Thin Air By Lisa Gray
The Overview Of The Book :
Private investigator Jessica Shaw is used to getting anonymous tips. But after receiving a photo of a three-year-old kidnapped from Los Angeles twenty-five years ago, Jessica is stunned to recognize the little girl as herself.
Eager for answers, Jessica heads to LA’s dark underbelly. When she learns that her biological mother was killed the night she was abducted, Jessica’s determined to solve a case the police have forgotten. Meanwhile, veteran LAPD detective Jason Pryce is in the midst of a gruesome investigation into a murdered college student moonlighting as a prostitute. A chance encounter leads to them crossing paths, but Jessica soon realizes that Pryce is hiding something about her father’s checkered history and her mother’s death.
To solve her mother’s murder and her own disappearance, Jessica must dig into the past and find the secrets buried there. But the air gets thinner as she crawls closer to the truth, and it’s getting harder and harder to breathe.
VJ** She investigates missing persons—now she is one.
I really enjoyed this fast paced un-putdownable mystery/thriller with an enticing premise that delivered on the nose, and then some!
The main character, Jessica Shaw, is fun and feisty- the kind of girl you want to have on your side (and definitely go for a drink with!) I can't wait for the next in the series.
Adah Udechukwu*** Thin Air is an excellent thriller. It kept me guessing all through.
Lewis Weinstein**overall an excellent read ... initially the multiple plots are confusing, as they are intended to be, but Gray has a firm grasp and the pieces fall into place ... one criticism: the characters involved in the ending could have been more developed earlier in the story; instead they come as a surprise, which is good, but also as 'who are they?' which is bad ... This was Gray's first novel; I am inclined to read the next in this series
