Thin Ice was a Triple Spin

Thin Ice
Irene Hannon

Book Summary: After losing her parents in a car accident and her sister to a house fire, Christy Reed has been mired in grief. Life is finally starting to feel normal again when an envelope arrives in the mail--addressed in her sister's handwriting. And the note inside claims she is still alive. FBI Special Agent Lance McGregor, a former Delta Force operator, is assigned to reopen the case, but he's coming up with more questions than answers. If Ginny Reed is still alive--who is the woman buried in her grave? Where is Ginny? And is Christy a pawn in a twisted cat-and-mouse game--or the target of a sinister plot? As he digs deeper, one thing becomes clear: whoever is behind the bizarre ruse has a deadly agenda.

Review: This mystery was intense!!!! I prefer a ‘who done it’ more than a ‘cat and mouse’ suspense. The story had a lot of sub plots that at times distracted from the main plot it is possible to keep the story rolling. The psycho that was the murder was overwhelmingly well written. I have to say that I was uncomfortable with the detail of the storyline. The very sad circumstances the murder’s grandmother was in made the entire plot depressing and seemingly hopeless. The ending helps lift some of the depressing circumstances. I think that I really enjoyed the first 1/3rd of the story because of how intelligent Christy was and yet near the end she failed to live up to that intelligence. For me that was sad. The average woman could not fend off the average male. I thought her plan and getting the cell phone back on was back on track with who Christy is.

I would like to thank Net Galley and Revell for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
