Elizabeth Flynn in her new book “Dead Gorgeous book coverDead Gorgeous” Book Two in the A Mystery for D. I. Costello series published by Kregel Publications gives us another thriller with D. I. Angela Costello.

From the back cover:  Fashion model Kirsty Manners is young, beautiful, and recently dead

Kirsty Manners is trying to make it as a model. As the in-house model for the Ivano King fashion house and girlfriend of Ian King, the man behind the label, she believes she is well on her way. But Kirsty is found dead in her flat one Sunday afternoon and D. I. Angela Costello is called to the scene.

First enquiries center on the local gym where Kirsty, her dangerous ex-boyfriend, Darren Carpenter, and her jealous flatmate, Sandra Hodges, worked out. But things are more complicated. Ian King is considered to have lost his edge. Why then is he so buoyant about his latest collection for London Fashion Week? What about his new girlfriend, Eleanor Chandler, who openly admits to having a reason to wish Kirsty dead?

Behind the gleaming smiles and flawless makeup of the glamorous fashion world, Angela’s enquiries uncover theft, drug-addiction, prostitution, and imprisonment–and suddenly her own life could be in danger.

“Dead Gorgeous” is a good old fashioned murder mystery. It never would have occurred to me that the world of high fashion could be such a dangerous place. Treachery, jealousy, prostitution and drug addiction are just some of what Angela is up against as she sets out to solve the murder of Kirsty. However this is not an easy case there are all sorts of twists and turns and just when you think you have the murderer book here comes another twist that proves you wrong. I have confidence in your abilities to solve cases however do not feel badly if you don’t solve this one. Really tough case. I am glad I found Elizabeth Flynn and I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
