Asked for help by Tamara Steele with a cold case, Dezeray immerses herself in the death of a 13-year-old girl. The case brings buried memories to the forefront, memories of her sister’s murder. On top of that, there is trouble brewing in her love life as her current and former lovers clash. Just to make things more complicated, Dez begins receiving messages from a dead man. Can Dez solve the cold case? Can she solve her love life? And what about her sister’s murder? And can she do any of this without any more tragedy?
Hush: A Dezeray Jackson Mystery Novel Vol 1 by Kori D Miller is a fascinating read. Right from the first page, it is an attention grabber and a real page turner. The main character, Dezeray, has been developed in a way that allows a reader to identify with her and stick with her through the entire story. The plot is masterful, packed full of action, twists and turns that you just don’t see coming, and highly captivating. Nothing is what it appears to be in this story. Just when you think you’ve worked it all out, bang ... something else happens and sends the story spiralling off in a different direction. The whole book is a masterpiece of originality, suspense and reality all mixed together. Ms Miller has complete command of the English language and it shows in her descriptive writing. The rest of the characters are just as well developed as the main one and that means the scene is well and truly set for book 2 in the series, which I can’t wait to read.
