So I didn't get my book Strand of Deception in time for the CFBA blog tour, but yesterday I cracked it open--and finished it by last night. It was that good. I've not read a lot by Robin Caroll but what I have read has always been good. The premise behind this one was so intriguing I couldn't wait to get started. You can read the basic premise in the CFBA post below.
One thing I realized after I got the book was that it was book three in the series. I have not read books 1 or 2 so there were a few times I felt a little lost as to the backstory but not enough to slow me down. :) I plan to get those other two books as soon as I can now that I'm hooked on these characters.
What I loved most about this book was how well researched and developed it was. I loved feeling like I was learning about DNA science as I read and that the author didn't try to "dumb" it down just to entertain. Overall, I would suggest anyone who loves CSI, Law & Order, or any great suspense to order your copy of Strand of Deception today!
