NO ONE LEFT TO TELL
Baltimore is once again a hot spot for suspense as Rose provides a truly Byzantine tale of murder, blackmail and misdirection. This second book in Rose’s series turns the focus on State’s Attorney Grayson Smith and budding P.I. Paige Holden. The compact timeline of this tale makes the pace fast and furious, but Rose’s rich cast of characters and intricate plot layers give the story real punch. Hang on tight and remember to breathe!
Paige Holden has moved to Baltimore to try and rebuild her life and get a P.I. license, but her life takes another dramatic turn when pro bono client Elena Munoz is assassinated in front of her — after giving Paige a flash drive. Elena maintains that her husband Ramon, who was convicted of murdering Crystal Jones on the McCloud estate, is innocent. Grayson Smith successfully prosecuted the case against Ramon, but after recent events he starts to have questions. As Paige and Grayson begin investigating, they find a troubling mix of blackmail, secrets and politics — leading to a decade-long string of murders. (SIGNET, Jun., 544 pp., $7.99)
