Revenge Served Cold by Jackie Fullerton is the second book in the “Anne Marshall” mystery series. Publisher: Thomas House Publishing, May 2010
What would you do if your worst nightmare came true?
Kathy Spence awakens in the middle of the night and finds herself in a living nightmare. Her husband has been run down and she is the primary suspect. With an eyewitness to the crime and proof that her car was the murder weapon, it appears to be an open and shut case.
Terrified for her future, Kathy turns to amateur sleuth, Anne Marshall, for help. Believing in Kathy’s innocence, Anne launches her own investigation, uncovering proof of a conspiracy that reaches from Kathy’s past and threatens her own life.
In a race against time, Anne must count on her close friends and even the ghost of her father to help her bring a killer to justice before it’ s too late.
This was an enjoyable story. Anne Marshall is a court reporter and law student who is very smart, inquisitive and stubborn in her beliefs of justice. When a friend asks her for help, Anne goes full-steam ahead despite warning from everyone not to get involved, but with the aid of her ghostly father, Anne obtain clues even the police and law officials didn’t uncover. What I like about this book is the author uses the technique similar to the TV show, Columbo, whereas we are introduced to the killer at the beginning or are we? The author keeps you guessing in this story that is filled with excitement and exhilaration as we watch how Anne and friends gets closer to their prey. My rating: 4 stars
