The first book in Blackstock’s new Moonlighter series is intriguing, with a fast-moving plot. There are a large number of connected characters, and it is quite difficult to keep everyone straight, along with their relationships and complicated backstories. Here’s hoping that as the series progresses and more details are revealed, this will improve.

Cathy Cramer is a semi-retired lawyer who now writes a blog about investigations into homicides. Her own fiancé was murdered, and the killer never paid the price for his crime. Now her brother Jay is at the center of his own dilemma. His soon-to-be ex-wife is killed and he is the prime suspect. Can Cathy, her siblings and her fiancé’s siblings help bring the real killer to justice? (ZONDERVAN, Mar., 336 pp., $14.99)
