REVIEW for Cold Case

A big thank you goes out to one of my favorite "book" people - Adam at Harlequin Books.

TITLE: Cold Case

AUTHOR: Kate Wilhelm

GENRE: Thriller

RATING: 4 Stars

I use to read Kate Wilhelm all the time and for some unkown reason, I stopped reading her. I am glad that I picked up Cold Case because this book features Wilhelm at her best. In Cold Case, we find Barbara Holloway is back again. I really like this character as I always found her to be extremely savy and smart and quite entertaining at the same time! So, she is always a joy to read.

Cold Case takes a look at a case that was extremely delicate - 22 years ago - hence the title Cold Case. Holloway finds herself with a new murder on her hands - except that the victim was once accused of murder himself - Holloway will find herself caught up in the middle of both the Cold Case and the new murder and must beat the clock in order to save the accused who may or may not be guilty. I loved the fact that the author did such a great job of joining the past and the present - and she does it in a clever way - without making it feel as though it is "forced" or plot oriented.

Great pacing as always - this is never a problem with Wilhelm's novels - she is a master at keeping the story moving.

I really, really enjoyed this one

Boy, just the cover on this is enough to make you read it.

Hahaha - the letters for the word verification is - intend
I love it when sometimes you get a real word.

Is this the book that both Donna and Avis wanted? Did Cindy want this too? I can't remember. I'll have to keep a mental note of this.
