March 21 – April 15, 2022 Virtual Book Tour
Andrea Kane delivers yet another edgy, suspenseful mystery for the crew of Forensics Instincts.
It also plays into my love of “the details” with its thorough forensic investigation.
While the team has solved difficult and dangerous cases before, they have no idea what awaits them when they take on Aimee Bregman’s case. An executive for a company that deals in CBD products—mainly beer—Aimee hires FI when her mentor is murdered and her life is now in danger. The story then deep dives into the ugly, ruthless world of the rich and powerful, a college scandal, and those who’ll do anything to keep their secrets… even murder.
And if that wasn’t enough, there’s a serial killer with his own motives and lists of victims. Stepping inside his twisted mind made me look around and turn the lights on. His method of punishment and murder is not for the faint of heart.
I also enjoyed getting to know more about the FI team and the relationships between them, and go, Ryan!
Number nine in the Forensics Instincts series, At Any Cost ranks near the top of the series for me. Kane’s talent with distraction and red herrings kept me guessing right up until the end.
Aimee Bregman had the perfect life. She had an enviable job as head of marketing for an up-and-coming CBD-infused beer that was taking the tri-state area by storm. She had cultivated a massive social media following that showcased the beer at college campus parties and alumni events―and had fun doing it. She had an attentive, steady boyfriend and friends who believed in her. Everything was going right.
But when her long-time mentor, Rita, sets up a business meeting with an important influencer―her life crashes all around her. The casual meeting over drinks suddenly devolves into a shouting match between all parties, and any chance of a new business relationship is over before it begins. Hours later, when the NYPD shows up at Aimee’s apartment, questioning her about Rita’s abrupt disappearance―foul play suspected―Aimee realizes she’s in way over her head.
Fearing that Rita has been murdered, and that she may be next, Aimee hires Forensic Instincts to keep her safe and figure out what’s really going on.
Forensic Instincts, a brilliant investigative firm who walks the fine line between legal and illegal, solves challenging and high-profile cases when the bureaucratic restrictions imposed on law enforcement get in the way of achieving results. But neither Aimee nor Forensic Instincts realize how ruthless, how connected, their adversaries are. As dangerous and powerful people are threatened with exposure, anyone is fair game for elimination. And when multiple victims die at the hands of a sociopathic serial killer, it gets harder and harder to tell where the battle lines are drawn… and who might die next.
