jenna Greenhill. Evie and David both are struggling in their personal relationships. Evie is scared to say yes and make a marriage commitment to her boyfriend, Rob, and David is waiting patiently for Maggie to discover and put her faith in Jesus. David longs to marry Maggie, and will wait until she can understand his faith. Both Evie and David pray ernestly and wait patiently for the answers for their lives. Will Evie finally resolve her issues and say Yes to Rob? Will Maggie come to have faith in Jesus? You are just going to have to pick up a copy for your self.

Honest thoughts about the book:
When I first started reading the book, I was not so sure about it. I’ve read several mystery novels recently and they haven’t been too catchy. However, I opened my mind and discovered how much I was really enjoying this book. It was a great book, and I did enjoy it every much. It made me miss my favorite detective show CASTLE, though. One thing I will mention about the book that got to me was that it was a cliffhanger. I need more about Evie Blackwell and her partner David. UGH!!! There are so many unanswered questions. I need more, but for now I’ll have to wait. 🙂
Lastly, I want to mention, that I received this digital ebook for my honest opinion from the Baker Publishing. I really enjoyed the book once I got into the story.
Until next week…
