Fatal Limit is a medical/mystery thriller about the death of Shelia and the many twists and turns of why and how it happened. Dora is an investigator and when she witnesses her best friend Maddie’s Aunt Shelia staggering down the street and being run over, she knows something is not right. Shelia is brought to a nearby hospital and soon is declared dead, and that is when the mystery begins. Maddie and Dora both believe that there was foul play involved because the facts just don’t add up. Dora is determined to do whatever it takes to get the answers and solve the case. Georgina, Jared, April, and Colleen are all suspects - all are related and each one has a good reason to want Shelia dead. The more that Dora learns about the secret romances, lies that have been told and other possible murders, the more complicated it becomes to find the true killer.

I believe that you must read Fatal Limit yourself to absorb all that this story offers readers. Author Inge-Lise Goss has created characters that are believable and a plot that kept me reading from the very first word until the last. Dora was very realistic and her boyfriend and police detective Tucker added romance and behind the scenes help in her investigation as they shared the details of the case. I believe that you will find Fatal Limit to be a winner. It is a fast, captivating and thrilling read and a mystery that young and old will really enjoy.
