Book Review: Suspicious Circumstances

So, I’m sure most of you remember Sandra Ruttan, she is a wonderful and witty writer from Canada. Have you had a chance to read her new book, Suspicious Circumstances?

Reporter Lara Kelly is anxious to put her journalism career on the right path. When a man shows up in her office with a video that appears to show a woman falling to her death she’s intrigued, but suspicious. The man claims he went to the police and that they refused to investigate.

Unsure if the tape is a hoax, Lara proceeds cautiously. When she pulls together enough evidence to print a story about an apparent suicide, the local police captain is furious.

Detective Tymen Farraday, the newest cop in a precinct plagued by scandal and rumors of corruption, is ordered to investigate and discredit the reporter if necessary. When potential evidence is stolen and Lara is attacked, Farraday is forced to put his grudge against reporters aside and work with Lara to solve the murder while trying to protect her from the killer.

Just when they think they have the evidence to arrest a suspect, two more murders turn the investigation in an unexpected direction.

The guilty have already shown that they’ll stop at nothing to protect their secrets.

In a town where one person holds all the power, not even the police can be trusted.

And their prime suspect isn’t the only person Lara and Farraday need to worry about.


Sounds exciting doesn’t it? Well that’s because it is. I highly recommend you check this book out. This story will suck you in and refuse to release you until the very end. If you love a good mystery you don’t want to miss this book.

I seem to recall someone named Sandra Ruttan. She reads blogs and used to comment a fair bit.

Then she got strep, and a deadline. Sigh.

James, thank you for the thoughtful review. I'm really flattered. I know it seems silly, but I'm always surprised when someone says they like the book. And if you'd like a signed bookplate just email me with your address and I'll send it off.

Not to mention keeping up with all of the Spinetingler stuff, Sandra. No worries, I'm glad you liked the review. I can't wait to read your next one. :D

Happy to be of service, Liz.
