(A Lacie Wingate Mystery) Kindle Edition
by Barbara Lipe (Author)
Detective Lacie Wingate is haunted by the death of a young prostitute. She promises the girl protection from her pimp if she will testify against him in court. The girl agrees but he is released on a technicality. Later, in a random encounter, Lacie kills the pimp. Internal affairs ruled the shooting, self-defense. Still, she can’t convince herself she, unconsciously, made the decision to go for the kill instead of just wounding him.
Lacie resigns from the St. Louis police force and escapes to the sanctuary of her hometown, Graves Point.
An old friend is murdered and she is asked to investigate. She realizes that the evil she believes she left behind has followed her. Reluctantly, she reveals her secret to her ex, in order to find who is determined to destroy everything and everyone she holds dear before it is too late.
I just finished Blinded Sight by Barbara Lipe. I loved it! Its twists and turns keep you in suspense right up until the very end. I was impressed by the detail and knowledge of Barbara as she led me through this riveting mystery. The visuals were excellent. I could see, hear, taste and feel where ever this author took me in this story. Great job Barbara, give us more books soon!
