Murder strikes close to home for a new K-9 unit in Brooklyn
When a double homicide is strikingly familiar to a twenty-year-old cold case, Detective Nate Slater is rattled by the parallels. With a child as the only witness, he and his K-9 partner must protect little Lucy and her aunt, Willow Emery. Nate’s rough past means he always keeps an emotional distance…but in this case getting closer is the only way they’ll all survive. (Goodreads)
The characters are well developed and well rounded. When Willow finds her brother and sister-in-law dead in their house and her niece playing outside, her world is turned upside down. Her biggest concern is keeping her niece, Lucy safe. She will have help with that from Nate, the detective who took the case, and his canine partner, Murphy. They are members of a newly opened K-9 Unit opened in Brooklyn, The case is very similar to a twenty year old case, and Nate is very aware of the similarities. He will do anything to solve the case and keep Willow and Lucy safe.
The writing style flows smoothly and the book is a quick easy read. The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the book from the very beginning. There was a faith-based feel to this book and I liked the way that Willow did not lose her faith, even with everything going on. The plot flowed well and had me turning the pages as fast as I could.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted Christian mystery and suspense book. I am looking forward to reading about the other members of the K-9 Unit.
