Private Investigator Genevieve Delacourt has finally snagged her guy – police detective Mack Hackett. The pair are just heading into a restaurant for a romantic dinner when a teen boy comes barreling between them; literally. One moment of being in the right place at the right time (or the wrong place at the wrong time, depending on your point of view) changes the course of more than just one evening. In fact, it could change the course of Gen and Mack’s entire courtship.
A Thousand Tombs puts Gen in physical danger and puts her new relationship under enormous strain. Mack is a handsome yet secretive match for both Gen’s beauty and brains. And yet both of them have trouble trusting; a fact that’s hard enough without the mystery of that desperate teenager and four Italian coins. Gen’s instinct is to help and to get to the bottom of the situation. But it’s hard to put together a puzzle when you don’t know what the final picture is supposed to look like. Molly Greene does a great job revealing brief flashes of that final picture, including the reader in the action, intrigue, and suspense.
As the Gen Delacourt series continues, I grow to like and enjoy all of the characters more and more. (Mack’s my favorite, of course!) And I see more and more of the ties and strengths of family and friends throughout each story.
