UNHOLY HUNGER by Heather James

270 pages
Lure of the Serpent Book I
Kregel Publications

Evelyn Barrett is a successful lawyer, a wife and mother.  Then her young daughter disappears, and her world is turned upside down, when they find her body.  All she wants to do is find the man who killed her daughter, and after he dies, die too.  And she goes after who she thinks is her daughter's killer, and when she wakes beside his body, he has a stench, the smell of a pedophile.  But, the police tell her she got the wrong man, and arrest her.

You've had books you couldn't put down?  This is one that I didn't even want to turn loose, until I read the last pages.  It does have a bit of a surprise ending, and when I found who the murderer really was, I was shocked.  It is a real page turner, and it is also Heather James first novel.  

I'd give this book 5+ stars.

That sounds like a great book-I love those page turners but like Diana I get less done than I should also.
I'll put that one on my must read list.
