I chose to read and review this book for Rosie Amber’s Book Review Team.
This crime thriller centers around character Rhe Brewster, who is pregnant, a consultant for the Pequod (Maine, Ohio) police department and a part time ER nurse. Rhe is compulsive reading as her private life goes through turmoil as the local police and FBI try to get to the bottom of missing local children, after the discovery of a child’s finger in a lobster trap. Her psychologist husband seems oblivious to her needs and disinterested in their unplanned pregnancy. Rhe’s role as investigative consultant has garnered her enemies, none bigger than the hospital administrator who is after her job.
I absolutely loved this whodunit, and really felt an affinity for Rhe, who cannot catch a break in this crime read. A lot of the time the protagonists’ private life is distracting in a read like this, but I was just as interested in what was happening with Rhe as the case.
I look forward to reading more from Rhe soon. This book is available to read for free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
