Book: Playing Dead by Allison Brennan

Highly recommend this mystery by Allison Brennan. Main Characters: Tom O'Brien, former cop who was wrongfully convicted of the murders of his wife and her lover 15 years ago, daughter: Claire, a fraud investigator who believed her father was guilty of these crimes, until she began her own investigations, Mitch, FBI agent who befriends Claire under false pretenses, and a psychopath killer who develops an obsession with Claire. Tom O'Brien was one of the convicts who escaped in a previous Allison Brennan's mystery. Although shot by one of the other convicts in the blizzard of Montana, he survived and only wants to prove his innocence to his daughter. The story begins with the disappearance of a law student who firmly believed in Tom O'Brien's innocence and had evidence to support his theory. Claire becomes involved in pursuing the law student's steps and discovers irregularities with her father's trial. Mitch is caught in a deception and wants to protect Claire as they follow the clues to this mystery. I highly recommend this book as well as other mysteries by Allison Brennan.

Grade: A
