by Niki Danforth
Genres: Action, Fiction, Mystery, Thriller/Suspense
She’s living proof that 55 is the new 35, but this case could send the rookie P.I. into permanent retirement.
Private detective Ronnie Lake has a few wins under her belt, but she’s still proving she’s got what it takes, including to her biggest critic…herself. Eager to solve more crimes, the recently-licensed sleuth accepts a job to track down a young runaway. Her search quickly points to a far more sinister crime.
Sniffing out clues with her loyal German Shepherd, the determined investigator uncovers a brutal crime and meddling authorities. The abduction may be part of a dark conspiracy that’s out of her league, and following a trail that leads to shadowy powerbrokers could put her directly in their crosshairs.
Can she solve the case before one missing person turns into two dead bodies?

This is another addition to the Ronnie Lake mysteries. Ronnie is a wonderful P.I. protagonist accompanied by her dog, Warrior. In this case, she’s hired to find a missing college student and she finds out there’s much more drama involved within the case than meets the eye.
The pace of this story is well done and Ronnie investigates in a way that readers can solve it beside her. With the help of reluctant Detective Rossi, the two of them make a powerful duo and I’d love to see more of them in action together.
I enjoyed this mystery a lot though I felt as though the ending was a bit rushed. While everything is wrapped up nicely, I felt there could have been more after so much build-up. Still, this is a page-turner and definitely a book you’d want to pick up if you’re a mystery fan.
Rating: 4/5 Coffee Cups
