Marley Clark, a retired military intelligence officer, works security for a Sea Island community simply to keep busy. A single night patrol transforms the feisty widow's yawner of a job into a deadly battle of wits when she finds an islander drowned and bobbing naked amid a potpourri of veggies in a Jacuzzi.
Asked to serve as the lead investigator's liaison, the 52-year-old heroine is startled to discover she's become Deputy Braden Mann's target as well-for romance. Yet their steamy attraction doesn't deter the pair from sorting through a viper's nest of suspects as the body count grows and the pun-loving killer plans a grizzly epitaph for Marley.
DEAR KILLER is the first in a series of Marley Clark adventures that combine heart-pounding suspense with generous sides of romance and humor.

Loved this book!
This is a great action packed mystery. The narrator did a wonderful job of capturing Marley's independent spirit and the author's terrific dialogue. Humor, romance and mystery are a great combination.

Solid page turner
Solid mystery and suspenseful. Marley was well developed, as an audacious and intrepid detective, which seemed credible since she was a former military colonel. She was forever resourceful in unconventional ways.
Constant plot twists and murders. Marley was always on the brink of calamity and that coupled with a steady string of murders kept the pace moving.
Excellent narration, masterful with gender voice changes and accents.
Welcome to have the woman as always the rescuer, but it made Braden a bit inept, especially at the end. He might have been a bit more skillful at helping Marley out.
