ALONE IN THE DARK
This thriller explores the sometimes uncanny bond between twins. Good characterization and some nice red herrings enliven the plot, but the heroine's occasional stubbornness in the face of peril is a slight distraction. Still, with extremely likable protagonists, this is
an enjoyable read.
Although her introduction to rancher Clint Littleton leaves them both snarling, the discovery that Susan was his sister-in-law ties them together. Clint suspects that his brother Clay's "accidental" death was also murder but can't prove it. It doesn't take long for the threatening calls to start. Is this the work of a crank, or is Susan's killer stalking Ellery? (POCKET STAR, Oct., 358 pp., $6.99)
