Book Review: Above Suspicion by Joe Sharkey

above-suspicion

Above Suspicion is about the murder of Susan Daniels Smith by former FBI agent Mark Putnam. It was a really good book, very well written with well defined characters and a good storyline. It was very detailed and researched well. It was fair to both the victim and the killer. The victim was not overlooked. I will read any book written by this author. He is a great author, taking care to write the story well.

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley for an honest review.

Here is my post about the murder of Susan Daniels Smith: Movies Based On True Crimes: Betrayed By Love [Murder of Susan Daniels Smith]
