Lethal Legacy-Guardians of Justice by Irene Hannon: Book Review

About the book: 

        A determined daughter . . . .
        A skeptical detective . . . .
        A deadly secret . . . 

The police say her father's death was suicide. Kelly Warren says it was murder--and she has new evidence to prove it. Detective Cole Taylor doesn't put much credence in her claim, and nothing in the case history review suggests foul play. But when he digs deeper  and discovers startling information linking her to a long-buried secret, the danger escalates. Is history repeating itself? And who wants Kelly silenced?

My thoughts:  WOW!  A closed case with new information brought to light that leads to further unsettling incidences and coincidences.  Skepticism gives way to tenacity as they probe deeper and deeper into the case.

Detective Cole Taylor takes a call from Kelly Warren whose father's death was ruled a suicide by the department.  Kelly has new information that she believes confirms her intuitive opinion that her father absolutely did not commit suicide. Out of courtesy to a grieving only relative of the deceased man, Kelly who is stunningly beautiful,  detective Taylor investigates.  They further pursue a re-do of the scene of the death - her father's home.

Events turn deadly when Kelly reacts to her deadly peanut allergy at a location where there should not have been any peanut allergens.  Fast forward....... things begin to enliven and move at a quicker pace as the killer tries to take the killing to a newer level.

A beautiful lady who is in harms way.  A determined detective who sees her as a potential romantic interest.  An effort to maintain true professionalism during the investigation.  A chilling and calculating murderer.  A crime of the past that bleeds into the present.  All this makes for a sit-down-and-finish-it-now read!
