But who would want to do such a despicable thing? And why? Was it a crazy fan? Someone seeking revenge for something? Her mentally ill son?
Alicia Fairfield didn't have any idea why anyone would be doing this, but it was tearing her apart. Then the phone calls began, and people began watching her. The police had better solve this mystery quickly. And besides the issues Alicia had, the next novel (assuming the killer sticks to his pattern) included seven murders!
Very enjoyable story. Easy to follow. Didn't end where I expected.
A HINT OF MURDER: THE DOCTOR: Dr. Russell Morgan was bound to be a suspect. After all, the murdered man was his patient, and he had been investigated in the past when his care of another patient had resulted in that person's death. But the good doctor was most assuredly not the only suspect.
“ ' What we got is too many suspects,' Frank said flopping down in a chair...... 'We got Bellville’s doctor and the head nurse that found Bellville, those two nurse interns, an orderly— ..... Plus the daughter.' "
So just exactly who DID kill the elderly gentleman who had come to this place of healing only to end up dead? You will have to find that out for yourself. But poor Mr. Bellville will not be the only victim. No indeed. There is a serial killer on the loose, and one doesn't even have to be terminally ill or severely injured to wind up dead in this place!
Another good story for you.
A HINT OF MURDER: THE BOUNCER: Tonight Bobby wouldn't be just the bouncer. Tonight he would make his singing debut. He had waited for this opportunity so long, and now Mike, the club manager, was on the stage to announce him. That's when his dreams came crashing down.
Poor Bobby. Two police detectives wanted Bobby to accompany them out back to discuss the murder of Allen Shaffer. He claimed he didn't do it. Sure, he had been there. But kill him? No way!
So who DID kill Allen Shaffer? Fortunately for Bobby, the police have several other possibilities: the wife, her lover, the butler (aka personal assistant), a business associate..... Which one had the reason to kill Allen?
This was another good whodunit. That makes 3 for 3 which means I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys light reading and whodunits. I was very pleasantly surprised!
EXCERPT - VigilAnnie: Sorry. I do not read or review the excerpts. Ever. I just don't.
(Bonus story) HOMELESS: Ted and Elsie were homeless. They hadn’t really planned on having an extra mouth to feed, but when Ted’s sister was killed by a drunk driver, they thought taking in Jack Jr. (JJ) was the right thing to do. At least for the moment they had found shelter from the rain in this warehouse. But they were starving.
There WAS a way out of this mess. Somewhere they could go. Finally Ted and Elsie decided they SHOULD go. Even JJ thought so. But where exactly IS this place that is going to be their salvation? Is it going to be worth the risk?
Find out for yourself as you read this very short story. I don't think you will have any idea about the way it will end.
There are three very different stories contained in this book. All are about murder and are being solved by the same detectives. The writer-Alicia is a mystery writer whose books are being mirrored in recent murders. The Doctor-a doctor is playing God with his patients health and the detectives are closing in. The Bouncer-a young man wants a shot at fame to escape the dead end job he has as a bouncer and glorified errand boy when a prominent business man turns up dead, the bouncer is suspect numero uno.
All the stories start out with an obvious suspect but there are interesting twists that will surprise the reader. I know I was amazed by the out comes in each story. I had a hard time putting the book down and was impressed with the connections. I recommend the book to anyone who likes a good mystery with an unexpected end. 5 sherriff stars for this one.
the stories remind me of the 70s detective shows that i still love. i can easily see Columbo solving these crimes. this is not to say that the stories are old fashioned. they are police procedurals and they have that no-nonsense feel from that era.
i liked the first one, The Writer, best. it caught me by surprise.
