Not up to Henderson's usually story telling. It was good, although I was disappointed in the ending. Maybe there'll be a sequel and I can satisfy my curiosity.

Rae Gabriella left the FBI after years of dedicated service when a case went ugly. She accepts a position as a private detective at Chapel Detective Agency II, headed by her former Fed partner Bruce Chapel in Justice, Illinois though she has doubts about working with her former lover, but her hometown is nearby so she can visit family and she has to start somewhere.
Justice County Sheriff Nathan Justice has his hands full with a strike that could turn violent and his grandfather. However, he soon has more to deal with when Peggy Worth is found dead in her hotel room, five rooms away from where Rae is staying; a woman she met earlier in the day. Peggy's parents hire Rae to investigate what seemed likely a natural death in her sleep of a twenty-eight years old healthy female. Soon Bruce, Rae and Nathan know that a serial killer murders women in their hotel room without a whisper or a hint of a struggle, but never takes their money or jewelry so no motive has surfaced. Whereas she seeks justice, he fears she could be next.

Enjoyed this story.

Not what I expected...Dee definitley has a gift for writing suspence, but this book is NOT one of her best. I would suggest the O'Malley series (my favorites), way over this book.

This was one of the first Dee Henderson books we read. Make the discovery that we really like this TYPE of book. A little suspense was what we didnt know we would like.

Dee Henderson does it again. Very suspenseful and a page turner. This should be a series. A woman, Gabriella, who worked as an agent in DC, moves to a small town in Illinois, to work with an old friend and ex-agent, Bruce, who runs a private investigation business. The night she hits town a murder takes place in the same hotel she is staying. All signs point to natural causes but both her and the town sheriff believe there is more then what the autopsy reports. Two other women die and that leaves her as a target. There are some suspicious happenings in town and they are on the trail.

I believe this is part of a series. The main character is Rae Gabriella picking up the pieces of her life after a traumatic event. This is well written and has made me eager to read the preceeding books.

Fun read that keeps your attention. There are also some wonderfully insightful conversations between the main characters about the nature of God and our relationship with Him. Definitely not preachy or heavy, just mixed in nicely.

I liked the murder-mystery aspect of this novel, with the subtle romantic themes woven through. Though it is Christian Fiction, it did not beat you over the head with long rambling prostelyzing. I liked the book well enough to make it a recent book selection for my Christian Fiction book club, however, we all agreed there were some gaps in the book (references made earlier, then never mentioned or followed up with later on). We were all left at the end wondering, "What next?" This must be part of a series.

Book Description
The sheriff of Justice, Illinois, is hunting a killer. Women visiting town are being murdered, tourists in nice hotels, money still in their billfolds, jewelry still on the dresser. Quiet kills - they go to sleep and never awaken. The sheriff is not pleased to find the new detective in town, Rae Gabriella, working the case on behalf of one of the families. She's staying in the same hotel as one of the victims - and her classy looks and upscale car suggest she could be the next victim. This title has been transferred to Tyndale Publishing.
