2015 book 48

Elizabeth Haynes' Behind Closed Doors
The second book in Haynes' series on British police detective Louisa Smith (after Under a Silent Moon) is pretty gripping stuff. Ten years ago, a British girl was kidnapped while on vacation with her family--a victim of sex trafficking. Now she's been found--in the middle of a police investigation into the local drug trade/various other criminal stuff. Lou worked the case ten years ago, and is one of the officers in charge of the current investigation, but pretty soon things are getting complicated. This was not as grim as it could have been, given the subject matter, and I really appreciate Haynes' emphasis on the importance of good police work. This is a series I really enjoy, highly recommended for mystery lovers. A-/B+.

 A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in March.
