"Waiting On" Wednesday, Damage Control (Sept 25)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Detectives Annie Avants and Tom Weston tackle one of the most perplexing murder mysteries since they began working together. 
The crime victim is a local, well-respected attorney who has gone missing. 
There’s not much criminal evidence to go on. His car was found an hours drive out of Bakersfield with blood on the passenger seat. 
No body has been found. 
His staff is in a quandary. He had a new trial scheduled to begin the next morning. Everything was set to go. 
And then, he just disappeared. 
A mysterious package left in the restroom of the Kern County Courthouse leads our detectives to believe that the attorney is dead. 
And now. . . another person has gone missing! 
Will our detectives find the answers before a media frenzy erupts in the Kern County/Bakersfield area? Will the FBI be called in to help? Will they come to understand the kinds of criminal minds that lead someone to be a serial killer and narrow the list of suspects? 
This fast-paced crime fiction detective thriller will keep you reading well into the night to find out ‘who dun it?”

Damage Control is the second book in the Det. Annie Avants mystery series by Renee Benzaim.  You can read my five – kitty review of the first book in the series, Cause of Death, here.

Cause of Death was amazing ― a police procedural with a very likable protagonist, and a very unusual cause of death for the murders.  I have been eager to read the sequel, Damage Control, ever since finishing Cause of Death.  

Damage Control will be published on September 30, 2013.
