Book Reviews
Let Justice Descend
By Lisa Black
Reviewed by Sue Wilder  
Forensics expert Maggie Gardiner is called to a bizarre death scene: US Senator Diane Cragin, keys in hand, dead on the ground at her front door two days before Election Day. Maggie is joined by Cleveland homicide detectives Jack Renner and his partner Thomas Riley. Despite the dark and rainy conditions, they quickly identify the cause of death: electrocution. A simple network of a metal grate, wiring and outlet was waiting for the Senator to complete the circuit.  
     Cragin's chief of staff points a finger at Cragin's opponent Joey Green as a possible suspect and also shares some threatening correspondence in the Senator's mail. The detectives find some interesting clues in Cragin's home.Once news of Cragin's murder is made public, attention quickly returns to the political cycle and the impending election.  
     Maggie begins her forensic investigation of the crime scene evidence. Given Ms. Black's extensive background as a crime scene investigator and latent print examiner, the forensic explanations are fascinating. The details are interesting, authentic and clearly described to the reader.  
     A parallel story line revolves around Jack Renner and his connection to a series of vigilante killings. Maggie is an accomplice because she has figured out Renner's involvement. Their secret is threatened by Herald reporter Lori Russo's interest in the vigilante murders.  
     Let Justice Descend is book #5 in the Gardiner and Renner series. As with the previous books in the series, the first couple of chapters expertly set the scene and the storyline, making it difficult to stop reading. Pile on a cast of well-drawn characters, compelling forensic details, and personal motives that drive the action: a perfect mix for a non-stop thriller.  
     Ms. Black's previous Gardiner/Renner book, Perish, was a finalist for the MWA's Sue Grafton Memorial Award. Let Justice Descend may be read without having read the previous books in the series, but it's safe to assume that a new reader may want to go back and start at the beginning.  
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.  KEN First Printing, Signed:$26.00
 
A Cruel Deception
By Charles Todd
Reviewed by Stephanie Saxon Levine
While the fighting in World War I has ended, the war will not be over until a peace treaty is signed by all parties.  In Paris, discord threatens to stall the restoration of orderly life.
     Nursing Sister Bess Crawford is interrupted at her work with wounded soldiers in England by a request from a Matron. Bess agrees to go to Paris to check on the Matron's son. She finds him in deep trouble, dosing his sorrows with opiates and alcohol, trying to overcome a terrible memory that he can fully recall only in nightmares. He has left his duties at the peace conference.
     Bess is torn between notifying Matron of her son's condition and working to learn the source of his affliction so that she can help restore him to normalcy before alerting his mother. Bess realizes she must work in haste to save the Lieutenant.
     Like the earlier books in this fine series, A Cruel Deception immerses us in the circumstances people faced during "The War to End All War" and its aftermath. Like other readers, I wondered how a series about a nurse at the battlefront could continue after the end of hostilities. The mother-and-son coauthors known as Charles Todd have brought the war and its aftermath vividly to life. We experience the frustrations of daily life in the postwar era, when people began to realize that, despite their greatest desires, ordinary days would never be the same. We suffer with the Lieutenant, with those who try to help him, and with Bess Crawford, confronting and trying to aid troubled souls while facing concerns of her own.
     This is the eleventh Bess Crawford Mystery, but can be read as a standalone. Indeed, if the reader is new to the series and begins with this book, he or she may very well want to read them all.
