Cover Your Eyes

Idgie Says:
This is the first in a four book series based in Music City.  

I tend to shy away from police procedural murder novels, but said yes to this one because of it's location for the novel and the fact that it has a set book number series and that intrigued me.  There's an "end game" planned for the story line.

While I do not enjoy crime thrillers in general, I will say that the characters in this novel are real and keep your interest.

I had hoped that there would be more behind the scenes knowledge of the area and the music industry - not too in-depth, but enough so that I could pull out some interesting trivia at my next gathering.  While the murders and investigation are set in the area, the location is very much background fluff. 

Again though I will say that the characters were interesting and you stayed invested with events surrounding them.  I still wince at the violence though.  :)  If you enjoy the crime/thriller novels, this is a very satisfactory one to sink your teeth into.

Book Description:
Don't Look
At first, they struggle to escape. Then a torrent of blows rains down upon their bodies until their eyes cloud over in final agony. The killer shows no remorse--just a twisted need to witness each victim's last terrified moments.
Don't Speak
Public defender Rachel Wainwright is struggling to reopen a decades-old case, convinced that the wrong man is in prison. Homicide detective Deke Morgan doesn't want to agree. But if Rachel's hunch is correct, whoever fatally bludgeoned young, beautiful Annie Dawson thirty years ago could be the source of a new string of brutal slayings.
Just Prepare To Die
Rachel's investigation is about to reveal answers--but at a price she never thought to pay. Now she's become the target of a rage honed by years of jealousy and madness. And a murderer is ready to show her just how vicious the truth can be. . .
