Murder and romance don’t really go together but in this case, it works!
By DD Gott on January 13, 2018

What did I like? I totally fell in love with Carly, she is the sort of person that I wanted to be when I grew up. A Cop and well maybe not the single mom detail because I did get that part in my life also, but I sure wanted to be a COP! I loved the grit that Carly has an

Carly and her partner, Bill, work in the homicide department of CPD. A late night call takes her to a deserted commuter carpark, with a young lawyer dead on the ground with a large cauterised hole in the middle of his chest, all his organs having been vaporised! Not the sort of wound they are used to seeing. The victim also has an extensive tattoo on his face – something that wasn’t there before his murder.

The autopsy comes up with some unexpected details. The wound has been caused by something

Shadow Informant by Edita A Petrick Review 1-11-18
Murder and romance don’t really go together but in this case, it works!

A serial killer who leaves a road-map on his victims should be easy to track down…
When Carly is roused in the middle of the night to come to work she knows she’ll be heading for a murder scene. After all, she’s a homicide detective, it’s her job, and she’s prepared for everything. Until she arrives in a suburban commuter parking lot where a young lawyer is lying on the ground

The ARC of Shadow Informant was received in exchange for an honest review. I am not sure I would have found this book any other way. It was an interesting take on a police procedural type of story that created quite a few questions during the whole book. The romance in the story was subtle and made it more believable. The main characters did not have a drawn-out romance that took away from the mystery of the plot.

The story begins when Caroline (Carly) is awakened to go a murder scene in suburban

This is an interesting idea for a romantic suspense. I enjoyed the twists and turns. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC.

Shadow Informant is a murder mystery that has some unconventional murder methods. The victims all have a 4 diameter hole vaporized from their chest, which appears to be “inhuman.”

Carly is a homicide detective assigned to the case. She’s pretty amazing, and I like her style. There’s a lot of “paranormal” feel to this, but you can’t be certain, since they are inquiring with the military, on what they know about weapons that can vaporize five pounds of flesh out of someones chest.
