Run You Down by: Julia Dahl


Book #60 for #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks.

This is the second book in the Rebekah Roberts series.  I read and really enjoyed the first one and couldn’t wait to pick this one up.  In this story we learn more about Rebekah and her mother, Aviva.  This is not the main plot of the story as Rebekah is a news reporter who also helps solves mysteries that take place in Orthodox Jewish communities.

If you know anything at all about this particular religion, they like to handle things on their own without involving our governmental system.  They rarely involve the police or forensic experts when their is an incident involving one of their own.  Rebekah has found herself to be slightly in their circle of trust and has helped solved two of their murders so far.

I absolutely loved the first book and thought I would love this one just as much.  Unfortunately, I didn’t.  This just wasn’t as good as the first one and the story line was a bit hard to follow.  We flip back and forth in time and narrator from Rebekah in the present to Aviva in the past.  I had a hard time keeping track of what was going on.  The story line of the mystery was not as encapsulating either.  I was just disappointed in this book as a whole.

I gave it 2 crowns.
