4 out of 5 stars Kindle Copy for Review

Detective Geraldine Steel finds herself in the middle of investigating the murder  of a high profile young soap opera actress.  All evidence points to her older successful live in boyfriend as the prime suspect but Geraldine does not quite think so.

At first it appears to be a car accident but when they find that she was stabbed by a glass from the accident they realized she was murder.  The other vehicle in the accident was owned by her boyfriend and no one saw anyone leaving the vehicle.

When other young female actresses are found dead who having a connection to the boyfriend keeps popping up dead leaving no clues, someone wants the boyfriend   Geraldine must find the murder before he strikes again.

Fast pace thriller that keeps you glued.
