Beth Anderson for Rendezvous Review Kate Warren, watching from her home, sees her young daughter get off the school bus, turns away for just a minute or so, and her daughter disappears. A few hours later the eight year old's body is found in a nearby wooded area, and the worst nightmare imaginable begins for Kate and Richard as Richard is immediately fingered as primary suspect by police, who are not really interested in looking at anyone else. Then, little by little, due to Richard's strange behavior, Kate begins to suspect him herself. This is just the beginning of an intricate and suspenseful novel of the worst kind of betrayal you can imagine. Powers has instilled just a touch of the child's own story without pummeling us with the sad details of her murder, instead concentrating on the chase and capture of the killer. I think it's safe to say that every reader of DEATH ANGEL will cheer out loud, as I did, when the killer is revealed, and more than that, how the killer receives full justice, if there is such a thing for a sexual predator who rapes and kills children. A dark, suspenseful novel, full of wrong deductive turns for the reader, huge surprises all the way through, and beautifully crafted justice at the end.About the Author:
