Living Victim by Stacy Green--A Review


SYNOPSIS:

Reader favorite Cage Foster returns in the Delta Detectives Series! 

If you loved the Delta Crossroads Series, you know Cage Foster as the one who tamed the Damned Yankee and helped to solve one of the grisliest crimes in Adams County history. Now a newly minted Criminal Investigator for the Adams County Police, Cage's life is once again turned upside down. His fiancée is expecting, Cage is terrified of being a bad father, and he's determined to prove himself worthy of his new position.

Living Victim (Delta Detectives #1) January 2015

When a hoarder is found dead in his bathtub, Cage Foster believes he's dealing with a natural death. A perimeter search reveals a hidden horror, and clues point to the kidnapping of a local girl once presumed dead. Cage must find the living victim before it's too late. Will he lose himself in the process?

FROM MY MIND'S EYE:

Cage Foster is a favorite character of mine and I enjoy Green's novellas--short crime suspense reads.    One thing about a novella is they are short and you can read a complete tale in one sitting, which lends itself to immediate  gratification rather than stretching the suspense for several days.

Green has a unique and refreshing writing style.   Her stories incorporate a lot of desperation to resolve the crimes, but the story is never rushed and flows smoothly to a satisfactory conclusion.

I highly recommend Green as an up and coming crime writer.   I have rated this a 4 Wink Read.
