About The Redgrave Murders
Loss is inevitable, as Evie Hampton knows all too well. But despite losing her mother to can er and her older brother to a war, she knows she’s one of the lucky ones. After all, she still has her father, a distinguished professor of medieval history. And she has Gary Redhawk, the man she loves despite the emotional scars he carries from the Second World War—and despite her father’s opposition to their relationship.
When Evie’s car suddenly careens off the road, she chalks it up to poor maintenance or sheer bad luck making another appearance in her life. Little does she know a host of hardships is just beginning—the car was her father’s, and the brake lines were deliberately cut. Someone wants them dead—but why? All fingers point to Gary, a man with a troubled past and no solid alibi, but Evie is unwilling to believe he’s involved. Determined to uncover the truth, she begins to piece together a startling picture of deception and vice. But as she closes in on the truth, it is clear that someone is determined to silence her—and the next attempt on her life may be a deadly success.
I LOVE a good suspense book! And this is a good one. It’s a bit different from the way A.L. Sowards usually writes, but that’s a good thing!
I loved Evie in this book. Evie is a young woman living in the time period just after World War II. She’s lost her mom and older brother before the story starts. She lives with her dad. And her boyfriend is Gary.
There is a lot of things with this time period that the author did a good job including in this novel. The way Gary would have been looked at because he was a Native American was one thing I noticed. It’s not right, but he would have been looked down on, and his and Evie’s relationship especially would have been taboo.
It’s no surprise that when bad things start happening, Gary is the first suspect. And there’s no other suspects that the police are willing to consider. While Gary’s in jail, Evie shows what she’s made of and works on the investigation all on her own. I love that she does this, and doesn’t get scared off, even when it would have been easy to.
This book kept me guessing from the beginning to the very end. I would have never guessed just who the bad guy was or why! It’s my favorite thing when that happens. If you’re a fan of good suspense books, make sure to pick this one up!
I was sent a copy of The Redgrave Murders as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
