AND SHE WAS
Gaylin introduces an intriguing protagonist who is clever, plucky and suffering from a condition that both enhances her career and constrains her life. Brenna is thrown into a suspenseful mystery that will keep readers guessing. Here’s hoping for a sequel with good cop Nick as a romantic interest and more on her missing sister.
PI Brenna Spector has a rare neurological disorder triggered by the trauma of her sister’s disappearance some 20 years ago. She can recall every detail of her life since that day. When hired to find a missing wife, Brenna becomes entangled in a web of deception that stretches back to the disappearance of a child a decade ago — and possibly to the fate of her own sister. When her investigation uncovers corruption in the police force and a ruthless killer who is eliminating anyone with information, she forms an uneasy alliance with cop Nick Morasco to help solve the mystery.
