He thought he was investigating money laundering, but the case is far more menacing. It’s murder…

Detective Sam Chastain has been dreading his next case: he must investigate his father-in-law’s role in a federal money-laundering scheme. When a grisly murder reframes the case, he must find answers before he loses another witness.

At the same time, new evidence sheds light on the decades-old drowning death of Cici’s uncle. She’s one of the few tenuous threads that connects the two murders. And a brand-new one.

As Sam and Cici race to uncover the identity of the latest victim, they realize the killer never leaves loose ends… Like Cici.

A Counsel for Death is the sixth book in the multi-award-winning Rev. Cici Gurule Mystery series. Buckle in for a thrill ride full of twists and page-turning action.

My Review:

Sam is enjoying spending time with his new wife, Cici but all good things must come to an end so to speak as Sam is called back to work on a case that he wants no part of. Sam is assigned the case because his ex insisted that he be put on the case leaving the department no choice but to agree to her commands I am assuming.

Cici would like to go along with Sam and Jeanette for a number of reasons, one, it is her father they are investigating, two, she is a little bit jealous of his ex. Cici is very suspicious, her reason for questioning it is that Jeanette insisted on being partnered with Sam.

Sam thought his new case was only investigating money laundering but boy was he wrong it was murder. While he is investigating the murder he finds evidence for a decades-old case that connects the two murders. Who is the murderer? Did the same person commit both murders? If not how do the two cases connect? If it is the same killer who is it and why were did they commit murders?

A Counsel of Death takes off on several different paths leaving clues at every turn, pulling you in deeper and deeper with each twist and turn that keeps the pages turning as each clue brings you closer and closer to the end, revealing its secrets slowly, leaving lots and lots of suspense hot on its trail.

Each book in the Reverend Cici Gurule Mysteries just keeps getting better and better with each word. Each book is chocked full of suspense and mystery with lots of action on almost every page.

I would recommend each and every book in the Reverend Cici Gurule Mysteries so go grab your copy of each book for a thrilling ride full of murder, mystery, and death with a touch of the paranormal.
