In The Fingerprint of Destiny, Elena Borgias Sinclair is a struggling reporter and editor of The Hope’s Point Gazette, a small-town newspaper. A series of landmark homes are destroyed by fire and the community believes that the Latino immigrants are the culprits. It is supposed to be just another arson and a story for Ellie to cover. Everything changes when she finds out that her estranged mother, Hortensia Borgias Sinclair, is one of the latest victims. It might be a destined fate as her mother often claimed, but Ellie suspects that there must be something more to it; something more sinister. She must find out who is the real arsonist and their reason for the crime. This gripping mystery tale is written by Laura Schofer.
The Fingerprint of Destiny is a fascinating mystery with a protagonist who I couldn't get enough of. Author Laura Schofer has certainly got me intrigued with her story. While mystery fiction sometimes has a tendency to lose steam, it is definitely not the case here. Schofer’s inside knowledge of journalism and the setting serves her well, and her skill in crafting page-turning scenarios also helps. She doesn't beat around the bush, thus making The Fingerprint of Destiny very well paced. Her no-frills prose lends itself well to this flawless tale because she just gets down to business without excessively long pauses while the characters examine their motives or engage in some pace-killing reflection.
Overall, this is a marvelous read that kept me guessing and entertained until the very end.
