Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Breaking The Spine. This is my anticipated book of the week!
A brutal murder, a suspect in jail, and an execution planned, but what if the wrong person is about to be killed?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When a fellow U.S. Marshal asks Anita Blake to fly to a tiny community in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula on an emergency consult, she knows time is running short. When she arrives, there is plenty of proof that a young wereleopard killed his uncle in the most gruesome and bloody way possible. As the mounting evidence points to him, a warrant of execution is already under way.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But something seems off about the murder, and Anita has been asked for her expert opinion on the crime scene. Despite the escalating pressure from local cops and the family’s cries for justice for their dead patriarch, Anita quickly realizes that the evidence doesn’t quite add up.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Time is against Anita, as the tight-knit community is up in arms and fear against supernaturals is growing. She races to uncover the truth and determine whether the Marshals have caught the killer or are about to execute an innocent man—all in the name of justice.
Sucker Punch is the 27th book in the Anita Blake series. Yes, that is a high number. Yes, the stories attraction has kind of waned some. But I am determined to stick with Anita until the series ends.
Sucker Punch sounds like it has a good detective and mystery component which I’m hoping takes precedence over any of the other aspects of Anita’s life that have just become redundant. I am really hoping I’m not going to be disappointed. The Anita Blake series is another one I collect in hard cover, I hope it is worth it. Release date is August 4, 2020. Don’t give up on Anita yet, I think she has plenty of stories left for us!
