Every Breath You Take, by M.K. Gilroy

Worthy Publishing

 Kristen Conner is one of the youngest detectives on the Chicago police force, and just recently returned to duty after recuperating from injuries sustained while taking down a serial killer. When a high profile murder occurs the same day she returns to the force, she steps up to the plate. Even when her duty includes her going undercover as a high priced cake girl, Kristen works the murder investigation.

This is the second M.K. Gilroy/ Kristen Conner novel that I have read and enjoyed. Kristen is a complicated character, who second guesses her actions on the job and with her family, but not enough to change her ways. In this novel, she picks up a long distance FBI love interest that broadens the storyline. Kristen and her family are Christians, and they live their faith, though Kristen stumbles enough that she definitely feels human, and her efforts to grow are enjoyable. The murder mystery keeps you guessing until almost the very end, with great descriptions of fight scenes that keep the action hopping. I stayed so involved that I lost a little sleep when I did not read the end during my normal hours. I recommend this to readers who enjoy clean detective mysteries with lots of secondary storylines that add interest.
