Product description

Product Description

Murder doesn’t happen here.

Serenity is the safest, little town in Colorado. But residents are dropping like flies. No big deal. Accidents happen.

Detective Dennis Haggarty is there to comfort his recently widowed sister, not investigate a homicide. However, finding a corpse means he can’t avoid doing his job—especially since the local authorities are determined to disregard the facts. Delving deeper, he finds a string of deaths everyone wants to ignore even when all the evidence points to murder. Lucky for the detective, one person in town seems rational enough to help him.

Too bad she’s his prime suspect.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Accidental" murder at its best! 10 June 2015
By P. James - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"Murder doesn’t happen here." Murder *never* happens in a small town. Ha! I grew up in a small town and life there is a condensed version of living in a big city, with everything much more "up close and personal." Enter big-city police detective Dennis Haggerty. He comes to Serenity, Colorado to comfort his sister after losing her husband. Homicide is the last thing on his mind, until he stumbles across a corpse. And things just get curiouser and curiouser. *waggles brows*

B.E. Sanderson is an exciting and entertaining new voice in the mystery and suspense landscape. The suspense is tight, the mystery compelling, and the characters are just who they need to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Serenity Is Not What it Appears 21 August 2015
By Linda - Published on

Great story. I love this author and it looks like we will see more of Detective Haggarty in some form. If you like fast moving stories with lots of quirky characters, you'll like this one. The story opens with a funeral in a small town. The husband of the sister of the main character has died suddenly. Then more deaths occur of many of the town's prominent citizens. Too many to believe accidents. Upon investigation, much is revealed, read it. I'm sure you will like it.

Small town secrets, familial dysfunction and a serial killer on the loose make ACCIDENTAL DEATH a suspenseful, twisty mystery that kept me guessing until the end!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing and enjoyable 18 July 2016
By Dee Loves Books - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Detective Dennis Haggarty leaves his Denver home and travels to the small Colorado town of Serenity to be with his sister Kimmy for her husband's funeral. He's expecting it to be a quiet place where nothing much happens. He's wrong. It's freezing cold and he can't wait to leave the awkwardness between himself and his sister and return back to Denver and his job. However a local woman who he meets briefly at the funeral dies in what is considered by the local police as an accident but Dennis isn't so sure and comes to the conclusion that there are secrets in this small town that he feels compelled to reveal.

I really enjoyed this book, from him digging into the townsfolk's lives to try and get to the bottom of what is really going on to his cautious relationship with a local widow who is the object of his sister and other townspeople's gossip. An intriguing story that builds and culminates in a twist that I didn't see coming.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Denny Haggerty mysteries please! 11 October 2015
By kybookworm - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
When Denver police detective Dennis Haggerty travels to the small Colorado town of Serenity, he only expects to spend a couple of days with his estranged sister, Kimmy, while she deals with burying her recently deceased husband. On his way to the visitation he meets another recent widow and a woman dies in a fall during the visitation. He soon learns there’s been a string of deaths in the small town, all ruled either natural or accidental. The statistical improbability of so many deaths in a short time in such a small town, along with his gut instincts, leads Dennis to believe there’s a serial killer loose in Serenity.

When he tries to convince the police chief that there’s more to the deaths than meets the eye, he’s met with resistance and encouraged to leave town. Dennis is nothing if not stubborn, and he keeps poking and prodding into the town’s secrets. But when he finds himself falling for his prime suspect, his investigation gets even more complicated than it already was.

An Accidental Death: A Dennis Haggerty Mystery pulls the reader in on the very first page and doesn’t let go. While the story is engrossing and the solution a real killer, the characters are what really makes this novel a keeper. From persistent Denny to whiny Kimmy to independent Jillian to the incompetent police chief and all the other characters who populate small towns everywhere, each comes across as a real person. Based on the title, it sounds like there will be more Dennis Haggerty mysteries. I’ve read another book, Dying Embers, by this author and loved it, too, so I’ll be first in line for another Dennis Haggerty mystery!
