Henrie O is a wonderful character. She is an older person than the normal detective and her wisdom and spunk makes these books a joy to read. I have read all and am now impatiently waiting for Ms Hart to write her next Henrie O book.
I like Carolyn Hart so, of course, enjoyed this one. Who is trying to kill millionaire Chase Prescott? It can only be a close family member, a trusted business associate, or a long-time household staff member. Interesting story, lots of twists and turns in this one.
Terrific mystery. I never would have figured out whodunit.
Henri O collins is a widow who has recieved a call from an old boyfriend to come to his private island in South Carolina because he thinks someone is trying to kill him. Henri O is a retired journalist.
This is a really good book I though.
A Southern Mystery for Henrietta (Henry) O!
A very complex murder mystery with a surprise ending. A retired female investigative reporter is a refreshing change as protagonist. Richly drawn characters.
As a fan of Hart's Death on Demand series, I found this first book in her other series equally as good. Henrie O is classic sleuth and this book kept me guessing till the end.
A good read................
At first I didn't think I'd care for this one as it seemed to be yet another "rich and famous" story in the beginning, but this was a terrific start to this series! So many twists and turns to the plot and a very surprising ending!
Highly enjoyable read!
When arrogant media magnate Chase Prescott is nearly killed by a box of cyanide laced candy, he dials his long-ago lover, retired newshound Henrietta O'Dwyer Collins, with a simple request: he'll assemble all the suspects if Henrie O will kindly point out the would-be murderer. It's a case - her first - that fills Henrie O with grave misgivings, espcially when she arrives on Chase's private island off the South Carolina coast to meet the players in this deadly drama. Between Prescott's unstable young wife, his sullen stepson and his toady of a secretary, she has trouble narrowing the field of suspects - even when a second attempt is made on Chase's life. As Henrie O unearths a will and fascinating new evidence, a killer hurricane sweeps up from Cuba, threatening to maroon them in this vacation hell ... where the trappings of luxury are put to lethal use and the secrets of the past have the power to engulf them all.
