Criminologist Dr. Gretchen White thought Detective Lauren Marconi could never cross certain lines. Then Lauren, with fresh blood on her hands, is arrested for an execution-style slaying. Even as the evidence mounts, Gretchen is convinced she’s innocent. Because Lauren would have known how to get away with murder.

Forced to team up with Lachlan Gibbs, the combative by-the-book star of Internal Affairs and Lauren’s boyfriend, Gretchen starts digging for the truth. But when she begins to uncover Lauren’s closely guarded secrets, the investigation raises more questions than answers. As Lauren’s decade-long obsession with the victim comes to light, Gretchen can’t help but doubt her own instincts.

She knows better than most that not everything is as it seems. And with Lauren’s future on the line, it’s more important than ever to see this mystery through to the end.

Adele’s Review:

Brianna Labuskes has written a dark, edgy, multi-layered murder mystery with See It End. Her writing is flawless, and her unusual characters are well drawn.

Though this is the third book in the series featuring Detective Lauren Marconi and Criminologist Dr. Gretchen White, the story stands well on its own. It’s told from the POV of Gretchen White, a non-violent sociopath, whose personality is brilliant and disturbing in equal measure. I was able to appreciate the author’s writing skills despite being unnerved by the inner workings of Gretchen’s mind and the subject matter of serial child murders.
