A Matter of Trust:
A Mia Quinn Mystery

Lis Wiehl

A Review

From the first chapter, A Matter of Trust draws the reader into the life of an experienced prosecutor and widowed mother of two.  Based on events in the author’s life, the book is as exciting as it is interesting.  

The story focus on three crimes which may be connected or not.  Two prosecutors have been murdered, five years apart - same kind of gun, similar circumstances.  Are the deaths related?  It is up to Mia Quinn and homicide detective Charlie Carlson to locate and prosecute the perpetrator or perpetrators.

Darin Dane has, supposedly, killed himself after being viciously bullied and assaulted - that is the dad’s story.  Now Mia and Charlie must determine how much of that story is truth and how much is story.  

While fighting crime, Mia also must find time to respond to the needs and problems of a four year old daughter and a 14 year old son.  NIghtmares, drug use, adolescence all add to the issues that Mia Quinn must face on the home front.  

The reader looking for a mystery with a hint of faith will find Lis Wiehl’s newest book worth the time spent reading the book.  

This review is based on a free electronic copy of this book provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are mine alone.
