Book review: Sweetheart by Chelsea Cain (9781427205032) Book on CD

In reading the second installment of the Gretchen Lowell series, I was interested to find out what happened with the unusual relationship of Archie Sheridan (Portland police detective) and Gretchen Lowell (serial killer). Ms. Cain did not disappoint me.

Archie Sheridan is trying to mend his relationship with his wife and children. He has kept away from Gretchen Lowell, but his thoughts are always with her and the pills he takes for the pain caused by being Gretchen’s last torture victim, are taking their toll. Archie wants to die and Gretchen’s escape from prison has given him a plan to make his wish come true.

Susan Ward wants to expose Senator Castle’s past “affair” with a 14-year old, but there is a cover up that involves murder. Who killed her mentor, what have the bodies in the park have to do with the Castle story and who is trying to kill her?

Again, a great suspense thriller with two nail-biting mysteries to keep you reading until the ultimate climax. On to book 3.
