Black Diamond Death Summary

Black Diamond Death - "While I've found most mystery/thrillers to be rehashes of the same old plot line, this was refreshingly new/original." - Jack Murphy, New York Times bestselling author of Reflexive Fire

Charlotte Halliwell has a secret.

Before she has the chance to reveal it to her sister, Audrey, she's found dead. At first glance, it appears to be nothing more than an accident, until the medical examiner finds poison coursing through Charlotte's body. 

Audrey hires Sloane Monroe, a sassy, headstrong private investigator. As Sloane works to solve the case, a second body is found. With the killer aware that Sloane will stop at nothing to find him, he tracks her every move. Will Sloane uncover the truth before he strikes again?

If you're a fan of Sue Grafton and Mary Higgins Clark, you'll enjoy this fast-paced, page-turning mystery. A New York Times and USA Today bestselling series.
