I have just read the audio recording of Every kind of wicked, a Gardiner & Renner thriller by Lisa Black.
Maggie Gardiner is a beautiful, brilliant crime scene tech. Jack Renner is an almost deliberately non-descript, ordinary looking but extremely astute Police Detective. A killer is on the loose but only Maggie & Jack recognise they are about to kill again. Everyone thinks Maggie and Jack are partners in life and work, but this is a carefully maintained cover-story, they’re truly only linked in their pursuit of justice. Why all the pretense? What’s the secret that binds Maggie & Jack in their pursuit of justice? Will it help them solve the latest crime spree? Or will it tear their worlds apart – exposing them to professional, public, personal ruin or permanent harm?
A very good mystery that I really enjoyed. I look forward to reading another thriller from the Gardiner & Renner cri-fi series of Black’s collection.
