A BAD DAY FOR MERCY
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery
A new Stella Hardesty novel is always cause for celebration. The thoroughly likable, middle-age vigilante heroine is up to her usual tricks, this time in the service of her own family. With a fully realized supporting cast of characters, pitch-perfect prose and good balance between humor and dangerous goings-on, Littlefield has another winner on her hands.
Stella heads to Wisconsin to check on her step-nephew, who’s apparently in mortal danger because of some gambling debts. She breaks into his house after hearing strange noises and finds him and his girlfriend dismembering a body on their kitchen table. They claim they found him already dead when they got home and Stella squashes her suspicions long enough to look into matters. (MINOTAUR, Jun., 260 pp., $24.99)
