DEAD IN THE WATER By Annelise Ryan


I was delighted to receive this books as Mattie Winston life story is a favorite from the first book I read. I went back and read the earlier ones. Mattie is now a single mother of a year two old son. She is living with Detective Stave Hurley and his daughter, Emily. As usual, Mattie’s is hectic as Izzy has a heart attack and she is working with a stand in the coroner’s office. The first death is of a young woman who has been dead awhile. Next the horror of finding her co-worker murder and his companion dead. Mattie and Steve begin to explore the facts and surprised to find evidence that Matti’s estranged Father is involved. Mattie learns more information on the disappearance of her father. The various factors are skillfully brought together. I read this in one setting as I find I cannot put the books down. To get the full effect of the story read them in order but they can be read as a standalone as each story is complete with a tantalizing hint at further relevant information. I highly recommend this book and series. Disclosure: I received a free copy from Kensington Books through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.
