From the back cover: The Fallen Angels Book Club has only two requirements: the members must love books and have a white-collar criminal record. Hollis Morgan fits the bill. Left holding the bag in an insurance fraud scheme concocted by her now ex-husband, she served her time and is trying to rebuild her life. All she wants is for the court to pardon her conviction so she can return to law school.
After one of her fellow members is murdered in a scenario straight out of a club selection, Hollis is once again the subject of police scrutiny. Refusing to get stuck with another bad rap, she sets out to investigate her fellow club members. Is one of them really blackmailing the others? As a second member dies in yet another book-inspired murder, Hollis realizes that time is running out. Everything rides on her finding the killer—not just her career aspirations. She must identify the killer before she herself becomes the next victim. Everyone is convinced she knows more than she lets on. But what is it, exactly, that is she supposed to know?
The Fallen Angels Book Club is the first book in an exciting new mystery series featuring amateur sleuth Hollis Morgan.
“The Fallen Angels Book Club” is very clever. It has a murder by the book club which, I feel, is highly inventive. The killer is following the plot of a book which is being used by The Fallen Angels book club. Hollis was the moderator and the cops now think that she did it. Hollis has been to jail already, due to being framed by her ex-husband, and didn’t appreciate the stay. So she certainly does not want to go back again when she knows she didn’t do it. So to make sure the cops get the proper person Hollis sets out to find the killer. Problem is the body count is rising and now her life is in great danger. “The Fallen Angels Book Club” is a wonderful thriller as the tension mounts as Hollis becomes the target of the killer putting her life in great peril. “The Fallen Angels Book Club” is loaded with twists and turns and red herrings that will leave you guessing all the while you are flipping pages to find out what happens next. When you finish this book you will heave a hugely satisfying sigh because you have enjoyed yourself immensely. Ms. Franklin James has provided us with a great new character in Hollis Morgan. I am already looking forward to the next book in this series from this very talented author.
