Quick Summary of No Good Deed Left Undone by Ginny Fite. 
"He had an itchy feeling, something he had seen that his memory had recorded but that he wasn’t paying attention to…”

When a man has everything, he can afford to be generous. Lawyer, philanderer, and horseman Grant Wodehouse is generous to a fault—until he’s stabbed to death with a pitchfork in his barn. The killer could be anyone—his lover’s husband, his troubled son, the homeless guy he lets sleep in his barn, his unscrupulous partner or even his wife.

​Methodical Detective Sam Lagarde doesn’t miss a clue as he questions an ever-growing list of suspects, only to discover the killer has been hiding in plain sight the entire time. Always one step behind the killer, finally Lagarde’s only recourse is one he never wanted to take.

Fite offers a well-written, well-planned crime thriller. The author provides just enough twists and turns to hold the reader's interest and does a great job in maintaining a level of suspense throughout the book. Even if you are able to determine who the killer is--there is still plenty of reason to keep reading. 

This book stands alone in the series. This was the first book I've read from Fite's Sam Lagarde mystery series. Fortunately, it is a stand-alone novel that readers may pick up and enjoy without reading the whole series. I am sure that I will develop a stronger connection to some of the recurring characters as I read more of the books in the series--but; unlike some series, I didn't feel lost or disconnected at all.

Would I recommend No Good Deed Left Undone by Ginny Fite? When I re-read the back cover to refresh my memory of the storyline--I realized that I had missed the S&M text. After initially thinking, "Oh, great--what did I agree to read?"--I was glad that the S&M angle was a very minor angle of the book. I enjoyed the author's writing style and plot development--and found myself looking forward to another adventure with Detective Lagarde. I would recommend this book to crime thriller/suspense novel fans--who do not mind violence or difficult subject themes.
