The Water of Life Remains in the Dead

By Maria Nieto

Publisher: FloricantoTM Press and Berkeley Press

The story begins with Alexandra Marisol, a reporter for the Los Angeles Times, being assigned to cover the story of five murdered bodies found in a truck. As the investigation progresses the lead homicide investigator has his mind set on who the killer is. Alexandra is not so sure and her diligence and resolve is unrelenting to catch the right killer. This meticulousness takes her on a path she didn’t think possible.

The writer does an amazing job of weaving an intriguing plot with great characters to bring this story together. It is full of mystery and suspense and you won’t guess who done it until the very end. Now that makes for a good story!

In addition, the writer brings in forensic science techniques that help catch the murderer, which adds another great component to the story. I learned a few things about forensics that I didn’t know before. Ms. Nieto has definitely done her homework in this book.

The story is so intriguing that you don’t want to put it down. I read it in a day. It was that good. If you like suspense stories then this book is for you.

If the author’s intent was to create a page turner book, she did it magnificently. The book is 200 pages and it’s a very easy read. The scenes and characters are written with action and they totally keep the story moving forward.

If you are looking for a good book packed with a punch and great entertainment, then get this one. I highly recommend it and I doubt you will be disappointed. Ms. Nieto is definitely a great suspense writer. I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us.
