Book Review - "Lethal Beauty"

Book Description from the publisher:

Mia Quinn discovers that a series of seemingly unrelated murders are linked. How far up are the strings being pulled-and what happens when one of her own is at risk?

The murder Mia is prosecuting seems like an open and shut case-until the accused claims he was the real victim and that the dead girl attacked him first. The tabloids dub her a "lethal beauty." Still, a conviction seems imminent. Then a key witness goes missing. Just when it looks like the killer could walk free, the dead woman's mother takes matters into her own hands.

Meanwhile, Charlie Carlson, a Seattle homicide detective, is investigating the murder of a man whose body washed up on the beach of Puget Sound, but he's got little to go on. He has no dental work, fingerprints aren't on file, and he doesn't match any missing person reports. Then a church pianist is senselessly gunned down before horrified parishioners.

All three cases seem unrelated-but are they? Together, Mia and Charlie race to find the answer before another crime hits too close to home.

My Review:
I have been a huge fan of Lis Wiehl's books from her very first one I read and each one just continues to be an excellent suspenseful read!  "Lethal Beauty" continues the Mia Quinn Mystery saga and I highly recommend that you read the first 2 books in these series before starting this one as it continues on from the previous novel.  Mia is dealing with issues in her own life with the death of her husband and adjusting to life without him, and now she has the interest of two men in her life and her workload continues to build and get more intense.  Mia and Charlie find themselves fighting for justice and trying to find answers before someone else is killed.  This is an exciting read from the very beginning to the very end; I was kept guessing the entire way through.  This is very suspenseful and so real that I was drawn right into the story and held captive until the very end.  I highly recommend this book and series for those whom enjoy suspense!
