Laurie Moran’s professional life is a success–her television show Under Suspicion is a hit, both in the ratings and its record of solving cold cases. But her romantic break from former host Alex Buckley has left her with on-air talent she can’t stand–Ryan Nichols–and a sense of loneliness, despite her loving family.
Now Ryan has suggested a new case. Three years ago, Virginia Wakeling, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and one of the museum’s most generous donors, was found in the snow, after being thrown from the museum’s roof on the night of its most celebrated fundraiser, the Met Gala. The leading suspect then and now is her much younger boyfriend and personal trainer, Ivan Gray. Laurie’s skepticism about the case is upended by a tip from her father’s NYPD connection, and soon Laurie realizes there are a bevy of suspects–including Virginia’s trusted inner circle.
This was such an easy and quick read. Absolutely perfect if you want something you can fly through. The mystery is intriguing and kept me engaged the whole time. My only issue was that there wasn’t as many suspects as there sometimes is. Usually there’s quite a few and it’s much more difficult to see what’s going on. There were relatively few possibilities in this book which made the ending less exciting. Not every character had a secret either, which kind of bothered me. Usually each character had something to hide and I didn’t feel like that was the case here. But overall it was a great book with a good story and interesting characters. Would definitely recommend.
