Jack Salvo is back in the third installment in his series, The Middle Sister by Jesse Miles. Jack Salvo, a private detective in LA, is hired by a very rich woman to find her middle daughter, Lillie, who has been missing for a week. Lillie’s sisters are willing to help, and Jack follows the clues. Unfortunately, early on in the novel, Lillie is found dead, most likely of a drug overdose, and Jack works to find who is to blame before reporting to Lillie’s mother. The way that Jack works the case makes sense, and it won’t surprise readers when he solves it.

Miles is an excellent writer, and the novel is well organized and easy to follow. There are enough ups and downs to keep any reader enthralled. From the start, it will keep the interest of thriller aficionados, and some of the scenarios will keep them on the edge of their seats. Most readers will like Jack Salvo, and his character is well-developed. The supporting characters are also well-developed and they seem like they could be real people. This novel will be an incentive to read the previous novels, since most will appreciate the fact that these novels are gritty, fast moving, and gripping. Like all good thriller novels, the dénouement is surprising and doesn’t come until the very end.

These novels are recommended for those who want a new, fun series. The Middle Sister is excellent, and will inspire readers to go back and read the previous novels.
