DEAD DAYS OF SUMMER
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth
South Carolina bookstore owner Annie Darling and her P.I. husband, Max, get involved in a murder investigation that hits very close to home.
In the 17th installment of Hart's Death on Demand series, Max is in hot water when he wakes up in an abandoned cabin covered in blood while investigating a missing-person case. The body of Bridget Walker, the woman who hired him to find her brother, is found nearby, and police arrest him and charge him with the killing, convinced he was having an affair with Bridget. Max can't remember much about what happened, but believes that he may have been drugged at a bar as he and Bridget searched for her brother. To complicate matters, it turns out Bridget wasn't really who she claimed to be.
As the tension -- and the media attention -- builds, Annie stands by her man, going undercover to prove his innocence and find the real killer. Captivating intrigue and a riveting mystery will keep readers engrossed in this suspenseful tale. (Apr., 288 pp., $23.95)
