"Deadly Web" A Glenmore Park Mystery by Mike Omer

"But the best -laid plans of mice and men oft go astray. Sometimes, they go astray because of an anonymous phone call. In this case, it was a phone call reporting a murder, A woman named Dona Aliya had been strangled to death. Just like that, Jacob and Mitchell were snatched from Frank Gulliepe's case, and thrown unceremoniously into a completely different murder case."....

Detectives Hannah Shor and Jacob Cooper each have a murder to solve.  Hannah feels she has to prove herself after a previous mistake. Her case isn't necessarily one she cares if it's solved or not. Jacob on the other hand, is going to have to extend himself to solve the one he gets. His victim, Dona, was involved in an online game that may have led to her death. Jacob isn't exactly computer savvy so this case is going to be a challenge. 

This is the 2nd book in the police procedural novel called the "Glenmore Park Mystery." In the first book we read about Detective Mitchell Lonnie and his cop sister, Tanessa. In this one Mitchell steps in to help Jacob when he catches that other murder case. His sister Tanessa is also part of this book, in a minor role. 

Can they solve either case? Is the victim, Frank, in the first case going to get justice? Not everyone thinks he deserves it.  Can Hannah fix her previous mistake, or is she being too hard on herself? I liked seeing more of the other cop characters this time around. while still keeping the ones from the first book. It expanded your view of the "Glenmore Park Police Dept."

Characters that I enjoy reading about and an interesting story, just as good as the first one. Comfortable read. Some exciting moments, and a great ending. Oh the future possibilities! Looking forward to more in this cop series.

Thank you Mike Omer
