This is a Mac Faraday Mystery
I like Lauren's mysteries. I can usually figure out a little piece but never all of it.
There lots of twists,turns,lots of dead bodies,lots of bad guys,lots of good guys and Gnarly too.
There are a lot of characters in this book, most of them are new ones. At the start she has a list of characters and a little about them. I always like that when thier are lots to keep straight.
Kendra Douglas witnesses a murder and testifies against a mob boss. She goes into the witness protection and twelve years later she has been found.
Her boyfriend has no idea she was part of the program untill she killed two killers with her pink gun.
Ramdi Finnegan Marshall who is in charge of protecting Archie wants to move her. No one agrees to be moved. Randi and David O'Callaghan Spencer's police chief fight. Archie does not want to change her name and move again. She does move into the mansion and shares Mac Faraday room.
Randi and David find the leak in the Marshall's office but she is already dead.
Mac gets some of the security guys from his 5 star hotel to help guard Archie with the local police.
Thier are a lot of people who end up walking Gnarly when Archie goes out to walk the dog.
Gnarly brings a lot of humor into the story, from flushing his stolen rubber duckie in the toliet. Too taking down the bad guys and making good friends with a shy little girl who only talks to him.
I think I would take the ice cream cone from Sari and get her a new one over sharing it with Gnarly each taking a lick at a time.
Thier end up being lots of different murder scenes and Spencer is a small police department. While David is working one scene and Bogie is at the manor with Archie. Mac gets a badge and David clothes to go work a different murder scene. He does not like the husband but he has a great witness for his alibi Mac.
They have to figure out who killed who at which murder scene. Which case is the Marshalls or FBIs and which ones are for the local police.
Lots of Drama,action,murder and humor. I did not want to put the book down till I had finshed it.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
