Summary (from GoodReads):
Fourteen years ago, high school track star Sydney Adams was gunned down in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park. The investigation yielded useless clues, and the case went cold. But homicide detective Augustus Knox never gave up on finding Sydney’s killer. Now, retired from the police force and with only months to live, he enlists the help of private investigator Jocelyn Rush to clear the case once and for all.
Armed with little more than a theory as to who murdered Sydney, Jocelyn tries to lure a killer into the open. But unraveling the mystery means facing-off against a cunning psychopath whose ruthlessness knows no bounds. When more bodies start to pile up, Jocelyn has to decide just how far she’s willing to go to catch a cold-blooded killer.
Fourteen years after the murder of senior student and track star Sydney Adams’ murder, the disgraced (and alcoholic) detective who was responsible for the investigation haven’t given up on proving Sydney’s tracking couch was the person responsible.
With new evidence in hand, he hires Jocelyn Rush – a former police detective, now private investigator – to solve the mystery once and for all. He only has a few months to live and he’d like to see the case closed and justice being served.
This book started slow and a little bit different – we supposedly know who the killer is but nobody was able to prove it.
The story takes a while to find its rhythm, but once it does, it’s a fun, exciting ride.
The characters – Jocelyn, her friend and business associate, her friends from the force, her boyfriend – they are all interesting and enjoyable, adding charm and warmth to the story.
This was a great read and I look forward to read more from the author.
I’d like to thank NetGalley author Lisa Regan for providing me an ARC of Cold-Blooded in exchange for an honest review.

OT note: My vacation is sadly over and I’m back at the office, which means I’ll have less time to read *sad face*. I’ll try to update here as often as I can. Hugs!
