In “Waking Hours” by Lis Wiehl we meet forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris. Dani is brought in on a case involving the death of a local high school girl, Julie. The awful way that she died leaves the town in an uproar. Dani has help with the case from her former classmate Tommy Gunderson. Tommy was a NFL player and after a tragic accident he quit playing and moved back to his hometown with the goal of becoming a private investigator. Dani and Tommy question several of Julie’s classmates and discover that they were all involved in a passage party. The problem is none of them can remember what happened the night Julie died. Dani and Tommy know one of these kids knows the whole story behind her death and may have even been the one to kill her.
“Waking Hours” is the first book in the East Salem Trilogy. This is a very fast paced book full of suspense. This story has many twists and plots that will keep you guessing, and when you think you have everything figured out it will leave you with a cliffhanger. Lis Wiehl quickly became one of my favorite authors with her Triple Threat novels and she does not let her readers down with her new book. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Thomas Nelson.
