Title: Blood & Justice: P.I. Mystery Series (A Jake & Anne Lincoln Thriller #1)
Author: Rayven T. Hill
Publisher: Ray of Joy Publishing
My rating is 5 stars.
While perusing online outlets for new authors I haven’t read or books being promoted various ways that looked interesting, I came across this series. Now, the author is on book # 11, which is to come out soon and I hope in print form. I thought it would be prudent to begin where the characters’ stories begin. Blood and Justice introduces us to a husband and wife team who become private investigators just starting out and while they begin with small tasks their lives and business are about to blossom!
Jeremy is our antagonist in the story, and the author does a great job showing us his story with the use of flashbacks. We learn how he was raised, who his parents were and their story as it impacts Jeremy. We also learn how Jeremy views some people who deserve what he dishes out and why he calls it justice.
Anne and Jake have a son named Matty who loves to wrestle with his Dad and do other interactive activities with him. Anne seems to be the one whose strength is administrating, organizing and getting a general sense of people. Jake is a hands-on kind of guy who interacts more with the police and prefers being on the move, doing anything to help solve the case rather than being cooped up in an office.
When a young girl named Jenny goes missing and the police have exhausted all possible leads, a detective sends the mother to his friends the Lincolns. Hank, the detective, is good friends with the Lincolns and helps in any way he can to get Jenny back home to her mother alive. While doing that, Hank begins to fall for Jenny’s mom, Amelia.
