Nothing To Hide
Nothing to Hide is the latest novel from J. Mark Bertrand where the reader is once more following the detective Roland March who has been called to the scene of a grisly murder. This time its a decapitated body where all visible signs of identification have been removed, no tattoos, no skin left on either hand and no head, with any possible dental record identifications long gone. Only one clue remains on the body, a finger pointing into the woods. Is that where the head is? Is that the direction Detective March must begin this investigation? Or is there something someone really wants to hide?
As he launches into a confusing investigation that turn up more questions than answers, Detective March injures himself while trying to cross a gully and resolves to self medicate himself over seeing a doctor, even though this injury seems to cause him immeasurable pain. A meeting with FBI leads him to Agent Bea Kuykendahl who informs him that she knows who his John Doe murder victim is, but insists on keeping his identity a secret to prevent another undercover agent from being murdered in the process of an ongoing sting operation.
She provides him with a folder filled with false information she requires him to investigate to ensure whoever has murdered John Doe, feels that they made a huge mistake. She believes it's only with March's help, that together they can bring this case to a close. However when the information that March begins to uncover doesn't make sense, he can only conclude that someone else besides the murderer has something to hide, something they will do anything to prevent from being revealed.
I received Nothing to Hide from J. Mark Bertrand compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review. This one was a bit confusing for me to understand. Having read the prior Roland March mystery's, I was determined to follow this one through to the end. I have to say however that this one did not resonate with me like the ones before, and with so many various leads that Roland spent chasing, encounters with the FBI, people from his past with ties to the Mexican cartel, and the time spent at the Gun Club, left me wanting so much more from this one. I would rate this one a 4 out of 5 stars and for those of you who love crime/mystery novels, then you will undoubtedly will want to pick up this series.
