on Tour April 16 - May 18, 2018
When it comes to murder, even brilliant scientists aren’t immune.
The night Harold Munson is shot dead in his car, the primary suspect is the man’s brainiac wife. But Charlotte, who has a passion for science and sex with strangers, swears all she wants is a Nobel Prize for curing brain cancer, even if that requires fudging her research and a few dead patients along the way.
When the next body drops, all signs point to Charlotte, but Detective Sam Lagarde doggedly follows the clues until he has his own Eureka moment.

This is the second Detective Sam Lagarde book I have read by this author. Just, like the prior novel; Detective Lagarde is the star in the book. In fact, I have grown to like him even more. While, the other characters seemed a bit weak and dimwitted; it was Lagarde that kept a focus on the case.
Harold may not be the brilliant scientist like his wife, Charlotte but he didn't deserve being murdered. He and Charlotte were in a loveless marriage. Charlotte is a snake. While, the story did move at a steady pace; I could not tell you or remember all of the parts in this book. There was a lack of intensity. A plus side is that I actually didn't see the ending coming. Due to the fact that I like Detective Lagarde and would like to see him in action again, I would read more books in this series.
