AJ Rivers writes stories with great characters and convoluted story lines that will often have me holding on to my seat. Every AJ novel I have read has become a marathon session and I would not put down the book until I had read the last page.
Emma Griffin one of my best crime fiction author is a badass special agent that uses her gut instincts to resolve some challenging cases.
I like the fact that she grows over the course of the series as she extends her horizons and deals with more of the wounds of childhood.
Even though it can be tricky writing a series centered on a single character, Rivers not only pulls it off but does a phenomenal job. At no point does Emma become boring and instead she gets even more interesting that I could not help rooting for her.
A.J. Rivers writes excellent mysteries. Granted, she is not unique in that arena. However, most of my favorite suspense thriller authors write novels with intriguing characters. In some cases, the characters are a bigger attraction than the mysteries.
After reading three Emma Griffin books, I can’t say that I like Emma. I don’t hate her or anything. However, as far as protagonists go, I don’t think I’ll remember her a year from now.
But that doesn’t matter because Rivers creates solid mysteries. She hasn’t yet disappointed me in that area. Her stories are highly suspenseful. She throws plenty of suspects into the mix, making it difficult, but not impossible, to solve the mystery and find the killer before she reveals his identity.
