Roundtable Reviews features little more than book reviews and book news. We don't just stick to one genre. We have varying tastes and may be after a heartwarming romance one day, a new adult novel the next, and a creepy horror the day after that. Our book reviews always take one thought into consideration -- Would I pay the asking price for this book?

It was a sad story but not
that uncommon. A drug addicted prostitute was found dead in a squalid
house, murdered by an unknown assailant. What makes the case a bit
more interesting is that the platinum credit card of a very wealthy
man is found at the crime scene.
Although he’s also
been dead for a while, the authorities want to know what the tycoon’s
connection with this woman was. Taken on face value, did she receive
or take the card for services rendered or is there more to the story?
It is up to rookie
Welsh Detective Constable Fiona Griffiths to delve into this mystery
and find an answer. Over-intense and intuitive, Fiona has earned a
reputation as being a bit odd at police headquarters in Cardiff,
Wales, but, no matter, she is intent in learning all she can about
the victim and her young daughter who was also found dead at the
scene of the crime.
Before she is
finished, Fiona will uncover secrets about this community that might
be better left buried and her own past will be open to public
This marks Harry
Bingham’s American debut and his protagonist for this captivating
series will certainly find a comfortable place among the legions of
U.S. mystery fans who can’t get enough British whodunits.
