Detective Joe Erickson of the Chicago Police Department returns from a leave of absence to integrate back into work life. On the first day of his return, a high-profile murder falls on his desk. What was the motive to kill the young graduate student who was universally liked by everyone? These questions take on their own meanings in Lynn-Steven Johanson’s Corrupted Souls. As Joe and his partner Sam follow lead after lead, they find connections far into the past. Everyone has a back story. Getting almost killed twice makes Joe confident that there’s more to the crime than meets the eye.
Lynn-Steven Johanson weaves a story of many threads in Corrupted Souls. This murder mystery is a page-turner in a surprisingly unhurried manner. For me, the most interesting aspect was how the investigation was a part of the detectives’ lives. It was revealing to know that investigations are not all about spectacular moments but are a series of routine follow-ups and leg work. The story was not only about solving the murder but was also about the lives of all the people connected to it. Pick it up for a relaxing weekend read.
