Lauren Carr is at it again, and as always she never disappoints! This is the 4th book I have read by Lauren and I enjoyed it from beginning to end; this mystery thriller leaves you hanging up until the end! Her stories never cease to captivate me!
Mac Faraday is a retired homicide detective with his lovable German Shepherd dog Gnarly. With his mom's inheritance, he lives a very nice lifestyle not having to worry about money. He lives with his girlfriend Archie who I have come to love. They have an amazing relationship and are so perfect for one another. Mac's half brother David happens to be the chief of police who lives just in a cottage close by.
This book starts off with a sudden disappearance of Khloe Everest. After several days of her missing and a phone call that left her mom hanging, they reported it as an abduction. At a huge press conference, Khloe suddenly reappears and acts like nothing happens. Everyone knows that she did it for the fame and attention, which includes her ex-best friend and her mom. However, they can't prove that she wasted the police's time on this investigation which was saddening so they just left it as it was.
Fast forward 3 years - Khloe returns to Deep Creek Lane after her mother's death. After finding a tape that she could use for her own selfish reasons, she requested an interview so she could make a big announcement on TV. However, on the morning of the interview they found Khloe dead, murdered in a horrible way. Finding Khloe's murderer begins a long journey into secrets that have been buried for many years. Mac Faraday, David O'Callaghan, and many other characters are on the hunt for justice and answers. It wouldn't be a good story without twists and road blocks for them and believe me, there are plenty of challenging events that David and Mac experience!
I recommend this book to all mystery lovers! "The Lady Who Cried Murder" was another heart stopping thriller! While the mystery and the road to its solution was amazing, I truly enjoyed the cast and characters! Another great hit and I look forward to reading the next installment of Mac Faraday and his gang and what kind of drama they end up in!
