Nearly Departed in Deadwood (Deadwood, Bk 1)
Nearly Departed in Deadwood - Deadwood, Bk 1 Author:Ann Charles "The first time I came to Deadwood, I got shot in the ass."--Violet Parker
Little girls are vanishing from Deadwood, South Dakota, and Violet Parker's daughter could be next. She's desperate to find the monster behind the abductions. But if she's not careful, Violet just might end up as one of Deadwood's dearly departed.
This book isnt some Oprah winning earth moving novel, but it didn win an award for new mystery novel. This awards was well deserved. This mystery is on well written, well edited book. All the characters are likeable and memorable. Violet isnt some super sleuth who gets into the police's investigation. She is just a single mother of twins trying to make a living selling real estate in Deadwood. Deadwood seems to have a serial killer who is kidnapping blonde girls. The back of the book alludes to Violet being worried about her own daughters safety.
The only character I hated was her antagonizing co-worker Ray. Who should be slapped with a sexual harassment suit, but then again every books needs someone to poke at the chinks in our heroines armor.
I want BOOK 2!!! I need to know what happens next.
