Angels Burning by Tawni O'Dell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thank you to NetGalley and Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books for providing an advance copy of Angels Burning by Tawni O’Dell. I love mysteries and O’Dell did not disappoint with this taut detective story involving chief of police Dove Carnahan investigating the grisly murder of a teen whose body was burned, wrapped in a blanket, and discovered in a sink hole. I could not put down this tense thriller delving into Dove’s dysfunctional family past and the parallel story of the murdered teen, Camio Truly’s vicious, ornery, redneck family filled with hostility, contempt and lies . Dove is one tough cookie in a world dominated by males in the police force and state police but she is harboring a big secret from her past. Dove’s sister, a loner who is a prominent dog whisperer, was a strong very likable character who fiercely loves her sister and does not suffer recriminations like those plaguing Dove. This is a riveting, mesmerizing psychological thriller and will keep mystery lovers turning the pages; highly recommended!
