All the Best Lies

All the Best Lies by Joanna Schaffhausen--A cold case is uncomfortably close to home for FBI agent Reed Markham. It appears that one of the prime suspects in the murder of his birth mother forty years ago is his adoptive father, a powerful VA politico now running for governor. There are abundant red herrings to keep everything lively and propel the plot.  This is third in a series but can be read easily as a standalone. The action takes place largely in Las Vegas and the author does a great job of painting a picture of the city. This is as much a family drama as it is a murder mystery.
