The cold case of a murdered boy is the last thing that Detective Chris Bellini wants, because he's raising a child who is the same age as the murdered child. But his discomfort with the case, ramps up to sheer terror when he realizes that the killer is still out there and he and his grand-daughter may be the next victims.
I loved it (Amazon five star review)
Amazing First Book (Amazon five star review)
"The investigation leads Chris into a web of lies and family secrets that had me chomping at the bit to find the truths. I didn't really see the twists coming (which is hard for a book to be successful with me). This was a really great read. Five stars (Goodreads review)
"OK, all those plans I had for today? Not done. Not a single thing done that I had planned. Why? Because I started reading Marguerite Mooers' book when I was brushing my teeth at breakfast. I could not stop. It's called "Take My Hand" and is clearly involving enough to not put down until completed. If you like well-written mysteries, this one needs to be on your list." (Facebook post)
"After a slow start with the shooting of Detective Bellini, the tension really builds from the moment he and Larry begin investigating and does not let up (no easy feat for a procedural like this.) Lorna is a great secondary character, with a well-developed emotional arc and compelling relationships that made her involvement in the case even more tense and dangerous."
