One of my most beloved things to do is read. I have been been reading ever since I can remember. Its such a great way to escape from the world. So I figured since I am doing this blog I might as well make this a recurring section. What is on Katie’s Kindle?
Good Night Irene An Irene Kelly Novel by Jan Burke
First off, I have read this series a handful of times. Her series was probably my first “grown up” collection. The series is incredible I believe there are maybe 11 in it so far. I could go on about the series but I’m only talking about the very first book right now.
Good Night Irene is a thrilling suspense novel. The main character Irene use to be a reporter for “The Express” in Las Piernas California. She quit after a confrontation with her boss but kept close with her mentor and colleague O’Connor. One night after having a couple of drinks Irene drops O’Connor off at his house and the next morning he opens a package and his house explodes. Irene is then reunited with an old friend homicide detective Frank Harriman. Frank comes Irene’s house by to talk to her, while talking someone in a car shoots at Irene’s house. Irene immediately returns to The Express where O’Connor was working before he was murdered. She goes through his notes and discovers he may have solved a murder that had haunted him for decades “Handless Hannah” a young girl who was found with her face smashed in and her hands and feet cut off to avoid identification. However, using new technology that was unavailable when the case was first under investigation O’Connor had found out who the girl was. Irene and Frank uncover the truth and vow to set it free in honor of O’Connor.
Of course there is a ton more detail that I wont share with you, if interested you will need to read it yourself.
It is without a doubt a page turner from the very beginning, it will leave you wanting more and thankfully Jan Burke delivers a slew of books that follow!
I will have this book re-read by tonight and hopefully start on the next one
