Kill and Run Review

Kill and Run Review
Years ago a driver in a black truck plowed down Officer Nicholas Gates while he was on a routine speeding stop. Thirteen years later his widow, Cameron Gates, finds out the FBI has arrested her husband’s killer when they changed the hit and run charge to murder. It now looks like he was killed by a hitman.

In the meantime, Lieutenant Murphy Thornton of the United States Navy (NCIS) responded to a call at a townhouse in Reston, Virginia. Five women were found dead, five shots to the face and body. One victim was a Navy Petty Officer, and the reason why Murphy was called to the scene.

Murphy and his wife brought the Petty Officer’s five year old daughter into their home for protection as she had nowhere else to go. Shortly after the young girl moved in, the couple spotted a car that seemed to follow the couple whenever they went out or parked near their home.

As Murphy works the murder case, he finds a connection to his stepmother, Cameron, and the death of her first husband. She is now the wife of Murphy’s father Joshua Thornton.

Kill and Run by Lauren Carr is a Thorny Rose Mystery, a new series connecting the Lovers in Crime newlyweds Lieutenant Murphy Thornton and Jessica Faraday, daughter of Mac Faraday. The ties to the various popular series bring a new excitement to the mystery stories.

The fast-paced story, numerous twists and turns, and well-developed characters bring an allure to a some times harsh topic. A structured plot keeps the story moving forward and readers turning pages. The best part of the story is the completely surprising ending.

This book is a must read for anyone who enjoys a good mystery that also utilizes numerous family members throughout the series, keeping the stories fresh, and the ability to get to know the characters much deeper than most novels.
