Irene Kelly's best friend was killed by a bomb placed on his front porch. He was a old school newspaper man. Irene's search for O'Connel's killer leads her to a decades old unsolved murder of a woman dubbed Hannah. Irene's life as well as the lives of those she cares about are put at risk. This is a fast moving story, a real page turner. Although the murders are gruesome, the written detail is not. This is a quality which I greatly appreciate in a book. I don't care for detailed gory exposition in anything Zi read. I will definitely be on the hunt for more books by Jan Burke ( )

This is the first in the Irene Kelly series. I enjoyed it and found it to be an exciting, edge-of-your seat mystery.

Back Cover Blurb:
For thirty-five years the identity of the dismembered woman found under the Las Piernas pier has remained a mystery. What secret did she take to her grave? Southern California reporter Irene Kelly has uncovered a maze of forensic records and confidential files that suggest a motive far more sinister than anyone imagined. The discovery has brought her close to Detective Frank Harriman, and closer still to exposing a killer who will resort to anything to keep his secrets buried - and Irene silenced forever....... ( )

While I found the mystery part of the story pretty easy to figure out, I still enjoyed this book a great deal. As it is the first in a series, a lot of time was spent developing the characters and explaining relationships, etc. I thought it was a good blend of mystery, humor and romance. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series. ( )

Engaging mystery featuring journalist Irene Kelly and Det. Frank Hannigan - set in southern California and bridging past and present crimes. Good character development and nice blend of crime and romance. ( )
