Sarah Booth and her friend Tinkie are called by twin sisters in Natchez who want their help in investigating a missing heirloom ruby necklace. They find themselves involved in a case involving old money (often from sources people prefer not to talk about), decaying gentry, social rivalries, romantic liaisons, and crimes past and present. It is hard to say who is doing what to whom. There are surprises as a tangled web becomes unraveled. On a case that should have been a slam dunk, Sarah Booth finds her life in danger.
Along the way, you get a view of Natchez Under the Hill, past and present, with some comments on the history of dangers to travelers. A new dog and a new horse show up on the scene. Jitty, the resident haint at Sarah Booth's mansion, is still pushing Sarah Booth to have a child.
Although some of the action is far-fetched and other bits just down-right unbelievable, it is still a good read. The scene involving the drugging of someone with a prescription medication that supposedly has no antidote (except for the killer--he has the only antidote NOT the hospital & it must be administered within 2 hours) made me ANGRY! Obviously, I expect the 'suspension of disbelief' factor, it is, after all, fiction; but I do not like something so completely outrageous as a prescription anti-depressant approved by the FDA without a commonly available antidote that would kill a person within 2 hours...up until that passage, I felt this book was one of Haines' BEST EVER. This series is a real pleasure, especially with the author's insights into the Southern mystique. READ the whole series--they are well worth the time!
The situation starts out simple enough, but in true form gets complicated as most of Sarah Booth Delaney's adventures do. What I love about the series is that not only do the cases get complicated, but the back story (Sarah's personal life) gets complicated right along with the mysteries. I can't wait for the next one - not only to see what messy case Sarah Booth takes on, but to see what happens with her love life! (I'm still hoping for a Coleman reunion!!!)
I've read all the books in this series, and while some series get predictable and old, the Southern Mysteries are still fresh and new. Just when you think you've got it all figured out, you don't! I read a lot of mystery series, and will sometimes take a break from a series or 2 because they get so repetitive. Not so with this series.
Carolyn's writing is intelligent and descriptive. It makes me want to go visit these places the stories are set in, and see them for myself. I honestly expect to go to the Delta and find Dahlia House along a lonely country road!!
A bit of a warning, though - if you pick up this one, you just might get hooked on the whole series. Be prepared!!!
