Lauren Carr in her new book, “Kill And Run book coverKill And Run” Book One in the Thorny Rose Mystery series published by Acorn Book Services gives us the first adventure with Murphy Thornton and Jessica Faraday.

From the back cover:  Five women with seemingly nothing in common are found brutally murdered in a townhome outside Washington, DC. Among the many questions surrounding the massacre is what had brought these apparent strangers together only to be killed.

Taking on his first official murder case, Lieutenant Murphy Thornton, USN, believes that if he can uncover the thread connecting the victims, then he can find their murderer.

The case takes an unexpected turn when Murphy discovers that one of the victims has a connection to his stepmother, Homicide Detective Cameron Gates. One wintry night, over a dozen years before, her first husband, a Pennsylvania State trooper, had been run down while working a night shift on the turnpike.

In this first installment of the Thorny Rose Mysteries, the Lovers in Crime join newlyweds Murphy Thornton and Jessica Faraday to shift through a web of lies and cover-ups. Together, can the detectives of the Thorny Rose uncover the truth without falling victim to a cunning killer?

Get ready to be introduced to a new detective team, Lieutenant Murphy Thornton, USN, and Jessica Faraday, heiress and daughter of multi-millionaire Mac Faraday. What makes this so special? Well it is a spin-off from the Mac Faraday Mystery series as Jessica is Mac’s daughter. And these two hit the ground running. First off there has been a massacre. Murph has, literally, nothing to go on and he want to solve this multiple homicide. Then he finds out there is a link to the death of his stepmother’s first husband who was a Homicide Detective. Murph and Jessica are very interesting characters and seem to leap off the page. “Kill And Run” 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. Take the phone off the hook and make yourself a big bowl of popcorn because once you get started you will not want to put this book down until you actually finish. This is a great beginning to an interesting series and I am looking forward to more.
