Lost Hills (Eve Ronin)
Lee Goldberg has graced us with yet another masterfully-written detective series. In Lost Hills, the first book of the Eve Ronin series, we follow this heroine as she ventures to solve her first case after being promoted to the homicide division. Ronin has a reputation preceding herself thanks to a YouTube video that gained much popularity. Now in her new role, she must work with her partner to solve a murder that has left a house looking like blood should be the pattern for the wallpaper and carpet, with a mother and two children as potential victims. With each new clue to the case, Ronin is discovering parallels from the single mother’s life to her own life with a single mother, all of which are not pleasant to deal with. Ronin must resolve with her own personal issues if she can hope to solve this complicated murder.
Goldberg has completed another realistic detective novel that makes the reader feel as if they are working alongside Ronin and witnessing her kick-butt attitude toward everything in life. I had read Goldberg’s Ian Ludlow series, so I was excited to start his newest one – and he did not disappoint. The story gets straight to the point and allows nothing to get in its way as you sit tight for the ride.
