Inconclusive Evidence is the third book in Reily Garrett’s McAllister Justice series, and it’s another brilliant addition to the series. Those who have read Digital Velocity and Bound By Shadows will adore this instalment in the series, yet new readers can easily dive in as each book is a standalone novel. I would recommend reading in order, though – it’s such a great series, and so fun to watch as things develop, plus you really come to love the characters throughout.

Inconclusive evidence was an engaging and suspenseful read that had me on the edge of my seat all the way through the book. It had me hooked from the very first page with its thrilling storyline.

Megan was a strong heroine, who was really enjoyable to read about. I loved the relationship she had with her beloved dog and the way that she was determined to find out what happened to her friend.

Lucas I really felt for with the way that he felt guilty over the death of his partner and he survived de

Megan Chauner is finally ready to start her veterinary practice when she gets a package from her best friend.

That package is the reason why she is now hiding in a remote cabin, far from civilization.

Except she is not alone!. Turns out the owner of the cabin she rented did not actually put it up for rent.

This book....well, it grabs your attention from the first page and just doesn't let up. I'm even a little sad that it is over. Reily Garrett has written a thrilling read and one of my favorite things is she has given one of the most lead roles to a dog. The characters are believable, and it is a well paced read. Definately one I would read again. ...more

When I started reading Inconclusive Evidence, I thought that it was going to be one of those humdrum romantic suspense/ thrillers that focuses more on the romance than the thriller/suspense. But my mind changed after the first chapter. It changed, even more, the deeper into the book.

What I liked about Inconclusive Evidence was that the author was able to keep the thriller and the romance apart. There were no mushy love sentiments in the middle of a crucial scene with the bad guys. There also was

Each book by this author brings yet another dimension to the table and I find myself becoming an even bigger fan.
I find the mystery element of the books is liberally interspersed with romance, so neither seems to take precedence, they both share the limelight and that suits me right down to the ground.
Megan is laying low, doing what she can to protect herself just long enough to find out what exactly she has gotten caught up in.

Inconclusive Evidence is the third book in the McAllister Justice series. It can be read a standalone novel. If you didn’t read the previous books then you will be meeting the characters from those books. If you did read the books then you will get to see them again. Yay.

One day Megan was just a veterinarian and the next she was on the run because of package. A package full of secrets. A package full of studies. A package that could either get her killed or save millions. She needed t

Nothing is simple about this story.

When Megan learns of her death, she goes to mourn with her white shepherd in the mountains. Before she died, Jackie had sent her research on quantum tunneling microscopic findings, nanotechnology and self-dissolving microchips. Megan quickly realizes that new progress in this technological area is why her friend was killed and could be

I received an Advanced Release Copy in exchange for an honest review.

I first came across Reily Garrett's writing when I found Tender Echoes, the prequel to Digital Velocity. Garrett's writing just drew me in, so when the opportunity to review Inconclusive Evidence coincided with an opening in my schedule, I couldn't resist. An added bonus is the fact that each book in the McAllister series is a stand alone is great for a new readers just finding the series, or a reader reading out of order.

Best of the series thus far

Bicoastal author Reily Garrett has been employed as an ICU nurse, a private investigator, and in the military police – all of which supplies her with the intricate and detailed knowledge from which she forges her books. She addresses issues such as man's cruelty and ingenuity for torment and torture, having witnessed the after-effects of a teenager mugged at knife point for a pair of tennis shoes, or an elderly woman stabbed repeatedly with a screwdriver for no apparen

The author requested an honest review and this is what I'm offering. This is the third in the McAllister Justice series, in which we begin with a death of an investigative reporter that remains unexplained until after the friend of the person who dies so mysteriously, Megan Chauner, uses her veterinary knowledge and an inquiring mind after she receives a package that implies something sinister is going on.

Before doing so, however, she has the first of several frights when Lucas McAllister, one

HOLY EXCITING RIDE BATMAN! I finished Inconclusive Evidence earlier today, and had to go to the doctor right after, and low & behold, my heart rate was still up because this story was action packed! I've read all the McAllister Brother's stories since the beginning, and with each new one, the brilliant Reily Garrett has upped the ante, and this one BLEW MY MIND! Blew it so much, I can honestly say that I couldn't write any sort of description even if I wanted to. Let's just say that the twists & ...more

Reily Garrett continues here McAllister Justice series with a most interesting science/medicine twist. The author writes a very readable mystery, but this third volume has incorporated some cautiously possible nefarious application of cutting-edge nanotechnology, on both animal experimental subjects and unknowing human beings. As other reviewers have noted, the plot moves quickly, the action is fast-paced - a real page turner. The book starts with some very unique action that draws the reader in ...more

I really enjoyed reading Inconclusive Evidence. This is my first book by this author. It won't be my last. I didn't realize when I started reading that it was the third in a series. Thank Goodness it can be a standalone! I loved the characters. The story was well written and had me on the edge of my seat. I loved the suspense/mystery of the story. I can't wait to go back and read the other books! Reily Garrett definitely has a new fan!

I should have known better when I saw this blurb on the front cover of Inconclusive Evidence by Reily Garret: “A Romantic Thriller.” Somehow, the written invitational summary of the book convinced me this novel would focus on a legal thriller theme and there would be non-subtle hints of a romantic situation along the way. In fact, there is little of a legal thriller in this novel. Instead there many unrealistic coincidental situations disguised behind supposedly possible scientific description s ...more

~First, I’ll state that I received this book as a gift from the author to read and review.
~This one was a bit different from the rest of the series that I have read so far…and it was quite enjoyable and worth reading. It does have that “edge-of-the-seat” quality to it.

There might have been an interesting plot but I gave up after chapter 4.
Unoriginal commentary passing for witty "sexually charged"dialogue between complete strangers- one of whom could be the target of some "very bad people". Seriously? Badly written to the point of distraction.
