Distortion by Terri Backstock

This is the second in The Moonlighter series and if you have not read the first one, Truth Stained Lies, you will miss out in the significance of some of the characters and events.

When Juliet Cole's husband is murdered right before her eyes, she is certain it was a random shooting. After police questioning, she returns home to tell their boys. A threatening voicemail gives the death a new level of meaning.

Juliet finds out the nightmare is just beginning. Before long she finds out her husband of fifteen years was not who she thought he was. Their marriage had been a lie. Her husband had a secret life that has put Juliet and her boys in danger.

This is another pretty good novel from Blackstock. There is plenty of action and suspense. The novel does drag a bit in places but it kept my interest throughout. This same family has had several murders now and that does seem a little unrealistic. Some of her family members who are helping her (part of the private detective agency) made a few obvious mistakes. It heightened the suspense but I don't like it when the suspense happens that way. I did like Juliet, a tough woman who was able to keep her wits about her when her world was falling apart.

Overall, a pretty good suspenseful book.
