In a sleepy little parish just outside of New Orleans, murder is no rare occurrence.

Sergeant Lance Knight has a pile of unsolved homicide cases on his desk. On the surface, none seem to be connected. The victims are all men with money or power. An investment banker, a lawyer, and a local politician. They don’t socially run in the same circles. Lance can’t find a connection.

Working closely with coroner Gina Goodwin, Lance and Gina discover a pattern. Three unrelated things the bodies all have in common—a string of lethal connections. Is it just a coincidence, or is it something more?

Things heat up when Lance realizes he’s getting close to finding the killer, and everything spirals out of control. Can he piece it together before it’s too late?

Lethal Connections is a sleuth murder mystery novel by Erik Daniel Shein, Melissa Davis, and Karen Fuller. Sergent Lance Knight has quite the challenge of maintaining law and order as an officer at the St. Bernard Parish in Chalmette, Louisiana. Apart from struggling to end things with his girlfriend, Lance has the added burden of trying to solve a string of murders, with each victim poisoned under mysterious circumstances. While Lance searches for clues to find a missing link between the victims, he is joined by the enigmatic coroner and herpetology enthusiast Gina Goodwin. But when the FBI arrives and offers their help solving the case, Lance realizes that things are not as they seem and that there must be something he is missing. Can he get to the bottom of the mystery before putting his own life on the line?

Fans of sleuth murder mysteries or detective tales are in for a treat with Lethal Connections. Erik Daniel Shein, Melissa Davis, and Karen Fuller tell a gripping story of murder, crime, and betrayal that has you glued to the pages from start to finish. The authors perfectly capture the feel and ambiance of rural Louisiana, with its swamps, poisonous reptiles, and the underlying criminal underworld. The hyper-realistic and gritty tone of the narrative is peppered with bouts of humor sprinkled throughout the pages. I particularly enjoyed the dynamic between Lance, Gina, and Captain Donovan. Overall, this is a book I immensely enjoyed, and I read it in one go. Can't recommend it highly enough. -- Reviewed by Pikasho Deka for Readers' Favorite
