12 Feb 2021 Lies in High Places, by Dana Killion
Loved, loved, loved narrating this fast-paced thriller, Lies in High Places, by Dana Killion! Mystery, politics, greed—and fabulous protagonist, Andrea Kellner, an investigative journalist, “who doesn’t let anything get between her and her next scoop.”
The writing is terrific, the plot twists and moves and keeps you guessing, and Andrea is a smart, strong, wonderful, willful main character that you’ll identify with immediately. Plus it’s set in Chicago, so every corner turned brought back wonderful memories of my (too brief) time living there.
The blurb says it best:
A journalist. A sniper. A city on edge.
As investigative journalist Andrea Kellner is heading out of Chicago for a long weekend, a driver in front of her is shot and killed. The city’s gang violence problems have spilled onto a major expressway for the third time in a month.
Or is something else at play?
Her career faltering and marriage all but over, Andrea desperately needs a win, provided she can find out what’s really behind the shootings. With a boss who wants her sitting on the sidelines—or back in his bed, a competitive co-worker who just wants her gone, and a detective blinded by his own past, Andrea must look past CPD’s explanation and discover the truth behind the shootings.
Provided she can live to tell the story.
Lies in High Places is the first book in the Andrea Kellner crime fiction series. If you like complex plots and smart, ballsy, crime-solving women, you’ll love Dana Killion’s page-turning debut.
