A DARCY LOTT MYSTERY
By Susan Dunlap
Counterpoint, August 2009 ($25)
Reviewed by Cherie Jung
Darcy Lott is a stuntwoman. Her brother Gary is a lawyer in San Francisco. Her brother John is a cop. Gary asks Darcy to entertain Karen Johnson, one of his clients, without telling John about her. Karen claims she's getting a divorce but Gary isn't a divorce lawyer. In short order, Karen is dead. Things quickly become more complicated. Karen had several aliases. John is a suspect in a murder.
Fast-paced and exciting, this book will have you turning pages as fast as you can read them. There'll be no putting the book aside to finish reading later. From the time Gary asks Darcy for a favor, the suspense just keeps building right on through until the ending. There are enough twists and turns to keep most readers wondering, "Who was Karen, really?"
Susan Dunlap is the award-winning author of twenty novels and a collection of short stories but this is the first book of hers that I've read. I'm certainly going to read more of her books now. I hope there will be another Darcy Lott mystery soon.
