Julianna Deering in her new book, “Rules Of Murder book coverRules Of Murder” Book One in the A Drew Farthering Mystery series published by Bethany House Publishers introduces us to Drew Farthering.

From the Back Cover:  Introducing Drew Farthering

From the tip of his black Homburg to the crease in his Cheviot trousers, he’s the epitome of a stylish 1930’s English gentleman.  His only problem?  The body he just discovered.

Drew Farthering loves a good mystery, although he generally expects to find it in the pages of a novel, not on the grounds of his country estate.

With the help of beautiful and whip-smart Madeline Parker, a guest from America, Drew proposes to use the lessons he’s learned  reading his mysteries to solve the crime.  Before long he realizes this is no lark, and no one at Farthering Place is who he or she appears to be-not the butler nor the blackmailer, the chauffeur nor the embezzler.  Trying hard to remain one step ahead of the killer–and trying harder to impress Madeline–Drew must decide how far to take this game.

I grew up watching the repeats of the old 30’s and 40’s black and white mystery movies with the gentleman detective and I loved every minute of them.  Couldn’t get enough of them actually.  Then, sadly, there were no more.  Those detectives had seen their day and were replaced by the Private Investigator and then even he disappeared from view.  Imagine my delight when I found that Ms. Deering had recreated the gentlemen detective in her Drew Farthering series.  “Rules Of Murder’ progresses at a nice, steady pace introducing all the characters and then the murder for which Drew is the suspect.  Now he sets off to find out who the murderer really is with the help of his friends before the body count continues to rise.  “Rules Of Murder” is a page-turner, action, suspense thriller.  Drew and his friends lives are in deadly danger as they try to sort out the lies and deceptions and identify the killer before he kills them.  Don’t start this book late at night because it will be very difficult to put it down.  I recommend this book highly and am greatly looking forward to the next book in this excellent series.
