Image of Watch Me Die

This book starts out atmospheric, with New Orleans color, and then the suspense ratchets up. This is a fine read for those wanting a fast-paced suspense with a little romance thrown in. Spindler is especially effective at conveying the shock of someone’s world turning upside down when they find that what they believed about people is not true.

Mira’s life hasn’t been the same since she lost her husband in the floodwaters of Hurricane Katrina. The only thing that gives her life meaning now is her work restoring the stained-glass windows of New Orleans. When some windows are vandalized and a priest is killed, Mira comes under police scrutiny. More murders, accompanied by biblical graffiti, seem to have Mira as the common connection. Mira becomes the killer’s target and the police’s prime suspect. She doesn’t know who to trust and fears that she’s losing her mind. (MINOTAUR, Jun., 352 pp., $24.99)
