Dr. Lauren Crawford is a brilliant research scientist who discovers a revolutionary treatment for cancer that not only extends life, but much improves the quality of life for terminal cancer patients. The treatment, in some instances, can even cure certain cancers. On the evening before Dr. Crawford holds a press conference to announce that the FDA has given preliminary approval of her new cancer treatment, somebody follows her to her car and puts three bullets in her head. Was it a planned murder with a motive, a mugging gone badly, or merely a random act of violence? 

Two New York City homicide detectives, Amaris Dupree and T.J. Brown, are assigned to the investigation. The detectives evaluate the circumstances surrounding Dr. Crawford’s death, and follow a trail of clues that exposes a sequence of startling facts. One by one, the detectives carefully examine each suspect and piece together a puzzle with unimaginable implications. As the investigation gets more intense, and the detectives get closer to solving the murder mystery, someone threatens Dupree’s life. The detectives now realize that Dr. Crawford’s murder was much more than a homicide. And if they don’t arrest the murderer soon, Dupree might be the next victim.

My Take on this Journey

Hypocrisy, by D.M. Annechino, was an amazing page turner from beginning to end. The story line is interesting and much too close for comfort.  With all the contradictions in the world we live in today, this could be a viable concept.  As a people, us not knowing what is in our water, food, and air; leave a person reeling with the thought of someone having a cure for cancer.  Even more scary, the withholding of a cure by the government and or the pharmaceutical industry, hiding it for the billions of dollars in revenue, that could line their pockets would be unfathomable.

Amaris Dupree and her partner, T.J. Brown are diligent detectives in the search for a killer.  As they get closer and closer to the reality of why Dr. Crawford, a top knotch scientist, has been brutally murdered, execution style, they start to question people, one after the other, as they each become a possible suspect.

This story was a roller coaster ride like you wouldn't believe.  Mr. Annechino could definitely be classified up there with some of the best thriller Authors in my book, James Patterson and Patricia Cornwell.

I loved the strong characters, the banter, the puzzle as it came together.  The exciting manner in which Mr. Annechino writes, has the reader on the edge of their seat, fearing for their lives, and looking over their shoulder at every turn.

This was a complicated story, filled with excellent motives and concepts.  The author did a phenomenal job of keeping the reader at bay, and just letting out enough information to keep them wanting more.

The characters were all well rounded, the forensics was excellent, the crescendo of the novel was amazing.  I thoroughly enjoyed this novel from the first sentence.  I look forward to reading much more by Mr. Annechino in the future, as this book has got me hooked!
