BLACK DIAMOND DEATH:
On the slopes of Park City, Utah’s newest ski resort a woman is found dead. At first glance, it has all the makings of an accident. But what if she was murdered? Although skeptical, PI Sloane Monroe takes the case and learns not everyone is who they seem, and some will go to any lengths to protect their identity.
PI Sloane Monroe has solved every case that’s come across her desk with the exception of one—the brutal murder of her sister Gabrielle. Three years have passed without a trace of the serial killer until today, when a young woman’s body is discovered on a patch of dirt in front of the local supermarket. Will Sloane exact her revenge before Sinnerman slays his next victim, or will she be too late?
I HAVE A SECRET:
It’s been twenty years since PI Sloane Monroe has returned to her hometown of Tehachapi, California, but when a former classmate is stabbed and tossed overboard during the high school reunion cruise, Sloane isn’t about to allow a murderer to run free in her own backyard. But in a town where everyone is harboring secrets, how many more men will die before she discovers the truth?
This was a freebie on Amazon and I thought I would give it a try, and I enjoyed it very much.
Sloane is a likeable character, a private investigator who gets herself into some interesting cases, but manages to alienate some in the police force along the way.
Add into the mix, a policeman boyfriend who is extremely jealous of her abilities, a mobster, who she is strangely attracted to, a whole range of different scenarios and you have a rich tapestry of well told, good old fashioned whodunnit’s.
I enjoyed the character of Sloane a woman who is troubled yet strong and confident, a woman I could relate to. I liked the subtle humour in the books and the flow, they didn’t drag and you wondered where the story would go next, the storyline kept on coming.
