Review: Revenge Served Cold by Jackie Fullerton

Revenge Served Cold

After a drink with an old college buddy, Elliot Spence is run down and killed by a hit-and-run driver. His wife Kathy is framed for the murder but since she was drunk and passed out at home alone the cops don't believe her. Now it's up to law student Anne Marshall and her father's ghost to help clear Kathy's name. That is if they can do it before Anne herself is murdered.

Revenge Served Cold has a really great premise but the writing just doesn't live up to the mystery. The story is really not believable especially when it comes to the cops. Yes all the evidence does point to Kathy but that's no reason to conveniently forget to canvas the neighborhood which of course leads them to miss the real murderer's visit to take Kathy's car and kill Elliot. OKAY?? .... And there's plenty more unbelievable situations which forces me to give this one two stars when it had so much promise.
