Book Review: Secrets - A thrilling who-done-it by S. L. Pierce.
This murder mystery is a real page-turner with plenty of action, plot twists and suspects.
The pacing needs a few more slow spots with more detailed descriptions of people and places, but frankly, I couldn't put it down. I would have enjoyed the scenery of the San Francisco Bay Area, but the narrator skips lightly over it.
The climax feels particularly rushed, but it still satisfies. All the clues are there, out in the open, but it kept me guessing right up until the murderer was revealed.
The story begins with a hit man attempting to murder Gwen Michaels, an army veteran who works for a security company. The job turns out to be more difficult than the hired gun had expected.
When Gwen goes into hiding, she must reveal her secret past to her husband Frank and hope that the shock does not cause him to leave her.
Gwen's search for the reasons why she became a target will keep you riveted to the page, no matter the hour and no matter what else you had planned to do. The only distraction for me was my need for caffeine, since Gwen shares my love for coffee, which sent me to the kitchen several times to make a cup for myself.
Four out of five stars.
