Never Tell

A man is dead, shot three times in his home office. But his computer has been shot twelve times, and when the cops arrive, his pregnant wife is holding the gun.

D.D. Warren arrives on the scene and recognizes the woman--Evie Carter--from a case many years back. Evie's father was killed in a shooting that was ruled an accident. But for D.D., two coincidental murders is too many.

Flora Dane sees the murder of Conrad Carter on the TV news and immediately knows his face. She remembers a night when she was still a victim--a hostage--and her captor knew this man. Overcome with guilt that she never tracked him down, Flora is now determined to learn the truth of Conrad's murder.

But D.D. and Flora are about to discover that in this case the truth is a devilishly elusive thing. As layer by layer they peel away the half-truths and outright lies, they wonder: How many secrets can one family have?

My Review

My feelings towards this book surprised me. This is because the last prior books I enjoyed a lot and this included the recent short story that was to hold me until the release of this book. D.D. Warren is a big reason why I liked the prior books. While, I liked her in this book, she could not hold the whole story alone strong enough to keep my attention. In fact, I struggled to find a emotional connection towards the characters and the story as the whole package. 

Despite, the lack of emotional connection towards the characters, I did keep reading the book and finished it. Sadly, nothing truly came out and grabbed my attention. I can't remember a lot of details about the story. While, this book missed the mark with me, I did look forward to reading the next book in the series.
