From the back cover: When Jeanie D’Alisa is found murdered in her bedroom after hosting a dinner party in her home, detectives Anna Cole and Kristy Hicks are called to investigate the crime.
Known within her community for her generous, yet unpredictable nature, Jeanie’s secrets unfold as family, friends and neighbors become suspects. Anna and Kristy discover stamped passport pages revealing travels unknown and a curious relationship between Jeanie and the charming salesman who frequents the apartment building.
Meryl, Jeanie’s devoted and needy friend, further complicates the investigation when she phones Jeanie’s sister who is studying abroad and lies to her about the cause of death. Through a muddied pool of misdirection and betrayal, will Anna and Kristy be able to assemble the clues in order to bring Jeanie’s killer to justice?
The path to solving the mystery becomes tangled with faces of loved ones who are revealed to be foes in this story about the lengths people will go to in order to save themselves.
Ms. Duncan has given us a fast paced mystery that will have you guessing all the way till the end. Detectives Anna Cole and Kristy Hicks are two very unique written characters. This is definitively an exciting story. Don’t start this book late at night because it will cost you sleep as you are not going to want to put the book down. I am glad I found this talented author and am looking forward to more Anna and Kristy mysteries from Ms. Duncan.
