Mystery. Intrigue. Death.
Annabel Lee plops you right down in the middle of the action, leaving you to unravel the clues of who, what, when, where, why, and how. The answers may not be what you are expecting.
The certainly aren’t what private investigator Trudi Coffey is expecting. Not even her ex-partner, who knew the man who started the whole ordeal, was anticipating. The question remains, can they follow the trail of clues, lead by a man who can’t speak, in order for find the secret before it’s too late?
When I read suspense, I usually go for the romantic variety. Annabel Lee does not fit into that mold. This is a fast paced read, full of twists and turns. A little girl’s life is on the line and by all appearances no one has enough of the information to save her in time.
I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next one in the series when it comes out this fall.
Fourteen miles east of Peachtree, Alabama, a secret is hidden.
The secret’s name is Annabel Lee.
She doesn’t know why her enigmatic uncle has stowed her deep underground in a military-style bunker. He’s left her with a few German words, a barely controlled guard dog, and a single command: “Don’t open that door for anybody, you got it? Not even me.”
Miles away in Atlanta, private investigator Trudi Coffey is visited by a mysterious older man calling himself Dr. Smith. He’s been trailing a man for a decade–a man she met through her ex-partner Samuel Hill–and the trail has led him to her office. The last thing Trudi wants to do is to contact Samuel. But it will take both of them to unravel this mystery–before it’s too late.
