A great debut novel from author, Jordyn Redwood! I was first introduced to Jordyn Redwood through her second novel in the Bloodline Trilogy, POISON. It was so captivating, I knew I wanted to go back and read PROOF. I was not disappointed.
Dr. Lilly Reeves, an ER doctor, loses a rape victim in her ER to suicide then ends up becoming a victim herself. Life as she knows it turns upside down when she discovers who her attacker is but DNA evidence clears him of the crime. Not understanding how it is science is not backing up what she knows to be true, she sets out to prove the man is not only her attacker, but a serial rapist. She starts out as the hunter, but soon becomes the hunted. When people she’s questioned and those close to her befall tragic accidents, she knows her attacker is a cold-blooded killer that will not stop until she is silenced. Everyone has written her off as unstable and dangerous. That is, all but Detective Nathan Long.
Detective Long’s first encounter with Dr. Lilly Reeves is anything but pleasant. He invades her ER, wanting information about a patient and immediately gets on Lilly’s bad side. When it’s clear to Lilly a serial rapist is on the loose, she accuses Nathan from withholding information from the public. When Lilly becomes one of the rapist’s victims, Nathan becomes her strongest advocate. The only problem is, she continues to blame a suspect that has already been cleared by DNA evidence. But somehow, even though the evidence is stacked against Lilly, Nathan feels she is right. But proving it is going to be more than difficult, it’s going to be deadly.
There is only so much I can write without spoiling the many layers that unfold. Just trust me when I say, PROOF is a mind-bending, fast-paced, thriller. The romance is a little bit light, but fitting to the plot. I have found a new, favorite author.
