Monday mornings are usually slow for the Lansing, Michigan Police Department, but this particular Monday morning turns nightmarish when the murdered and mutilated body of Michigan State Senator Simon Young is found in his office. When the body is turned over, a mark where a needle was inserted is found right below the back of his neck. Sophie is lead detective on this case, and it's her first case working without Manny Williams. She will work with Lansing's head CSI, Alex Downs and there is the possibility of the state police getting involved, too.
No sooner have Sophie and Alex gotten to work when a young woman in a wheelchair shows up, wearing a blouse that is covered in blood. She introduces herself as Allison Young, the wife of the murdered senator. How she got the blood on her clothes is only one part of a multitude of strange behaviors and motives that are part of this fast-paced and exciting story in which Sophie will have to weed out the killer from among several people with motives.
Sophie Lee hasn't lost her sense of humor, even with a gruesome case like this one. She's divorced and free, and loves her new implants. This is a short story that will keep you reading all the way through, turning the Kindle pages as fast as you can. If you've read the CARIBBEAN MOON mysteries, you'll love getting to know Sophie Lee and her jokes, as well as her detective skills, even better in this story. And you just might find a few twists at the end.
You do not need to read all 6 books, but you should. you will definitely appreciate it as a set, which I did. And I do not regret it. My only regret is that I have to wait for Rick to publish the next book so I can see how Manny and Chloe and everyone else are and what they have been up to.
The characters were great, you loved the ones you should, and hated the ones you shouldn't. All the main characters worked so well together. the plot thickened where and when it had to. The author kept you guessing and one surprise happened right after the other. Never a dull moment for Manny and his team OR his family..
Here are all the books in the order to read them
Capital Murder - this is a short story pulls books 3 & 5 together
Caribbean Rain - 5
Carolina Rain - 6
A great read ---- ALL OF THEM.
This one came up short in my opinion, lacking both the Machiavellian schemes of the three full-sized novels and the main detective, and then rehashing a plot that would make Dame Agatha Christie roll her eyes and utter a refined sigh.
The character Sophie Lee is clearly better at playing second fiddle to the brilliant Manny Williams, and after lots of stilted dialogue, finally gets around to solving the case. My advice would be that you not dwell on this short, but wait instead for the next true Manny Williams novel.

Sophie Lee takes center stage in this mystery, instead of Manny Williams. With little time in a short to develop characters, they are pretty well defined here.
This single is very entertaining and actually runs pretty much the entire % length. Many shorts stop abruptly half-way through. This one does not.
One word of caution: Read the epilogue. If not, much of the end of the story may not fully come together. A lot is explained in the epilogue. It's a fast read which is worth the time.
