"A Mia Quinn Mystery"

REVIEW BY: L. Bankhead

     Another installment in the Mia Quinn mystery series is here! I was so excited when this book came out.  Were you?  You should be, since Lis Wiehl doesn't disappoint. This book continues to expand the story behind Kenny Zhong who we met before in the series.  Kenny has become involved in the snakeheads, who organize human trafficking from China.  A string of murder and crime unfold for Mia Quinn, and it's her job to find out what connects to Zhong and what does not.
     In true Lis Wiehl fashion, the story is deftly crafted from the perspective of a prosecutor and homicide detective. I learn so much about crime and the legal system within each of her books, that I'm always kept fascinated.   It's a regular Wiehl thriller with plenty of twists and surprises.  Spoiler: Bo Yee's character is pretty cool.  I would recommend this book to older teens and up.  There is mention of brothel's, rape, murder, human trafficking, seduction and other adult topics.  All of the topics are issues our country faces daily, and are written in a matter-of-fact way.  But proceed with caution if these issues are upsetting to you.  On the other hand, this book is another top-notch mystery from Lis Wiehl that I am glad I didn't miss.
