#BookReview: Why She Ran (Detective Iris Locke #2) by Geraldine Hogan

Synopsis: Yesterday they were a family like any other… 

Twenty-year-old Rachel McDermott was your typical girl-next-door. She loved her job as a nurse, was close to her family in the small Irish town of Corbally and seemed to have no enemies. So when she is brutally murdered, the local community reels in horror and Detective Iris Locke is put on the case. 

The main suspect is her close friend, sixteen-year-old Eleanor Marshall, a tearaway teenager with addiction problems whose parents have long since turned their backs on her. Eleanor was last seen fleeing the scene where Rachel’s body was found and is now missing in the woods near the Comeragh mountains. 

Eleanor’s sister Karena insists Eleanor wouldn’t have hurt her best friend, but a day later, when Karena is found dead in the area Eleanor is hiding, Iris knows things don’t look good for the runaway teen. She doesn’t want to believe that Eleanor is her sister’s killer, but all the evidence seems to point that way. 

But Iris can’t let go of the elements of the case she doesn’t have answers for. The fact that Rachel’s father died in suspicious circumstances. The strange company that Rachel was keeping the night before she died. Was it guilt or fear that made Eleanor run? And can Iris find her before it is too late? 

This gripping mystery thriller is perfect for fans of Carol Wyer, Robert Dugoni and LJ Ross. 


Rating: ★★★★
My Review: This slow burning book two thriller was amazing!! I didn't read book one but I will be doing that soon because this one was just so good.  The pacing worked well and the characters were fabulous.  The author did a great job bringing the story to life.  There were a few times that I felt kind of confused but overall it was really engaging and very well done.  I couldn't put it down and I need to read the first book now to.
