Evidence of Life - Barbara Taylor Sissel I had the good luck of receiving an ARC of this book. It was the first book by this author I have read but will certainly not be the last.

This book is wonderfully written. I enjoyed it from start to finish. I felt the story flowed very nicely and the writing was very expressive. The author captured my interest immediately and held it all the way through. I felt that the ending was true to the story and brought closure.

The character development was superb. Each character, even the absent ones, had a vital role in the plot. There really was no extra baggage to wade through and distract from the storyline. The relationships between the characters were realistic and added to the story.

This book is due to be published in March, 2013 and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good, solid contemporary mystery.
