A man is found dead in a fire, but it wasn’t the fire that killed him. A group of animal liberators have targeted a lab, but the lab doesn’t seem to be their real target. A killer is out to get people who have no connection to one another, but the lead investigator on the case is haunted by the ghosts of her past which spring up everywhere as she tries to work out precisely what is happening.
Cutting Edge by Allison Brennan was entertaining, and the story was novel. It didn’t have me nail-bitingly close to the edge of my seat, but I did want to find out what happened. The main character, Nora, is fantastically put together and very easy to empathise with, which helps with the overall storyline. I saw the end coming long before I got there, but it was still worth a read.
