Mercy Street

Mercy Street by Mariah Stewart

What was this book about?

Two teens are dead and two are missing. Did the missing teens kill the others? Where are they now and are they ok? Their family and friends are convinced that they are innocent but the fact that they are gone now – makes them look guilty.

Former police detective Mallory Russo is hired by one of the missing teen’s Priest to find out what happened (and save them). Mallory has a history of doing the right thing even if it means her losing her job and he believes that she can figure out what is going on. The police are shorthanded as it is and don’t have the time to dedicate to the case. New detective Charlie Wannamaker wants to help Mallory find the teens and bring whoever did this awful deed to justice.

What did you like/dislike about the book?

I enjoyed the story and mystery of the book. It isn’t one of those books that you will figure out what is going on and “solve” the case – but it is riveting.

I was slightly disappointed that the original “missing persons” were not found. But I am hoping that this book is just the first in a series of Charlie and Mallory books so that I can find resolution to all my questions..

What genre would you consider this?
