Annette Dashofy is back with another Zoe Chambers cozy mystery, Uneasy Prey.
I was first drawn to this series due to the main character being involved in rural EMS. While I never took the EMT test I have spent some time helping folks working in EMS. So it is always fun to read a story dealing with the reality of smaller community fire and ambulance services.
In this story, Zoe is dispatched to the home of an elderly resident. Someone who calls 911 on a regular basis. As they respond to the scene the medics think this will be some routine run. On their arrival, the patient is badly injured at the bottom of a staircase.
When the patient dies it becomes apparent someone pushed her down the stairs. The rural county has been hit with a rash of daytime burglaries. The criminals are preying on older homeowners and using the disguise of water department worker to gain access inside their homes.
The story has a good pace and multiple possible suspects. There are just enough clues to keep the reader questioning which of the possible suspects are involved. By the end of the book when the killer is revealed I felt satisfied.
So if you are looking for a book to pick up I would suggest checking out Uneasy Prey.
