Silent Gavel (Crawford Mystery #1)Silent Gavel by Merissa Racine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is something to be said about an author who can make a necessary yet often overlooked court stenographer job and turn it interesting. This was a homerun by the author as an intriguing whodunnit with more twists and turns than a rollercoaster.
We start out meeting Lauren Besoner an extremely likeable and relatable character who finds herself in a bit of a jam after finding Judge Murphy’s body. Once again thrust into drama that she has tried to avoid since divorcing her ex-Tony. She now finds herself the primary suspect in the middle of the murder investigation by detective Sam Overstreet and his boss chief of police Ray Newell. She knows she didn’t commit the murder but now she must launch her own investigation since the police do not seem to be looking at anyone else. Is she being set up and if so by whom? What will happen if the killer believes she is getting to close to the truth? Can Lauren make it out unscathed or become victim number 2? This book will leave you on the edge of your seat with many predictions on who the killer might be. Can you figure it out before the police do? Read this book to see just how good your detective skills are!
