Fourth Strike: A Novel of Suspense is the fourth book in the Detectives Daniels and Remalla series by Judy Bishop, a suspenseful story that had me on the edge of my seat as I read from page to page. Retired Judge Martin Hendrix has just been shot and detectives Gordon Daniels and Aaron Remalla get on the case to capture the killer. But then former detective Jill Jacobs comes in with a twist. She has been hunting a killer linked to other murders and her quest will unravel dreadful truths about family and revelations that will test Daniels and Remalla like nothing before. What if the killer is someone close to home?
Judy Bishop is a great storyteller and what caught my attention from the start is the author’s ability to create a strong storyline. The narrative starts with the murder of a judge and surprising elements add up as one turns the pages. Jill Jacobs’s role in the story is indispensable and I particularly enjoyed how the author uses this detective to widen the plot and introduce more complex elements. There are twists aplenty and no one will see the surprises coming. There is a sense of mystery accompanying the reader as they follow the compelling characters trying to solve multiple murders. The story is written in excellent prose and sprinkled with realistic dialogues that drive the plot forward while deepening character and conflict. Fourth Strike is suspenseful, tightly written, and cunningly plotted. This is a great read for fans of detective fiction and novels with believable and compelling characters.
