A lonely young artist with a dangerous sideline results in murder
When Lalla and her dad take a trip to Arizona to inspect her new Arizona property, Dad disappears. Panicked that he's lost in the desert, Lalla enlists the help of a local tracker and finds him unharmed and in the bottom of a mine pit with a very dead local police chief.
Oddly, a young artist from an art colony up the road will be found strangled in her bed.
What're the chances that these two murders are going to be related?
Well, if you're Lalla Bains, you don't guess, you start looking for the killer!
What Reviewers are saying:
"When I see a book come up on my reading lists by RP Dahlke, I dive for them. I love her wit in her story telling. She develops great, believable characters that are easy to get to know ..." Pamela S, Amazon
"This was a WONDERFUL READ from start to finish! I started it at bedtime and figured it would help me fall asleep, but instead I stayed up all night finishing the book & didn't get any sleep at all. The characters descriptions & aspects of their personalities are sprinkled throughout the book, yet I have a perfect full picture of each one in my mind (I just love Pearlie & her spunk)! The plot/mysteries had me guessing & sometimes clueless. It's definitely NOT one of those books where 50 pages in you know "whodunnit" & then spend the next 200 trudging through what you already knew." By Karmela C Lyman, Amazon
