Sink into a novel of mystery and suspense with a bit of romance thrown in for good measure as Inge-Lise Goss takes you through the murky depths of the oil and gas industry and reveals The Cost of Crude. Gwynn is devastated when Julie, her best friend and colleague at the Wilton Oil & Gas Company, dies in a car accident. It soon becomes apparent that it was no accident and that is confirmed when a private investigator, Ruben Dordi, turns up at her apartment. His team is investigating a string of suspicious deaths, all of employees who worked for Wilton. Hired by Julie’s grandmother to determine who killed her, part of his job is to keep Gwynn safe. She suddenly finds herself being watched by the people who killed her friend and her life is in danger. But that doesn’t stop her trying to determine what happened and why. Gwynn’s life is thrown into compete turmoil as she falls in love with Ruben, tries to stay safe, and discovers a heinous plot to cause a destructive “accident” with a major gas pipeline. Can she and Ruben’s team solve things before anyone else has to die or will they be too late?
Wow! The Cost of Crude by Lise-Inge Goss is an amazing thriller, full of mystery, suspense, romance and so many twists and turns it was hard to keep up at first. However, I soon sank into the story as it grabbed hold and wouldn’t let me go until it was all over. There were a number of different characters in the book with a lot of activity going on – what I would call a busy book. But, all the pieces do fall into place and all becomes clear. There is a neat little twist at the end and an unexpected person in the frame – and that’s all I will say except I hope to read more from Ms. Goss in the very near future.
