Welcome to my blog tour stop for Duality by K.J. McGillick. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on this tour! Check out my review and let me know what you think in the comments.
Two sides of the same coin. Completely alike. Completely different.
What started out as a normal art restoration project for Melinda Martin soon took on a life of its own. Could this unusual painting actually be a Botticelli masterpiece thought to have perished as part of Savonarola’s Bonfire of the Vanities? Had Melinda’s friend, Lana, a well-known art picker inadvertently acquired stolen art; art that might have ties to the occult and worth millions? Did a bad business decision endanger everyone who touched this potential treasure?
When the painting disappears and both women are found dead, the police think it’s an open and shut case. The husband – it’s always the husband. He had means, motive, and opportunity, and acted strangely cold after the fact.
Is it a case of mistaken identity? Does a secret relationship put Mr. Martin in the crosshairs of an assassin sent to retrieve the painting? Or is he really a sociopath forger with mysterious ties to the Vatican?
Far from surprising, I loved Duality. K.J. McGillick is a wonderful thriller/suspense writer, and I have loved every novel I’ve read by her. This one is no exception. It is brilliantly written with a carefully woven web of clues that come together in the end perfectly. I love when I can’t guess the end of a mystery, and Duality had me guessing.
I love the multiple POVs. As the characters reveal more about themselves, the murder mystery solution becomes clearer. The danger, deception and double-crossing are written over all the pages, which makes the pace of this novel really great. I had no trouble reading this in one sitting with fantastic characters and a plot that kept me invested.
I was on a roller-coaster with Duality that I didn’t want to get off. The unexpected twists and turns came fast and strong. There wasn’t a moment of boredom in this book! Recommended for sure!
K. J. McGillick was born in New York and once she started to walk she never stopped running. But that’s what New Yorker’s do. Right? A Registered Nurse, a lawyer now author.
As she evolved so did her career choices. After completing her graduate degree in nursing, she spent many years in the university setting sharing the dreams of the enthusiastic nursing students she taught. After twenty rewarding years in the medical field she attended law school and has spent the last twenty-four years as an attorney helping people navigate the turbulent waters of the legal system. Not an easy feat. And now? Now she is sharing the characters she loves with readers hoping they are intrigued by her twisting and turning plots and entertained by her writing.
