Detectives Annie Avants and Tom Weston tackle one of the most perplexing murder mysteries since they began working together.
The crime victim is a local, well-respected attorney who has gone missing.
There’s not much criminal evidence to go on. His car was found an hours drive out of Bakersfield with blood on the passenger seat.
No body has been found.
His staff is in a quandary. He had a new trial scheduled to begin the next morning. Everything was set to go.
And then, he just disappeared.
A mysterious package left in the restroom of the Kern County Courthouse leads our detectives to believe that the attorney is dead.
And now. . . another person has gone missing!
Will our detectives find the answers before a media frenzy erupts in the Kern County/Bakersfield area? Will the FBI be called in to help? Will they come to understand the kinds of criminal minds that lead someone to be a serial killer and narrow the list of suspects?
This fast-paced crime fiction detective thriller will keep you reading well into the night to find out ‘who dun it?”
Annie Avants is slowly becoming my favorite now. I started with her 4th book, then I went back and started with #1. Damage control is the #3 in the series of Det. Annie Avants mysteries. Every book sees her getting evolved from a new Detective, slowly gaining experience and developing character. The supporting characters in the series like her boyfriend, Jesse, her partner, Tom, and other people in her team.
Damage Control is about a missing and presumed dead attorney, and murders that follow. The thing with this book is that the clues are always right in front. Throughout the book, you could always feel “Maybe this character is the killer. But maybe, this is too easy and someone else just might be the killer” and it turns out you are right. That gives an amazing feeling because after so many years of reading murder mysteries, you have finally come and realized for a change, who the murderer is. Or maybe Renee is just letting you go easy on this one and will give a killer on the next one…
I thoroughly enjoyed the journey with Annie Avants yet again. It is always fun going on an adventure with her. She feels like the next Nancy Drew going on. I am going on to the next book pretty soon
