Book Review: Girls, Crimes, and the Ruling Body
A legislative intern with secrets that could unravel the governing elite vanishes into the night in Albany, New York. Seven years later, another young woman disappears in a suburb of the nation’s Capital. The only connection between both missing women is Ryan McNeil, the chief of staff to a rising congressman.
Under suspicion, Ryan must now prove his innocence in these women’s abductions; but in the ruthless world of politics—where the line between crime and moral authority blurs—there is no one he can trust. With his life at stake, Ryan confronts the elaborate lies of his lover, his wife, and his political mentor to uncover the identities of a murderer and manipulator.
While Ryan tries desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife and stepdaughter, the desires and deceits of those around him undermine his family and also the integrity of government. Innocent of murder, but implicated in this political world of deception, Ryan discovers the only truth is power.
Looking for your next mystery, suspense, thriller then you need to pick up a copy of this book. I really enjoyed it a lot. It started out strong and hooked me with the first chapter. The story moved at a fast pace and there was never a dull moment. Love or hate the characters, it means that I was invested in them either way.
Ryan is one of those characters that you feel for him. I kind of figured out where the storyline was going but still there were some twists that I did not see coming like that one moment need the end of the story. Talk about a big bang. I look forward to reading more books by Mr. Ziman. He definitely knows how to write stories that suck you in.
