Burning Water by Inge-Lise Goss begins another sleuthing job for Gwynn Reznick, a rookie investigator with a habit of snooping. Ruben, her boss and boyfriend, is scheduled to solve this case with Gwynn, but something called him away, leaving her with minimal supervision. An employee of H&E Oil has died under mysterious circumstances and Gwynn needs to question friends and co-workers while uncovering clues he may have left behind. She finds there is more to this case than meets the eye, and Ruben sends extra operatives to back her up. There are more questions with every answer she uncovers. Gwynn finds she must flirt with the enemy to solve some problems, but will this cause trouble in her relationship with Ruben?
Through an intricate weaving of characters, the thrill of suspense, and expected danger, Inge-Lise Goss devises an alluring novel. Burning Water is a complex book that keeps the reader deeply engrossed as the plot intertwines with a more devious plan. Gwynn and Ruben learn that they are investigating more than a suspicious death as Gwynn digs deeper. The pace quickly takes the reader through a whirlwind of events and people. This story has a unique setting that makes it refreshing. I found Inge-Lise Goss to be a gifted and intriguing author. Her twists woven within the characters intensify as the story unfolds. Any of the characters could be the killer. The plot thickens as it involves more people. Overall, this novel is well written and makes the reader feel they are right there looking over Gwynn’s shoulder. Gwynn is a fun character that thinks differently and therefore gets the job done.
