We meet Dr Jessie Teska on a construction site where a well known architect has died a gruesome death. She quickly figures out that the death is murder rather than an accident it appears to be. But before we can get too caught up in working out who the killer is, an earthquake hits the city and the story takes a new direction. Between Jessie dealing with the emergency of the quake and its aftermath and boyfriend trouble, I nearly forgot about the dead architect.
I confess I guessed early on who the killer was but I had no idea how or why. This wasn’t an issue for me because Aftershock kept me engaged and I enjoyed having the questions of the how and whys answered while at the same time dealing with Jessie’s hectic life.
It was fun to be back with Dr Jessie Teska. She is stubborn, single minded and doesn’t always make the smart decision. It is great to have an imperfect heroine. Another great thing about Aftershock is the diversity of the characters. The people in Jessie’s life come from all different walks of life and it added interest and helped make the story feel more genuine.
Aftershock is another good mystery in the Jessie Teska series and it isn’t essential to have read the previous book to read this one. I look forward to more of Jessie’s adventures and to seeing where her personal life goes. If you enjoy a good mystery, Aftershock is worth a read.
