The Deepest Cut
by Dianne Emley
This is the third in the trilogy about Pasadena Police Department detective Nan Vining, who was brutally attacked and left for dead by a deranged and cunning unknown man. Nan and her teen daughter Emily have dubbed him "T.B. Mann" for "the bad man." As Nan struggles to get her career and life back on her terms, she obsessively takes the investigation of her attack into her own hands. I liked how the author puts the reader inside Nan's head and especially liked Nan's emotional and physical strength. Read these in order: The First Cut, Cut to the Quick, and then The Deepest Cut. Though not for the squeamish, they are well-written suspense novels with a little romance thrown in.
