Lis Wiehl – A Matter of Trust

A matter of trustAfter Heart of Ice, A Matter of Trust was my second crime fiction book I read by Lis Wiehl & April Henry. After her husband’s death, prosecutor Mia Quinn is back in office, but constantly struggling between work, her two children and financial debts. Her friend Colleen is murdered while she and Mia were on the phone. Colleen was working on a bullying case in a school class that escalated into criminal offences. Mia has the task of investigating both cases, teaming with detective Charlie Carlson. With her son Gabe of the same age, the line between professional and private investigations, possible next targets is thin. Will she find out who did it, in time?

Mia’s character is portrayed well, with enough to leave for future installments of this crime series. The book touches on current themes to which much readers can relate personally, such as gun control, cyber-bullying and work/life balance as a single working mother. The search’s on from page 1 and the killer only found at the very end. A Matter of Trust can be trusted as to-read crime mystery.
