Julie Kramer Thrills with Delivering Death
~book review by Amy Lignor
This is the next tale in the incredibly captivating Riley Spartz thriller series, and the suspense is even more chilling than ever.
For those who are unaware, Riley Spartz is one of those intelligent and intriguing characters all readers want to follow. As an investigative journalist and reporter who has definitely received her ‘gold stars’, Riley has made a name for herself by dealing with the most criminal aspects of Minneapolis. Here, she is once again about to embark on a ride that will put her skills to the ultimate test, beginning when an unknown person sends her an envelope containing a set of human teeth.
Jack Clemens is a white-collar criminal who is about to be incarcerated in a federal correctional institution for playing fast and loose with other people’s money. Although Jack was once a part of the ‘country club’ lifestyle, he has to face a whole new world when placed into a prison that’s a bit like Alcatraz. Doing all he can to survive his sentence, Jack pleads with a gang leader for protection in exchange for cash. But, unfortunately, he ends up dead at the hands of another inmate.
As the plot moves forward, Riley not only finds herself immersed in an unsavory crime, but she must also deal with the fact that a hideous murderer wants to use her home, the media, to publicize his talents.
A truly great story, as always when it comes to this character, the plot lines are so well-drawn that the reader will not be able to put the book down until the truth comes to light. A great deal of action comes from the newsroom and focuses on all the work a skilled journalist must do in order to run down leads, while at times causing aggravation in order to get their stories out to the public.
Riley Spartz is one character in suspense fiction that should be around for a good long time. Great job!
Until Next Time, Everybody,
