Cry Wolf by J Carson Black is book four of the Laura Cardinal Series. I read the novella as part of the Deadly Dozen: 12 Mysteries/Thrillers set.
Laura is a homicide cop with the Arizona Department of Public Safety. She is called to investigate the “guy in a car. Shot in the head” near the trailhead to Baldy in Madera Canyon.
The victim Sean Perrin is a pathological liar with a secret, which makes uncovering the truth difficult. Laura follows every lead, including talking with Cody, the son of the woman who runs the.Madera Canyon cabins where Sean was staying. I enjoyed how Laura follows the leads to unravel the mystery, and the ending was surprising.
I found her partner Anthony irritating with the way he constantly tries to frame the crime as a movie set. It just did not seem believable to. Other than that, I enjoyed the fast-past read and would love to read more of the Laura Cardinal Series.
