The Competition – A Rachel Knight Novel is an entertaining summer read that kept me on my toes. In the wake of a school shooting Knight and Keller join together to solve the how’s and why’s of this tragic crime. I personally love mysteries that feature a female heroine and The Competition features two clever, resourceful and witty women. A lead detective and a prosecutor, this team knows how to solve crimes and insure that criminals won’t get off on a technicality. The criminals are well developed and researched, making the crimes believable, and the villains truly hideous. Full of suspense, twists, turns and a little bit of romance, this quick read will not disappoint.
