Book Review: Death in the City by Riley McKissack

Death in the City by Riley McKissack

Book 1 of Blue Lights series

Release Date: Aug. 14, 2106

164 pages

Romantic Suspense



Death in the City is book one of a new series, Blue Lights. Always a good read with a Riley McKissack book. I enjoy her suspenseful storytelling. Quite a few suspects and I didn’t guess the villain until he was revealed. Riley writes heroines that are strong characters and are not content to sit back and let the hero take care of things. Riley has background experience of covering stories involving cops and bad guys and it shows as she writes these storylines. She writes with a different perspective than some other “cop” storylines I have read because she’s been there first hand. Looking forward to book 2 in this series.


Atlanta is in the grips of a crime wave.

Seemingly random people are targeted, but are they part of an orchestrated pattern?

As an assistant district attorney in Atlanta, Lainey Thomas has made her share of enemies.

Is she a target? When her sister goes missing, is she just another victim, or was she taken because of her connection to Lainey?

Evil stalks the streets of Atlanta.

Will Lainey Thomas and Homicide Detective Mark Brice find out who is behind the murders, and kidnapping of young girls before Lainey or her sister are the next victims?

Book Link:



Riley McKissack has worked for many years as a journalist. Cornered gunmen, cop killers, a bomb going off in a domestic terrorism incident, Riley has covered it all. Riley has spent years chasing stories involving every type of bad guy and cop imaginable, including FBI, Homeland Security, homicide detectives and arson investigators. Riley sponged up the drama, tension and danger on SWAT operations, hostage negotiations, drug busts and countless other dangerous situations.

That passion and drama spills out onto the pages of Riley’s novels, along with the personal stories behind the men and women who stand between danger and the people they love.
