Wow! The week has flown by, and I haven’t done much blogging. So I’m happy to share from a book I’m reading: Twelve to Murder, by Lauren Carr. We’re back in Deep Creek Lake, Maryland, with Mac Faraday and friends.
Stillman Mansion on Deep Creek Lake, Maryland
“Austin is back this year,” Olivia said in rhythm with the pace she had set for her power walk.
Two paces behind his wife, Roland took note of the white stone mansion along the chilly lakeshore. The mansion looked all closed up. All was quiet, as it was with many of the estates along the lake in the early spring.
56: The smile that had come to the corners of his lips disappeared. Sheriff Turow thrust a finger in the police chief’s direction as if to make his point. “You’ve screwed up things enough for one day, O’Callaghan.”
Blurb: Two people are brutally murdered in their summer place on Deep Creek Lake. Suspected of the murders, former child star and one-time teenybopper idol Lenny Frost takes innocent bystanders hostage in a local pub and demands that Mac Faraday find the killer. Can Mac save the hostages and himself from the wrath of the enraged has-been by piecing together the clues in less than twelve hours, or will it be a fatal last call at the stroke of midnight?
What do you think? Does it grab you? I know that I am always eager to find out more about Mac Faraday and the characters of Deep Creek Lake.
