If that's not enough, Raleigh's wacky aunt gets her tangled into a convoluted case that stretches her patience. Struggling to save both job and family… With one last-ditch effort, Raleigh goes into near-exile at the northwest tip of Washington state—a haunting land of courage and pain where an ancient tribe conceals dark and disturbing secrets.As the mysteries expand and time runs out, Raleigh realizes she's in too deep—too deep to escape alive….If you like romantic suspense with captivating characters and surprising twists, read the Raleigh Harmon P.I. Mysteries.

    I couldn't wait to read the next book in this series, and when it arrived on my Kindle a few days ago I gobbled it up. LOVE Raleigh Harmon! Sibella Giorello has an amazing way with words not to mention her details regarding Raleigh's forensic geology and murder solving sensibilities. You can't put a Raleigh Harmon book down.

    Once again, Sibella Giorello doesn't disappoint with this installment in the Raleigh Harmon series. Giorello has hit her stride and keeps writing crisp, suspenseful tomes that mystery lovers can delight in. I loved tagging along for yet another adventure with Raleigh who finds herself smack dab in the middle of yet another murder investigation. This time her own freedom is at stake, and she somehow has to keep her wits while facing trouble at home too.

The poetic descriptions are a Giorello trademark, and there's some nice introspection mixed in with the action (though I always wish for a little more of this.) But then again, Raleigh wouldn't be Raleigh if she didn't run from her feelings as much as she runs from the bad guys. This one was worth the wait and will fit nicely into your murder mystery library.

    Once again, Raleigh Harmon’s world is teetering on the brink of disaster with crazy family situations, a tension-filled romance with Jack, and her habit of making enemies in law enforcement. Using her forensic geology expertise, legwork, wits, and perseverance – or should I say, stubborn never-say-die attitude – she goes about investigating the mysterious murder of a young native American man. Raleigh’s character gets under your skin, just like she does with pretty much everyone she meets along Once again, Raleigh Harmon’s world is teetering on the brink of disaster with crazy family situations, a tension-filled romance with Jack, and her habit of making enemies in law enforcement. Using her forensic geology expertise, legwork, wits, and perseverance – or should I say, stubborn never-say-die attitude – she goes about investigating the mysterious murder of a young native American man. Raleigh’s character gets under your skin, just like she does with pretty much everyone she meets along the journey. They either love her or hate her. She’s not someone you can just ignore. She’s too smart by far for the by-the-book cops who think following protocol is the only way, even if they have a backlog of cold cases and absolutely no clue. Raleigh always finds another way. A more dangerous way, and usually the path of greatest resistance, but she gets the job done. Even if it nearly kills her.She might be from the south, but her lack of southern belle charm is one of the reasons I like her so much. She doesn’t mind getting dirty, she loves burgers, mayo with her fries, and fast cars. She hides her feelings from the people she cares about most, because that’s where her fear lies. Loving people and losing them. Saying I love you is much harder for her than hunting a killer.Raleigh can be heroic one second and aggravating the next. Sometimes I’m cheering her on and other times I really want to yell at her. But whether I’m cheering or yelling, I’m still turning pages and devouring the story because Author Sibella Giorello is just that good.

    The book starts with a corpse caught on Raleigh's oar and continues through an amazing combination of issues. All of the characters are unique and special, and the action keeps flying throughout the Seattle area as many subplots add to the overall story. The plot is very imaginative and includes education as well as entertainment. The twist at the end is completely unseen, and the emotional finale was outstanding. This is the kind of book you will think about long after you finish reading it.

    Wow. I’m awestruck and flabbergasted. Another masterpiece from Giorello. With a fabulous setting, unforgettable characters (who else wants an Eleanor in their life?) and thrilling twists... The Wind Will Howl is sparkling - fiction at its best!

    I think this book was my favorite Raleigh Harmon book yet! To me, this is book 8 in the Raleigh Harmon series, though after books 6 &7 were published, the author decided to make a defined break and make them the beginning of a new series..... which makes sense. However, the story lines do run together. While I think this could probably work as a stand-alone, I'd strongly recommend reading at least the first 2 in this series first and would probably more strongly recommend the whole first ser I think this book was my favorite Raleigh Harmon book yet! To me, this is book 8 in the Raleigh Harmon series, though after books 6 &7 were published, the author decided to make a defined break and make them the beginning of a new series..... which makes sense. However, the story lines do run together. While I think this could probably work as a stand-alone, I'd strongly recommend reading at least the first 2 in this series first and would probably more strongly recommend the whole first series first (and probably the prequel series as there's a character from there that has popped up in this series). There's just a lot of history in there. This book starts with Raleigh and Jack doing an early morning row (this allowed them to see each other every day AND get some exercise) when her oar gets stuck on something. Though Jack tells her to let go of the oar, if you know Raleigh, you know she doesn't take direction well. Instead of letting go, she goes down with it - and finds it stuck in a dead body. She gets herself inserted into the case and per usual, finds herself getting in trouble with the lead detective on the case. Towards the end, the pressure is on to solve the case or her life will forever be changed. Several of the old cast of characters are here - Jack, Raleigh's mom and her aunt Charlotte, Raleigh's childhood friend Lani (from the prequel series) and of course the overly dramatic Eleanor. But we also get introduced to some new characters as well, including Jack's sister, a quirky botanist named Wesley (who's a woman), and some some fellow geologists Sal and Sal. I hope all of them will become recurring characters! This book was full of mystery and suspense, I didn't know who did it till the very end (though I went down the same rabbit trail as Raleigh did). There was, of course, some romance, but in typical fashion for this series, it was not overwhelming. And I love that no matter how badly Raleigh messes up, Jack will still put everything aside to come help her. The ending had me in tears because it was so sweet. I can't wait to see what happens next! For readers who enjoy a good mystery, some intense suspense, a heroine who looks out for the little guy, and a swoon-worthy hero who loves her in spite of herself, I would highly recommend this series!

    This is book 3 in the Raleigh Harmon P.I. Mysteries series, which takes place after Raleigh has left the FBI. There is also a series, Raleigh Harmon FBI Mysteries, Raleigh Harmon Novel series and a series of Prequel tales. It would have been better to maybe start with the first book, to follow the characters development to the position she is in now, but it isn’t necessary. Enough information is given for you to understand her past and how she got to where she is now.This book has Raleigh using This is book 3 in the Raleigh Harmon P.I.

She inserts herself into the investigation in a roundabout way and pushes against her former boss who got her sacked. Along with this case, she has to deal with personal issues as her mother is finally released from a mental institution and her other relatives are tiring and wearing on her patience.She has to try and save both her family and her job, all whilst trying to solve a couple of cases with more twists than you expect. The body she tangled with in the water was a young man from a small Native American tribe, the Makah. Raleigh gets Jack to drop her off near the reservation and again she sticks her nose in where she shouldn’t. She should be confirming a wedding date to Jack, but ends up needing to call for his help as she ends up in a dangerous situation.A great read, just sad I didn’t know about this author earlier! I have bought one of the first books and will go back in her story, to catch up with her development and Jack’s and her career in the FBI. This is an interesting read and kept me entertained all the way through. I would recommend this book and the author to others. I received an ARC copy of this book from Hidden Gems and I have freely given my own opinion of the book above.

    This is another intriguing murder/suspense story of Raleigh Harmon scrambling to figure out impossible mysteries while juggling personal life issues. In addition to being pulled into the action, I was drawn into her emotional struggles, hopes, fears, agonies, sensitivity, and intuition. All of the characters were so vivid and real--I felt like I was right there interacting with them. The descriptions were stunning, especially of the scenery in N. Washington.

    I really enjoyed the book! I read it in 3 days and didn't want to finish it because I didn't want it to be over, but I just couldn't put it down because I had to know what was going to happen! And the fact that the series is set in my home state of Washington just adds another level of interest for me. The plot is complex and interesting and unique, yet so incredibly fascinating that, like I said, is hard to put down!

    GrippingContinuing the trajectory of the fragile balance between eccentric family and their issues, a career post-FBI and a most-serious relationship, Raleigh makes steps and missteps en masse. Add a homicide, private case and her mother's continued dive into delusions to create a hurricane of headaches and intrigue. As always, Raleigh plugs along until she finds the answers no matter the enemies she gathers along with new friends. This series is well worth your time.

    Gah!!! That ending! I don't read a lot of suspense/mysteries, but I never can resist a Raleigh Harmon novel. I never can put the book down once I start. Once again, I found myself on a roller coaster ride as Raleigh defies the rules in her pursuit of the truth. My only complaint...not enough Jack. But in his few scenes he creates quite and impact. I hope for more of this duo, especially because I feel there were a few things left open ended here.

    Another great Raleigh Harmony mysteryI read this book in one sitting like all the others. I could not put it down and was extremely surprised when I finished. The story sucks you in and is so good that you don't realize that the time and page turning has the ending fast approaching. I'm hoping for more Raleigh Harmony mysteries either past or present. Thank you to the author for another exciting read

    Amazing!This is the first book I’ve read by this author, and I could NOT put it down. It pulled me in and kept my attention until the final word. The characters, story, and writing were terrific. If you like mysteries with a lot of suspense this is the book for you. If you like mysteries in general it’s for you too.I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

    Need more stars!!Definitely my favorite series in this genre. I love the science, the main characters, the supporting "staff", the setting details. Actually, what's not to like. But. What a place to conclude the story of Raleigh and Jack! I hopefully conclude there will be another?

    I received a copy of this book to review. Book 3 in the series. I have not read the first two books yet, so I had no knowledge of the backstory of Raleigh. This book was so well written, I had no trouble knowing what some of the challenges that she had faced. I will be searching out the other books in this series!

    Raleigh and JackI do so love this mystery series. Even if Raleigh always seem to pick the wrong suspect, she always gets it all right in the end. And this one also has the happiest ending of any in the series. But I do hope Raleigh finally figures out who murdered her father.
