UNEASY PREY: A Zoe Chambers Mystery by Annette Dashofy

Zoe is part of the ambulance crew and when they go out on a call, she recognizes the address.  This elderly lady has fallen before and needed help.  The problem this time is that she is beyond help.  They try to keep her alive and she tells them she didn't fall, she was pushed.  When she dies at the hospital it turns into murder.  They also think they know who the killers are.  They have some burglars that steal from old people that they haven't found yet.  This might have been a burglary gone wrong.

Henery Press and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published on March 27th.

This is a story of family needs and money.  People get desperate and desperate people do bad things.  It's sad when need exceeds love but it does happen. Zoe almost dies in this adventure.  I never imagined the killer would turn out to be it was. 

Zoe and Pete love each other but they are still working out where they will live.  When a reporter is in town working on the story, she flirts with Pete.  Zoe doesn't like that.  With that in the background, a thirteen year old boy who keeps getting in trouble for fighting, and looking for the killer both of them have plenty to do.

It's a good mystery but the story is a bit sad.  None of the people involved needed to die.  Sometimes life isn't fair.
