Back On Murder: A Book Review

About The Book:

A missing girl.
A corrupt investigation.
They thought they could get away with it, but they forgot one thing:
Roland March is BACK ON MURDER

Houston homicide detective Roland March was once one of the best. Now he's disillusioned, cynical, and on his way out. His superiors farm him out on a variety of punishment details•until an unexpected break gives March one last chance to save his career. And his humanity.

All he has to do? Find the missing teenage daughter of a Houston evangelist that every cop in town is already looking for. But March has an inside track, a multiple murder nobody else thinks is connected. Battling a new partner, an old nemesis, and the demons of his past, getting to the truth could cost March everything. Even his life.

My Review:

If you are looking for a mystery with an amazing plot and even better subplots, well-developed characters from an author with an eye for vivid detail, you have to read Back On Murder. Though a Christian mystery novel, this book is full of violence and murder,and enough twists and turns to keep you hooked until the very end! Themes such as evil, love, and forgiveness are interwoven throughout this impeccable novel. If you are looking for an unpredictable novel for your summer reading list, this is definitely one to add to it!

I highly recommend it and give it a huge thumbs up!
