Settled Blood by Mari Hannah

A young woman is found dead at the base of Hadrian's Wall in England.  Kate Daniels is expecting a sex crime, but that's not the case.  The woman has several broken bones; it appears she was dropped from the air.  The most chilling fact the coroner finds is that she was still conscious when she landed...

Witness Impulse and Edelweiss allowed me to download a copy of this ebook for review (thank you).  It was published November 19th, so you can find a copy at your local bookstore now.

The identity of the girl is a mystery, so they look at missing persons files.  While they are doing that, a friend of the superintendent's reports his daughter is missing and he's received a threat. The dead girl resembles the man's daughter but isn't her.

An incident that happened years ago and one that has happened currently is what created this situation.  It takes good detective work and leaving no stone unturned to find the killer.  They do.  The bad news?  He won't tell them where the victim is...

It's a fast read while you fearfully wait to see if the innocent girl will survive or if the killer hid her too well.  You won't be bored.

Happy reading.
