    Police Procedural - Serial Murder Mystery

    Ten Days Gone by Beverly Long A.L. McKittridge #1 Detectives McKittridge and Morgan have developed a partnership that allows them to tackle the most recent murder case that comes there way and they do so in a very professional manner. They know that another woman’s life is at stake and that they must find the serial killer within the ten days or another woman will lose her life. What I liked: * McKittridge: knowledgeable, fit, intelligent, experienced policeman with a dream for his future that does not include the politics of moving up to a higher position * Morgan: smart, loves her job and does it well, works well with McKittridge and has a dream for the future. * Getting to see McKittridge and Morgan as people outside of their job and seeing that they are people with human problems to contend with * Following the clues * Glimpses of the power structure within the police department * All of it except… What I did not like: * The whack-job that was unearthed as the killer – but then – I was supposed to not like that person, was I? Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more in this series? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin-Mira for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars

    thriller and a romance too

    Ten Days Gone, by Beverly Long, will be available in booksellers on 2-18-2020. Ten is book 1 in Ms Long's new A.L. McKittridge series. It's also the first of Ms Long's books I've read, her work is new to me. I must say, I'm impressed. I really, truly, liked the story and the characters. Well, almost all the characters. Rena, A.L's partner didn't sit well with me. She's a great detective but not so great in the real world. Just my initial impression, she may grow on me in book 2. The plot works and I did figure out who the killer was but not too early. When they begin to suspect the perp I knew they were on the right trail, it fit the clues. The best part of this murder mystery, for me, is the romance between A.L and Tess. She's the intended next victim & there's an attraction between these two that's intriguing. I hope she sticks around for book 2. I'm torn about the ending. It's good, no doubt about it, but I kind of wanted an epilog. That's why I hope Tess & A.L. are ok in the next story. I want to see where they go. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. #Netgalley #BeverlyLord #TenDaysGone #A.L.McKittridge #MIRA #HarlequinDigitalSales

    A new mystery series!

    Ten Days Gone by Beverly Long is the first An A.L. McKittridge Novel. Ten Days Gone is a police procedural mystery set in Baywood, Wisconsin. We follow Detective A.L. McKittridge (we do not get to find out what A.L. stands for) and Detective Rena Morgan as they search for a deadly killer. Four women have been murdered in forty days. They were murdered ten days apart with them just discovering the latest victim. Our duo has ten days to find the killer before he strikes again. The killer is smart enough to leave to no forensics. They cannot find a connection between the four women. The detectives work on questioning the latest victims’ husband, co-workers and friends to see if they can find any connection to the other three victims. The point-of-view switches between McKittridge and Morgan. McKittridge is divorced with a sixteen year old daughter who is acting out (dating a man who is over twenty-one) and skipping school to drink alcohol. Rena Morgan is wed, and they have been trying to conceive for years unsuccessfully. It is taking its toll on their marriage. Rena is worried that her husband is cheating on her. The detectives’ personal lives are woven in with the investigation. I thought the detective’s lives are realistic. They work hard which affects their personal lives which are complicated (just like real people). The mystery was representative of a real police case. Television makes police work look exciting, but, in real life, it is tedious. They must ask questions, follow up leads, fill out paperwork and deal with bureaucracy (like a new pompous chief). Identifying the guilty party was effortless. There is suspense and tension especially as they were getting close to their prey. There were some areas of the book that lagged, and I was put off by the amount of foul language (I do not understand why people feel they need to use such offensive words). Ten Days Gone will appeal to readers who enjoy suspenseful police procedural mysteries. Ten Days gone has a mysterious murderer, a conceited chief, disconsolate target, and two determined detectives.
