Review: Life in Death by Harlow Coban

Life in Death by Harlow Coban

Format: ebook

Goodreads:  When a girl that social worker Kari Marchant places in foster care is brutally murdered, she’s compelled to learn why. Her quest for the truth pits her against friends and coworkers. As Kari works to solve the horrific plot, more people die. She’s been targeted for death and she doesn’t even know it. How far should she go to learn the truth—even if it threatens her life? 

When homicide detective Rance Nicolet meets Kari, his attraction to her is powerful—and the feeling is mutual. But things between them go terribly wrong when Kari’s old lover is found murdered with a letter from her in his pocket. The evidence against Kari is damning. Rance’s personal and professional lives collide. Does he blindly believe the woman he’s falling in love with or follow the evidence no matter where it leads?

Kritters Thoughts: A little novella that packs quite a punch.  With limited pages, the story starts quick and is full steam ahead to the unexpected ending.  At the onset, we meet Kari who is a social worker who finds out that one of the foster children she represented has disappeared.  The reader is quickly attached to Kari and you want to follow her journey to find the truth.

As the story is short and to the point, so will this review.  I liked the flow of the story and the quickened pace.  The ending was the cinch that brought the whole thing together and made it a perfect read that even made me giggle.

Rating:  definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
