    Mark Gilleo’s Terminal Secret is the second in what may well become a successful series involving the exploits of Dan Lord a private investigator who is also an attorney He’s based in Washington DC and in this story teams up with two detectives Earl Wallace and Emily Fields of the Washington Metropolitan Police Not far into the story an attorney is murdered on her doorstep in a wealthy DC enclave Nothing so unusual about that per se but a visit to Dr Lewis Medical Examiner changes all that Meanwhile Dan is hired by a congressman’s wife Sherry Wellington who fears for her safety Dan’s brief is to find Sherry’s ex’s killer but the woman is hiding something — secrets from her past — and if Dan is going to help her he needs to know what they are As Dan embarks on his investigation Wallace and Fields get on with theirs Each step in both investigations reveals another puzzle the intrigue deepening with each twist and turn Even when Dan enlists the help of other police officers and an IT guru unravelling the mystery proves challenging even for our super sleuth When he eventually joins up the dots he can barely believe what he has unearthed I did wonder why a guy who was both a lawyer and a private investigator neither profession particularly enamoured by cops had no difficulty getting information and even co operation from so many law enforcers But I guess there are exceptions That aside Terminal Secret is chock full of intrigue from beginning to end The story is coherent the characters captivating and engaging the dialogue script like and realistic As the tale nears its denouement each page turn causes a sharp intake of breath Just when you think you’ve worked out what’s going on along comes another twist Author Mark Gilleo’s imagination and creativity shines through this riveting read Terminal Secret is both thriller and murder mystery and suspense rolled up into one delightful package

    A private investigator and Washington DC Detectives working seemingly disconnected murder cases come crashing together in an unexpected way in this new novel by Mark Gilleo Without giving away any of the entertaining details Gilleo perfectly merges the intricacies of the crime while constantly piuing the readers’ interests Admittedly this book included some obvious history between two of the main characters Dan and Wallace While this does not seem to be a seuel the history between the two is not thoroughly elaborated on within the pages of this book Despite this Terminal Secret provided an intensely entertaining read Any fans of police procedurals such as Harlan Coben and Michael Connelly that seek a light hearted read should definitely pick this one upFor the full review visit Disclaimer I received a copy of this book via Goodreads Giveaway in exchange for an honest review

    An excellent suspenseful novel that completely surprised me with the ending I loved this book and had a lot of trouble putting it down Great book Mark thank you Barry

  5. Kathleen Gray Kathleen Gray says:

    Well done WDC based procedural where secrets and lies are deadly than anyone could reasonably expect Gilleo has a knack with characters I was especially entertained by the interplay between Earl and Emily Some of the Dan Lord story line is a tad implausible but his relationship with the MPD officers is integral to the story Thanks to Edelweiss for the ARC Try this one for a different sort of Washington novel I'm looking forward to from Gilleo especially if it involves this trio

    Washington DC police Detective Earl Wallace and his new partner investigate the murder of an attorney and find their investigation taking numerous twists and turns wit no easy answers At the same time lawyerprivate investigator Dan Lord's new client doesn't seem to be telling him the truth and he has to try to figure out the whole story before he becomes a victim of a terminal secretThis story is fast paced and the characters are interesting The book also offers a glimpse into big city life and there is good description of DC layout and topography Through no fault of the author I had some difficulty finding commonality with the characters and the final outcome seemed too me to take too long to reach

    Brilliant and entertaining I have been starting books and stopping 2 or 3 chapters in for the last 2 years at least One unoriginal plot after another or so poorly written Finally a book that had characters I could care about and an intertwined story that kept me turning the pages into the night Glad the mystery was solved but sorry that meant reading the book was over Will be moving onto other books by the author
