Review & Giveaway ~ KNOWING by Laurel Dewey

After the life-altering ending in the third Jane Perry thriller, REVELATIONS, Jane Perry takes time off from the job to find the missing part of herself she never knew existed. But her journey is quickly hijacked when a wanted criminal, Harlan Kipple, steals her car. Kipple—accused of the heinous murder of a prostitute in a seedy motel—is on the run and desperate to stay that way. Jane’s personal plans take a back seat as she tracks down her stolen ride and discovers through an unusual source that Kipple may be innocent and is being framed by a nefarious group. When she trails Kipple and confronts him, every belief she ever had about this world and the next is put to the test.

Kipple, who by his own admission is not the “brightest bulb in the box,” received a heart transplant seventeen months ago. His life changed from the moment he woke up in the recovery room. In fact, he’s not so sure where he ends and his heart takes over. As strange as that sounds to her, Jane cannot deny what she witnesses after spending just two days with Kipple. It becomes clear that nothing is what it appears as Jane is drawn into a deep rabbit hole with dark webs and darker crevices that force her to operate on the other side of the law. With the police hot on Kipple’s tail and a devious faction intent on finding him first, Jane is caught in the middle and realizes that solving this crime could have fatal consequences.

My thoughts...

My first Laurel Dewey novel and it's awesome! She's a great storyteller. A first rate plot that involves murder, a transplanted heart with a life all its own, and plenty of evil. Enough action that will keep you glued to your seat!

I really liked Jane Perry's character, she's a strong woman with real problems. She has taken time off from her job as a homicide detective for personal reasons, trouble catches up with her quickly and things happen that make this a 5 star suspense filled novel.

I received a copy of this book free through Partners In Crime Tours in exchange for an honest review.
