From the Amazon Charts bestselling author of One Small Sacrifice, a gripping mystery about a sinister murder that everyone wants to stay buried—except one dogged NYPD detective.
Jo Greaver is a model of success. Young and ambitious, she’s built a thriving beauty business from nothing. But she has secrets she’ll do anything to keep buried. When her blackmailer offers to meet, Jo expects to pay him off—but gets a bullet instead. Bleeding and in shock, Jo flees with no one to turn to.
When NYPD detective Sheryn Sterling and her partner, Rafael Mendoza, find Andray Baxter murdered in his own home—shot through the heart—everything points to Jo as the killer. Her blood is at the scene, and so are disturbing photos of her taken as a young teen. But Sheryn has doubts. Was the kindhearted Andray really a criminal? Why did he repeatedly report finding spyware in his apartment? Was there something shady about Jo’s sister dying a year earlier?
Something’s not right, and it’s up to Sheryn to piece together the sinister puzzle, no matter the cost.
Poor Jo Greaver – she had a rough life and when she finally overcomes and makes something of herself, someone tries to blackmail her. She thinks she will be able to pay off the blackmailer and be done with it, but she’s not so lucky. Instead, she ends up shot and suspected of murder!
It’s been a while since I read a good psychological thriller, so Don’t Look Down was a treat! There are so many pieces to this puzzle, but the author does a wonderful job of putting them all together by the end of the story. The characters are so well crafted that it was truly a pleasure to read. This is the second book in a series, but you can definitely read it as a standalone, and I hope there will be many more to come.
Note – I know many of my readers prefer their books on the cozy side. While there is a victim of sex trafficking in this book, there are no graphic sex scenes or language.
