Sarah Broadhurst's view...

November 2009 Book of the Month.

A very human crime novel which concentrates on the detective and her family as much as on the crime she’s solving. It involves computer hacking and theft and sadly I guessed the culprit some five or six chapters before all was unravelled. See if you do too.

Comparison: Lisa Gardner, P J Tracy, Tess Gerritsen.

If you like Erica Spindler you might also like to read books by Karen Rose, Simon Kernick and Hilary Norman.

Synopsis

Breakneck by Erica Spindler

Mary Catherine 'MC' Riggio and Kitt Lundgren, detective partners at the Rockford, Violent Crimes Bureau, have been through a lot together. Lately, though, things have begun to look up: MC is about to get married, while Kitt is slowly coming to terms with the loss of her daughter. Suddenly, the fragile peace of their world is shattered when MC's cousin Tommy is found brutally murdered at his home. Suddenly, nothing will be the same again. A killer is on the loose, someone who quickly and systematically works his way down a seemingly unconnected list of victims. With the body count rising, MC realises that she has to keep her head in the game and use her grief to fuel the hunt, but as the madman draws ever closer, Kitt and MC begin to struggle to walk that fine line between protecting the law ? and taking it into their own hands ...

About the Author

Erica Spindler

Erica Spindler has published more than twenty novels. Her titles have been published all over the world and Red was turned into both a wildly popular graphic novel and daytime drama in Japan. Critics have dubbed her stories as “thrill-packed, page turners, white knuckle rides, and edge-of-your-seat whodunits” and The Times Picayune praised 2003’s In Silence, calling it “Creepy and compelling; a real page turner.”

In 2002, her novel Bone Cold won the prestigious Daphne du Maurier Award for excellence. An RWA honor roll member, she received a Kiss of Death award for her novel and is a three-time RITA award finalist. In 1999 Publishers Weekly awarded the audio version of her Forbidden Fruit novel Shocking Pink a Listen-Up award, naming it one of the best audio mystery books of 1998. Praised by booksellers as “The best suspense novel I’ve ever read” and “A perfect 10 out of 10,” Erica's 2004 release See Jane Die is the story of a woman who must face her darkest fears when her husband becomes the prime suspect in the brutal murders of two women.

Erica and her husband — a man she describes as funny, handsome and way too sassy — met in art school and have been together ever since. They have two sons, born nine and a half years apart. Erica makes her home in the New Orleans area, although she originally hailed from Illinois.
