Swimming into the lifeless body of her husband’s mistress tends to ruin a woman’s day, but becoming a murder suspect can ruin her whole life.
It’s 1974 and Ellison Russell’s life revolves around her daughter and her art. She’s long since stopped caring about her cheating husband, Henry, and the women with whom he entertains himself. That is, until she becomes a suspect in Madeline Harper’s death. The murder forces Ellison to confront her husband’s proclivities and his crimes—kinky sex, petty cruelties and blackmail.
As the body count approaches par on the seventh hole, Ellison knows she has to catch a killer. But with an interfering mother, an adoring father, a teenage daughter, and a cadre of well-meaning friends demanding her attention, can Ellison find the killer before he finds her?
The first book of this wonderful series starts off with a bang when Ellison Russell, socialite, swims right into the dead body of her husband’s mistress. You would assume that Ellison would be suspect number one but strangely enough her husband has gone missing as well.
This story takes our heroine from the halls of the country club to the back alley sex club.
This was an excellent mystery and I do not want to spoil it for you. All I will say is that YOU MUST READ THIS! It is an awesome story with a cunning adversary and a courageous protagonist.
If you love all those cop shows from the 70’s, cop shows in general or anything that is mystery related. You will love this. Check it out.
I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank Net Galley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
