Series: Mia Quinn Mystery
What happens when a prosecutor of violent criminals discovers her work has followed her home?
When a twenty-two-year-old killer walks into the courtroom, his eyes confirm what Mia Quinn already guesses: he blames her for his conviction. In seconds, he knocks her to the ground and holds a razor blade to her throat. She manages to escape, but its just one more reminder that Mias job prosecuting Seattles most dangerous criminals is risky.
Now Detective Charlie Carlson is suggesting the very thing Mia doesnt want to believethat her accountant husbands deadly car accident was no accident at all. When Mia and Charlie encounter resistance to reopening the case, they take the investigation into their own hands. And find much more than they bargained for.
Was Mias husband more than an accountantand less than an honest man? As the truth becomes more shocking and the case grows more complex, her husbands enemies take note of Miaand her children. How far will this prosecutor go to learn the truth, and how far will she have to go to protect her family?

A Deadly Business is the second installment in the Mia Quinn Series. I couldn't put it down! The plot is fast moving and kept me up reading late into the night! With twists and turns, Lis Wiehl will keep you guessing until the very end.
It was nice catching up with Mia, Charlie, Eli, and Mia's children. As Mia struggles to find ground in her newly single life, shocking revelations about her past knock the ground out from under her. Charlie and Eli would love to pick up the pieces, but Mia's not ready yet. I'll be interested to see what comes from that "love triangle"!
Mia is struggling to find her faith in this new reality she's been thrust into and she's finding it hard to trust. The aspect of the Christian faith was there, lurking in the background of Mia's choices and decisions, but I don't think she's come to terms with it yet.
Overall, I was highly satisfied with this book and I can't wait to read the next one as the Mia story continues!

From the inside jacket flap: A prosecutor of violent criminals. A detective on a dangerous beat. When these two pros take on an off-the-books case, the line between professional and personal becomes perilously blurred.
When a twenty-two-year-old convict walks into the courtroom, his eyes confirm what Mia Quinn already guesses: he blames her for his conviction. In seconds, he knocks her to the ground and holds a razor blade to her throat. While she manages to escape without injury, its just one more reminder that Mias job prosecuting Seattles s most dangerous criminals is far from low risk.
As a single mom, the last thing Mia wants is for her work to follow her home or discover that it already has.
Now Detective Charlie Carlson is suggesting the very thing Mia doesnt want to believethat her accountant husbands deadly car accident was no accident at all. When Mia and Charlie encounter resistance to reopening the case, they take the investigation into their own hands. And they find much more than they bargained for.
Was Mias husband more than an accountant . . . and less than an honest man? As the truth becomes more shocking and the case grows more complex, her husbands killers take note of Mia . . . and her children. How far will this prosecutor go to learn the truth about her husbandand how far will she have to go to protect her family?
It begins with an attack on Mia in the courtroom and then the story escalates from there. Mia is then given this case of three teens that did a horrible act and she has to decide whether to try them as adults or not. Also Charlie feels that Mias husband may actually have been murdered. Two investigations for the price of one! I needed Mia and Charlie to figure out the outcome of both investigations because I sure couldnt. A Deadly Business is an excellent murder mystery filled with marvelous characters, great plot twists, suspense and thrills. This is an exciting book, extremely well paced and suspenseful. I am enjoying this series and look forward to the next book.
