Twisted at the Root: A Jane Lawless Mystery by Ellen Hart

A solid mystery…

Part-time Minnesota private investigator Jane Lawless joins hands with her father, defense attorney Ray Lawless, after convicted killer Rashad May’s brother approaches Ray to get a retrial based on wrongful conviction. If a horde of suspects and some conflicting evidence were not enough to muddle the case, Jane’s own brother’s involvement in the case complicates the matter more. The deeper Jane ventures into the investigation, the harder it becomes for her to separate various lies from the truth. Hart excels at making even ancillary characters fully realized. The prose is top notch and the plot complex and air-tight. The identity of the killer will come as a surprise to even the hard-core mystery aficionados. Another solid addition to Hart’s long-running series.
