Editorial Reviews


"Along with Tom, Mike, Diana, and Jennifer, this group seems to be able to crack the cases as fast as Elizabeth seems to find bodies...dead bodies. Great suspense books with plenty of suspects to keep our group...and the reader...guessing." -- Barnes & Noble 5-star review

"McLinn is a master at making her characters so real that you begin to see them as living, breathing human beings. Even the dog has a personality that is endearing. This book will stand alone, but to really appreciate these characters, starting with the first book in the series will give you better insight into all the players and how they fit in." -- Amazon 5-star review

"I really really like these characters. More please." -- Amazon 5-star review
