Charlotte's sister, Audrey, comes to Sloane Monroe, who is a private investigator, to ask her to look into her sister's death, because she thinks it was no accident that took her sister away from her. She thinks it's murder. Sloane takes on the case, and thinks about her own sister who was murdered not that long ago, and the killer is still free.
I like Sloane. She's independent and not afraid to take on a dangerous situation by herself if she thinks it will help someone else. The other characters in the book are interesting and original, and sometimes bring a break of humor to the search for a murderer. Sloane's friend, Maddie, is a great character, always giving advice to Sloane. The other character who adds a nice little sidekick for Sloane is Lord Berkeley, better known as Boo, her dog.
The theme of this novel surrounds the real estate business in Park City, and most of the characters who pop in and out of scenes in the story are involved in real estate or else they're the police. I had no idea who the perpetrator was until the end of the book when it was revealed.
Black Diamond Death moves at a steady pace, but not a frantic one. It's a comfortable pace and there are a lot of tense situations in the book. I've downloaded the next one in the Sloane Monroe series, Sinnerman, because I enjoyed the first book and I have the feeling I'm going to find an even better novel with the second one. Four stars for Black Diamond Death! Recommended for mystery fans.
Audrey Halliwell believes her sister, Charlotte, was murdered and she hires Sloane to prove it. The police believe it was a straightforward skiing accident. Sloane takes the case and soon proves murder by poison, but she still has to find out who and why. Charlotte was a top real estate agent and, until just recently, she was engaged to Parker Stanton. She had broken the engagement just a few days before she died. Charlotte had found out that Parker was involved with other women. Did he kill her? Or was it one of the other women? Then Parker is killed and by a different method. Are there two killers?
This was a good mystery that kept me guessing and there was an unexpected twist at the end. There was good character development, the story didn't lag, and there was a little romance. What more could you want? A dog? There was a dog, too! Buy the book.
