Allie is back! When a kidnapping, house fire, and murder occur around the corner from Allie Lindell's house, it's too much for her to resist. Despite promises to stay away from murder and mayhem, a missing Irish setter named Chester puts Allie on the hunt. Almost a year to the day, Mickey Callahan's business partner was found dead from a single gunshot wound to the head and nothing but questions surrounding his murder. Now, Mickey Callahan is convinced that the same people are out to get him. After a sloppy kidnapping attempt, no one takes him seriously until the body count begins to add up. The Allie Lindell saga returns with the third book in the series and more drama than ever as Allie continues the struggle to hold on to herself without giving up on her partner and love, maintain a relationship with her police officer sister and best friend, and keep up with her caper-loving neighbor who insists on going along on every stakeout.
Once again I’m wondering why I signed up to review a mystery. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the mystery genre but I don’t do spoilers when I review and I find that it makes it very difficult to write said review “properly”. I’ll try so here it goes.
I haven’t read the first two in the series, but I wasn’t lost. The mystery was a story in itself and stood alone, perhaps some of the personal tale would have flowed a little better had I read Roadkill(#1) and Sweetbreath(#2) first, but not so much that it affected how I was able to get involved into Anniversary Killer.
I found myself guessing and contemplating all the way through over the who done it. For the personal part and the characters, I found myself not only caring deeply about them, but they are so honestly written that I realized they could very easily be people I know.
I’m definitely going to be adding the first two entries to my to-be-read list.
