Описание

On the way to the emergency room, an elderly woman regains consciousness long enough to inform paramedic Zoe Chambers that her fall down the basement steps was no accident. Before she can say more, she succumbs to her injuries, launching Zoe and Police Chief Pete Adams into the investigation of a burglary ring targeting the area's vulnerable senior citizens.

Zoe—in spite of Pete's objections—takes it upon herself to act as protection detail after the con men, disguised as water company employees, set their sights on Zoe's beloved former landlady. It's a decision that eventually puts Zoe in harm's way.

With Zoe already recovering from one close call, Pete must race against time to stop the crime ring—and a dangerous killer—before they strike again.

    This series gets better with each book. Zoe Chambers, EMT and deputy coroner, returns to her job as EMT after recuperating from knee injury. She immediately gets involved in incidents of elders being scammed and robbed in their rural community. When Zoe attends an incident of a senior falling down the stairs she is concerned about the woman. Before transporting her to the hospital she says, “Didn’t fall, I was pushed.” Zoe is not not only on the case of the scammer and thefts, but they are now murderers. Pete is also dealing with his father's move to an assisted living facility. His father has alzheimers and thinks someone at "the hotel he is staying in" is killing the guests. Is there something happening at the residence?

    Zoe is one of my favorite characters, smart, caring, and her actions always grounded in reality. She is an amateur sleuth to some degree, but with her job as deputy coroner, she is entitled to information. While the mystery is exceptionally good, the underlying framework of dealing with aging loved ones pushes it over the top. I did figure out who the perpetrator was, but did not know why or how some of the other suspects fit into the mystery. The ending was sad but tied all the loose ends together. The other characters, the police, EMTs, Zoe's cousin and the other residents of Mongahela County, are all realistic, small town friendly and people I would love to know. I highly recommend this book and series.

    I can't believe the author has written a book that is even better than the last. I love the series and Zoe has to be hands down one of the best characters I have read. She is stubborn, smart and very protective of her family and friends. I'm not sure how I feel about her mom though. She seems to be so unfeeling at times and selfish. She does add a bit of tension to the story which I found to be good. It is always interesting to read about family dynamics. Zoe, thankfully is nothing like her mother at all.This story in the series involves the elderly and I thought the story line was very realistic. We read in the paper or hear on the news about break ins where the victims are elderly people with no way to defend themselves. Zoe is very concerned because the people who are getting robbed are her friends. One of the robberies ends in a tragedy that sets off a series of almost hysteria in the small town. Is anyone safe from the burglars? Why would someone target the elderly? The author gives readers a story that goes from burglary to murder and reaches a heightened sense of danger. I love reading books by the author because she writes with accuracy and true to life stories. I love that she can make a story jump off the pages and keep you guessing to the end. I was so sure I had figured out what was going on, but I was way off base. That's the beauty of a well written story with twists that convince you that a certain person is guilty. I was quite intrigued by the news reporter in the story. She is one sneaky and crafty woman. I didn't trust her at all. She had this way of always knowing what was going on before others did. Where was she getting her information? Could she somehow be involved in the crimes going on? The tension between her and Zoe is very evident and I felt chills every time they came in contact. Once again Pete has his hands full trying to keep Zoe from investigating what is going on. He is such a good man and I love the patience he has with Zoe. Will Zoe find herself in danger as she stubbornly continue to help investigate the rash of burglaries? Can Pete and his officers solve the crime before more elderly people are robbed or hurt? It's a race against the clock as the story reaches an unexpected turn of events. This one is a real page turner and unexpected surprises that ends with a bang. I received a copy of this book from The Great Escapes Book Tours. The review is my own opinion.

    Yet another great installment to the Zoe Chambers series. Zoe and Pete are back and are investigating a string of robberies against senior citizens in the area. When the robbers start to target people near and dear to Zoe and Pete they'll stop at nothing to catch the robbers.This definitely kept me interested from start to end. Zoe once again throws herself into danger quite recklessly but that is just what she does. There is a murder in this book and I felt like it was quite easy to figure out who did it.I always look forward to reading about Zoe and Pete and I can't wait to read more of this series. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.
