Book Description

 May 8, 2014
Gwynn Reznick’s life is shattered when her best friend and co-worker 
at Wilton Oil & Gas Company dies in a car crash. She doubts it 
was an accident. Her suspicion is confirmed when a private investigator, 
Ruben Dordi, shows up at her door. His team has discovered 
a trail of unusual deaths and disappearances among Wilton employees. 
To make matters worse, Gwynn is under constant surveillance 
by those responsible for her friend’s death. But that doesn’t 
deter her from getting involved in the investigation. Danger lurks 
in every corner of the Wilton Tower. One false move could turn 
a risky situation into a death trap. As the investigation team digs 
deeper, they begin to unravel a sinister plot that threatens a catastrophic 
pipeline disaster. Will they solve the crime before it is too 
late?

My opinion of this read.

I read a book by this author earlier this year.  It was good, this one is great.  Gwynn is a likable character and it does not take long for the reader to get invested in her life.  Her love, her safety.  
The story is not a short read, nor particularly fast...at 248 pages it is a full length novel.  So it was not a book I managed to read in one sitting.  That said the plot moves smoothly. The action only now and then lets up to show us a bit more about Gwynn's new love interest before the roller coaster is off again.

The story is complicated but not overly so.  It moves fast and the twists and turns is manageable because the author put so much info into her character formation so that by the time that the book reaches it peak and most of the main role players plus a few tag on guys show up the reader is well enough established in the characters and the story line to follow the action with ease.  

Editing is very well done, the cover is amazing and if you love a good conspiracy theory book. Or a psychological thriller or even a who-dunnit, then this is the book you need to read.
