Review: Revolver Road by Christi Daughtry


Release date: March 10, 2020

Publisher: Minotaur

Genre: Mystery/Thriller


Even in the chill of February, no place touches Harper McClain’s heart like Savannah. She should be walking beneath the historic city’s towering oaks, surrounded by graceful mansions. Instead, she’s hiding miles away on Tybee Island after a mysterious voice on the phone warned her that someone wanted her dead. The call was too specific to ignore. The caller knew everything about her. But that was months ago, and she’s getting tired of being scared.

Her only escape is her work at the newspaper, where the hottest story in town is the disappearance of Xavier Rayne. The singer had a hit album on his hands, and was about to go on tour, but then he walked out of his beachfront home and vanished. The police believe he drowned, but Harper suspects his disappearance may be more ominous than that. Something doesn’t feel right about it.

His bandmates and actress girlfriend say he’s run away before. They expect him to come home. Until a body washes up with two bullet holes in it. Now everyone in Rayne’s life is a suspect. As Harper digs deeper into the case, though, the threats against her own life return. The phone call she received was very real. A killer from her past is coming for her.

Now she must solve two murders, or end up dying on Revolver Road… 

This is the third in a series and while I’m sure you could read this on its own I wouldn’t recommend it. Part of why I’m such a fan of these books is because I’ve become so invested in Harper and her history, so if you start here I don’t think you’ll really appreciate her as a character quite as much as if you read from the beginning. BUT, I’ve really enjoyed all three books and can definitely recommend them all.
While the story Harper is working on is entertaining enough it’s pretty standard fare as far as a mystery goes. What really kept me engaged was digging deeper into Harper’s past and finally getting some answers to long awaited questions. I also love the setting of Savannah, it’s well drawn by the author and I can easily envision what’s going on. There’s also so much interesting stuff going on in Harper’s personal life, both personally and professionally that I’m excited to see what happens next. Definitely a great addition to a solid series.
Overall rating: 4/5
Thanks to the publisher for my review copy.
