About the book:

Don’t Look
At first, they struggle to escape. Then a torrent of blows rains down upon their bodies until their eyes cloud over in final agony. The killer shows no remorse–just a twisted need to witness each victim’s last terrified moments.

Don’t Speak

Public defender Rachel Wainwright is struggling to reopen a decades-old case, convinced that the wrong man is in prison. Homicide detective Deke Morgan doesn’t want to agree. But if Rachel’s hunch is correct, whoever fatally bludgeoned young, beautiful Annie Dawson thirty years ago could be the source of a new string of brutal slayings.

Just Prepare To Die

Rachel’s investigation is about to reveal answers–but at a price she never thought to pay. Now she’s become the target of a rage honed by years of jealousy and madness. And a murderer is ready to show her just how vicious the truth can be. . .

My Comments: Great book – but not as squeaky clean as books I usually review, so just a warning on that.  The story was engaging and thought provoking. There were a few surprising twists and turns, which kept me riveted and coming back for more. Rachel Wainwright, the main character  is driven to help people even past her comfort level. She teams up with an interesting (and integral to the story) family of cops. – actually getting more involved than she wants with them.

The story takes place really over 30 years, so there are many layers. There are a couple of sexual scenes – more explicit than I prefer, so I just skim through those.  Mary Burton is one of my favorite authors in the suspense book genre. If you are in the mood for a good, suspenseful read – this might be it!
