171. Dead of the Day by Karen E Olson

about the book

A soggy April has hit New Haven, Connecticut-along with an unidentified body in the harbor. The strange fact that there were bee stings on the floater gives New Haven Herald police reporter Annie Seymour an intriguing excuse to put off her profile of the new police chief-a piece that becomes a lot more interesting when the subject is gunned down.
But this is only the beginning of a killer exposŽ-because as she connects the dots between the John Doe, the police chief, and the city's struggling immigrant population, Annie's drawing a line between herself and someone who doesn't want her to learn the truth, or live to report it...

This was a very busy book and I loved it. I love Annie. I am so bummed that there is only 1 book left in the series. It is sitting here taunting me. I want to read it but I want the series to last and if I hold off on reading the last book then to me the series has not ended even though it really has.

I have a library book that I need to read first then I will have to decide when to read the last Annie

I'm thrilled you enjoyed DEAD OF THE DAY, and I think you'll really like SHOT GIRL. Yes, it's sadly the last in the series, but honestly, I'm not sure I could write about newspapers right now. Maybe she'll come back when newspapers come out of the hole they're in and figure out what they want to be.

I am now reading Shot Girl. I am enjoying it but find I keep reading slower to savor ever word.
