A MEANS TO AN END: The Third Book in A Cold Case Investigation Series

(A Cold Case Investigation 3)

by Lissa Marie Redmond

Buffalo police detective Lauren Riley risks her life to close the book for good on a killer who’s never paid for his crimes.

When cold case detective Lauren Riley returns to work after being stabbed by a fellow police officer, it’s clear that her troubles are far from over. The body of a young woman has been found in the same woods as a murder victim from one of Lauren’s most horrifying cases. It doesn’t take long for Lauren to be back at square one confronting David Spencer, the quietly deranged man she could never prove was a killer. Lauren convinces the police chief to put together a task force to uncover the connections between the brutal slaying of both women and the murder of two cops. But things go south quickly, forcing Lauren into a deadly game that she can’t afford to lose.

(A Cold Case Investigation 2)

by Lissa Marie Redmond

Cold case detective Lauren Riley wakes up in the hospital certain of two things: she was stabbed and left for dead…and the person who did it was a cop.

After being brutally stabbed at her desk late one night, Lauren Riley works her way backwards through the haze to piece together who attacked her and why. A mysterious phone message forces her to enlist the help of a retired lieutenant to track down a witness who is desperate not to be found. As she digs into the Buffalo Police Department’s hidden past she uncovers a terrible secret, one a fellow officer would kill to protect.

Packed with suspense and featuring a detective who “relentlessly—and with morbid humor—gets the job done” (Booklist), The Murder Book continues a series praised by Kirkus Reviews as “an excellent police procedural combined with a psychological thriller.”

Fall is my favorite time of year

Fall is my favorite time of year. Hands down. No question. I love the changing of the leaves, the smell of apple pie baking, pumpkin spice everything. As we head toward Thanksgiving I am reminded daily of how much I have to be thankful for. And as the winter approaches it occurs to me that I have to start winterizing my house, making sure everything out by our pool is put away and the warm blankets are washed. Winter is a great time to put the kettle on, snuggle up by the fireplace and curl up with a good book. If you’re looking for that perfect story to cozy up with on a cold winter’s night, follow this link:


Let me know what you think of her selections. I think I have a favorite, but I may be a little biased. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
