Review: The Guilty Dead
Gregory Norwood, wealthy businessman and close friend of Minnesota's leading candidate for Governor, is found dead on the first anniversary of his son's drug overdose. It seems clear to Detectives Gino and Magozzi that grief drove him to suicide.
Until they find the second body.
As the seemingly open-and-shut case becomes a murder enquiry, the detectives begin to delve into the dark secrets of one of the city's most powerful families. It seems the murders are not the first in the Norwoods' tragic story - and they won't be the last...
Disclaimer - I hadn't read any of the previous 8 books in this series. I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything other than character familiarity because all of the recurring characters and their connections were described pretty well. I was thankful for that and for not being confused.
The story immediately piqued my interest as the action started from the very first chapter. I admired how easily and seamlessly the pages turned, and that many of the chapters jumped from one character's story to another, building up to solving the murder-mystery.
The characters were likable and I felt engaged all the way through.
I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
