A Deadly Business by Lis Wiehl

Into the Wild

Read A Deadly Business Online Free - A prosecutor of violent criminals. A detective on a dangerous beat. When these two pros take on an off-the-books case, the line between professional and personal becomes perilously blurred. 

When a twenty-two-year-old convict walks into the courtroom, his eyes confirm what Mia Quinn already guesses: he blames her for his conviction. In seconds, he knocks her to the ground and holds a razor blade to her throat. While she manages to escape without injury, it's just one more reminder that Mia's job prosecuting Seattle's s most dangerous criminals is far from low risk.

As a single mom, the last thing Mia wants is for her work to follow her home or discover that it already has.

Now Detective Charlie Carlson is suggesting the very thing Mia doesn't want to believe—that her accountant husband’s deadly car accident was no accident at all. When Mia and Charlie encounter resistance to reopening the case, they take the investigation into their own hands. And they find much more than they bargained for.

Was Mia's husband more than an accountant . . . and less than an honest man? As the truth becomes more shocking and the case grows more complex, her husband's killers take note of Mia . . . and her children. How far will this prosecutor go to learn the truth about her husband—and how far will she have to go to protect her family?

There are several things I look for in a book that, to me, make it a good book. The only positive about “A Deadly Business” is that it was fast moving, primarily due to the very short chapters. 304 pages, 69 pages. I enjoy novels where I can identify to the characters on some level, where I can r...

This series is pretty good-- good enough that I plan to finish it if my library will get the third book-- but definitely not as good as some I've read. Also, I don't know that I would actually classify these books as Christian Fiction (which is what I was told they were). Clean? Yes. Though, perha...
