A DECADENT WAY TO DIE
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth
G.A. McKevett is the pseudonym of Sonja Massie, the well-known mystery writer. The long-lasting Savannah Reid series is very well written and entirely enjoyable. There’s plenty of humor, but unlike some cozies the mystery is strong and intriguing. There is a moving, well done subplot of abuse against women.
Helene Strauss created a doll, which led to a very successful company. Now that she’s older, her niece has taken over the company and treats the 80-year-old founder with distain. Helene has several brushes with death, and Savannah is hired to find out who is trying to kill her. She finds the older woman surrounded by family eager to inherit — the sooner the better. Two deaths raise the danger level. Also, Strauss’s assistant has become involved with an unsavory boyfriend. (KENSINGTON, Feb., 304 pp., $24.00)
