Review: The Cost of Crude by Inge-Lise Goss
Gwynn Reznick's life is shattered when her best friend and co-worker at Wilton Oil & Gas Company dies in a car crash. She doubts it was an accident. Her suspicion is confirmed when a private investigator, Ruben Dordi, shows up at her door. His team has discovered a trail of unusual deaths and disappearances among Wilton employees. To make matters worse, Gwynn is under constant surveillance by those responsible for her friend's death. But that doesn't deter her from getting involved in the investigation. Danger lurks in every corner of the Wilton Tower. One false move could turn a risky situation into a death trap. As the investigation team digs deeper, they begin to unravel a sinister plot that threatens a catastrophic pipeline disaster. Will they solve the crime before it is too late?
I received this book to give an honest review.
So even though I really did enjoy the suspense through out the book I had to give this a 4 rating being as towards the end I started to get confused on exactly who dun-it. There were a lot of characters within the book that sometimes the side characters I would get lost on.
Now with that said. There is so much going on within the book, you have murders happening, you have a grandmother who wants to solve the murder so she hires Ruben to find out for her. Well when Ruben starts investigating he ends up meeting Gwynn who works for the oil company. And that is when the real action begins. It seems someone doesn't want anyone to find out the truth about the oil company Wilton Oil and Gas. Ruben in the process of investigating he also has to keep Gwynn safe. But Gwynn seems able to hold her own at some points which I thought was a good character quality. I dislike when a female character can not really hold her own in fights or defending themselves. It is always like ugggggggg really. So with Gwynn I was impressed, especially with her not backing down and willing to figure out what happened with her friend.
Now there is a bit of romance but it did not make the story. This is full of mystery, action and how much the cost of crude is really worth.
