Many thanks to Lauren and iRead Book Tours for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Absolutely banger of a premise which hit me hard, a thriller author, dead to the world, left a message for the main character to solve the murder of her ex-husband 40 years ago. A voice from the grave, was it? Or something more?
My first book by Lauren Carr was delightful. Solving the cold case based on pure detective work and getting to the witnesses who might not be alive today was a challenge. I got a thrill seeing the way each clue was looked at from different angles. Though part of a series, it didn’t matter much in the book.
The path was long and winded, with lots and lots of characters. That confused me quite a bit. I had to really concentrate to keep track. The characters really gave it their all. Emotions of greed and desperation were soon revealed. The ending was unexpected.
Intricate detailed plot lines, hidden clues, well-developed characters with real emotions, and a complete murder mystery made this a fun Sunday read.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

I’m working on the greatest mystery ever,” was the last thing noted mystery novelist Mercedes Livingston said to seven-year-old Chris Matheson before walking out of Hill House Hotel never to be seen again.
For decades, the writer’s fate remained a puzzling mystery until an autographed novel and a letter put a grown-up Chris Matheson on the trail of a cunning killer. With the help of a team of fellow retired law enforcement officers, each a specialist in their own field of investigation, Chris puts a flame to this cold case to uncover what had really happened that night Mercedes Livingston walked out of Hill House Hotel. Watch out! The clues are getting hot!
