Sergeant Detective Jane Perry is good at her job, really good. In Revelations by Laurel Dewey, when she is called to work a case in Midas, CO, she is hesitant, it’s supposed to be her vacation. Jane has just found out that she has an abnormal pap smear and could more then likely have cancer. She is ready to take a long break from work and from life, but her “Boss” Sergeant Weyler needs her help to solve this case. Unfortunately, going from Denver to a small town can be difficult, especially when the Sheriff is a jerk.
I love the way the story starts out! It begins with you following Jordan Copeland through the woods and he is running from himself. He finds that he has blood on his hands, but doesn’t know how it got there or even why it’s there. Now Jake Van Gorden is missing and they have Jordan in custody for his murder and abduction. Can Jane prove that her gut is right and Jordan had nothing to do with it, or will she just prove the State’s case?
There is the use of the f* word quite a bit and some other swearing. I was pulled into the story quite quickly with Jordan Copeland’s story and was intrigued to find out more about him. I was disappointed with all of the swearing that happens. I would recommend this book to someone who doesn’t mind swearing and some violence. I hope you can enjoy this book and find out if Jordan really is a killer.
