As with my review of the first in the Liv Bergen Mystery book, In the Belly of Jonah, I do not want to give anything away in Sandra Brannan’s second book in the series Lot’s Return to Sodom. If anyone would like to learn more about the book please check out the publisher’s website beware it may contain spoilers.
Lot’s Return to Sodom by Sandra Brannan is the second in her Liv Bergen Mystery series and picks up roughly four weeks after the conclusion of the first book in the series, In the Belly of Jonah. Before returning to her mine work, Liv returns home to Rapid City, SD, and much of the story develops in and about that locale. When Michelle Freeburg’s body was discovered along Boxelder Creek, FBI Agent Shankley is convinced this murder is the work of The Crooked Man, who he believes to be the leader of Lucifer’s Lot, but Agent Pierce has other opinions. Alternating between Liv Bergen trying to solve the crime and clear her brother’s name with the narrative of FBI Agent Streeter Pierce, who has been called up from Colorado to work with FBI agents Shankley and Blysdorf, Brannan crafts yet another intricate and complex mystery thriller in her latest Live Bergen Mystery. I found Lot’s Return to Sodom to be an excellent sequel to In the Belly of Jonah with not quite the graphic and gruesome scenes and descriptions as were in the first story but with an even more intense and twisted storyline. Personally I cannot wait for the third Liv Bergen Mystery. I highly recommend Lot’s Return to Sodom to all readers who enjoy excellent mystery/thriller fans.
For twenty-five years, Sam Brannan has run a division in the mining company that was founded by her grandfather, father, and uncle in 1944. She lives with her family in Rapid City, South Dakota.
