From the back cover: Wealthy investors in Sedona, Arizona, are dropping like flies—more accurately, lead weights. They are falling down staircases and off mountainsides, decks, and hiking trails. With so many similar “accidents,” the victims had to have been pushed. Other than their wealth and weakness for beautiful young women, what the falling men had in common was a financial interest in Sedona Landing, a historic hotel in Oak Creek Village. They also shared a long history with the chief investor, billionaire Axel Ackerman. Fearing that he too will plunge to his death, Ackerman hires Matt Murdock and Helene Steinbeck to investigate.
During his climb to the top of the heap, Ackerman crushed scores of rivals and broke many hearts. The culling of his “Crew” of investors is clearly personal. So who among this crowded field of enemies would orchestrate such a byzantine scheme of revenge? To keep their client safe, Matt and Helene will have to be on their best game. Too bad their last case in Taos took such a heavy toll, particularly on Helene, and caused a rift in their fragile bond.
Murdock Rocks Sedona is the seventh book in the Matt Murdock Murder Mystery series, which began with Bloody Murdock.
It does not matter that I have never visited Sedona, Arizona, I feel that I have been there just because Mr. Ray is such a good writer. Someone is killing investors in the Sedona Landing hotel. As Axel Ackerman is the chief investor Matt and Helene are hired to protect him. “Murdock Rocks Sedona” hits the ground running and actually begins to pick up speed, rocketing along against a vivid physical and cultural landscape populated with true-to-life characters. To solve this murder Matt and Helene need all their abilities to sort through the Hispanic, Anglo, and Pueblo eccentricities of Arizona. “Murdock Rocks Sedona” 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. I think this is Mr. Ray’s best mystery! And I am already looking forward until the next book in this series comes out.
