Publisher's Summary

Murder hits close to home for Death on Demand bookstore owner Annie Darling and her beloved husband, Max. While investigating a new case, Max calls Annie to let her know he may be late getting home. He never shows up. Annie knows something dreadful has happened to him. During the search for Max, his car is found on a remote road: with a murder weapon in the trunk and a beautiful but very dead young woman nearby. The case becomes a media sensation with Max portrayed as an unfaithful husband willing to kill to get rid of a mistress. As the evidence against Max continues to mount, chief of police Billy Cameron is called off the case. But Billy risks his career to continue the hunt for a silver car briefly seen following Max's on the night of the murder, and Annie is forced to go undercover in a desperate attempt to clear her husband's name. Risking her life, she enters the victim's unfamiliar world in the hopes of understanding how and why Max is involved. With time running out, Annie has one last chance to capture a wily murderer who just may have committed the perfect crime.


What the Critics Say

"Her plan of attack is similar to that employed by many spy novelists: start with a dizzying series of short scenes introducing characters, zero in on one person in particular trouble, and spend the rest of the novel spellbinding the reader with plot intersections." (Booklist)

Seek and You Will Find

What made the experience of listening to Dead Days of Summer the most enjoyable?

I truly enjoyed the story-line. First half of the book was very quick paced then second half slowed down to give details. Not bad.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The performance was good but I still have problems with the way certain characters are read. Some times that whinny is irritating.

Any additional comments?

I do think that this is a nice summer or even under the covers in winter read. You will enjoy it.
