Wow! This book is full of suspense which will keep the reader turning pages until the end. And, to make things even better, the author does not give away the end even by the middle of the book! "Before She Dies" is the latest Mary Burton thriller and it is well worth the read. Defense Attorney Charlotte Wellington carries a deep, dark secret which has been contained so long that she carries a reputation of impeccability. But, when the carnival comes to town, her secret threatens to unravel in such a manner that her life will never be the same. Women are being murdered in a brutal and ritualistic manner and, like it or not, Charlotte Wellington is right in the center of the mystery. Her past threatens to become exposed as she is no longer able to protect her secret and she must make a decision of whether or not to release herself fully to her friend and lover Daniel Rokov. Until the present, Charlotte and Daniel have had a "friends with benefits" relationship but this is about to change as Charlotte becomes deeper and deeper involved in the chain of events which lead her to the brink of death.
Burton has a succinct and powerful manner of weaving her plots and disclosing the secrets of her characters. She writes hard-nosed dialogue in which nonessential details are eliminated in favor of the reader hopping into the story to become invested in the detective work. This is an artistically written story which will captivate the reader from start to finish.
