My Review:Twelve to Murder (A Mac Faraday Mystery) by Lauren Carr


Twelve to Murder is latest Mac Faraday Mystery. It has good suspense, twists & turns, humor, Gnarly and gang. It makes you want to come back and visit. Lots of action, mysteries even some cold cases on the west coast. I did figure one case out but not the others.

Mac Faraday was left millions from his birth mother, Gnarly. Mac was a homicide detective. Now he helps out the local police chief when murders happen locally.

David O'Callaghan Police Chief and Mac's half brother. Their father was Police Chief for a bunch of years.

Gnarly a German shepherd is a thief and a smart dog.

The plot is a double murder with the victim writing a name in blood. David calls Mac into help. Then the suspect takes a bar hostage and asks for a famous fictional character that Mac's mom wrote that looks a lot like Mac. So Mac goes into help and he is told to solve the murder in twelve hours or he will kill all the hostages.

A minor plot is Mac and Archie have a fight sort of. She wants to plan the wedding and set a date. Everyone finds out and comments on it.

If your already a Mac Faraday fan you will want to get Lauren's newest mystery. If you have not read one do pick one up. It can stand alone.

The setting is a small resort town with a lot of rich peoples homes or second homes.
It is fast paced.
