Book Review of 'Fatal Destiny' by David DeLee

Fatal Destiny was written by David DeLee and published by Dark Road Publishing in 2011. You may purchase it at

Bounty hunter and former cop, Grace deHaviland is on the hunt for a white collar crime bail jumper--looking for an easy, better than good, pay day. What she finds is a man that is tied up in a history of much worse ruthless crimes than she bargained for. Her best friend and police officer Susie Jensen is caught up in the violence of Grace's case and lands in the hospital fighting for her life. Soon Grace is faced with decisions that will challenge her professionalism--and her personal relationships with everyone around her could come to a screeching halt. She's forced to look at her bail jumper, and the man who put her best friend in the hospital, in a different light.
David DeLee's background in the criminal justice field (Masters Degree) and his experience as a private investigator gave him the tools he needed to create the taut and dangerous, true to life world of crime and intrigue that Grace deHaviland and Susie Jensen find themselves living in. To make that type of world and the characters who are a part of it come vibrantly and excitingly alive takes the skill, imagination and dedication of a very good writer. Mr. DeLee has proven that he can compete with the best of them in the crime thriller genre.
Fatal Destiny will challenge the best of the armchair crime fighters. You'll be put into the heads of a cop and a bounty hunter. And just when you are sure you would know what to do in responding to a crime--a gut wrenching twist in circumstances will cause you to rethink your approach. At the end of Fatal Destiny you might gain a new respect and understanding of all the characters that make up the world of crime--the good and the bad.
Fatal Destiny is just one story in the Grace deHaviland series, but it certainly won't be the last of David DeLee's books that I will read.
I give it a 5 spider rating.
