The Binding Room: A Novel by Nadine Matheson


(Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book!)

about book:

Detective Anjelica Henley confronts a series of ritualistic murders in this heart-pounding thriller about race, power and the corrupt institutions that threaten us for fans of S.A. Crosby and Tami Hoag

When Detective Anjelica Henley is called to investigate the murder of popular preacher in his own church, she discovers a second victim, tortured and tied to a bed in an upstairs room. He is alive, but barely, and his body show signs of a dark religious ritual.

With a revolving list of suspects and the media spotlight firmly on her, Henley is left with more questions than answers as she attempts to untangle both crimes. But when another body appears, the case takes on a new urgency. Unless she can apprehend the killer, the next victim may just be Henley herself.

Drawing on her experiences as a criminal attorney, Nadine Matheson's new novel deftly explores issues of race, class and justice through an action-packed story that will hold you captive until the last terrifying page.

my thoughts:

Wow! What thrilling read! The Binding Room by Nadine Matheson is a police procedural mystery at its very best! Talk about a thrilling and gripping story - oh, my!

Detective Angelica Henley is working harder than ever to solve the latest murder - a popular preacher in his own church! Say what?! Yep, talk about sacrilege! Oh, and another body is discovered in the church - a man who has been tortured and bound in an upstairs room. Looks, like Angelica has a dark and sadistic suspect on the loose and she is going to have to use all of her resources to find the murderer ASAP! Especially, since another body pops up - yikes! 

Matheson has written a suspenseful mystery that will have you turning pages faster and faster - eager to find out whodunit and why. You won't be able to put this book down for anything. I just loved getting lost in the story and trying to suss out who did what and who's lying - talk about a terrific thriller!

I would happily recommend The Binding Room to anyone and everyone looking for their next great read - check it out!
