I thought some of the characters were stretching my imagination until I realized that these people probably really do exist in our political society in some shape or fashion, and that is a very scary thought. How Mac and all his friends get to the bottom of the mystery and murder is fun to read, as well as funny. There are enough dark moments to fill our need in a mystery novel and enough lighthearted moments to get us through.
My only complaint with this novel is David's girlfriend. I didn't care for her and found her to be very immature and distracting. She grated on my nerves with her Jr. high school behavior. I hope that if she appears in future series, she will have done a lot of maturing. I don't see how she can last around the others if she doesn't. They are too adult, smart and sophisticated to put up with her for long...if they stay in character.
If you have read the other books in this series, you will enjoy being with with Mac and Co. again. If not, I urge you to start reading them. The time you spend with Mac and his family and friends will be time well spent.
(I was offered an ARC of this novel for my honest opinion. I offer you, fellow reader, my honest opinion. Nothing is worse than reading a book that is a real time waster, and this one wasn't. I read it in one sitting. My family had to have me read parts to them when I laughed out loud. We have a big dog and 4 big cats so the interruptions to my reading time were a sharing time to say, "Thank goodness that hasn't happened here, and DO Not let them get hold of my Kindle to see what was so funny! )
Three years later, disowned by her mother, Khloe returns to Deep Creek Lake, Maryland, after her mother's sudden death. Holed up in her mother's house, ready to make another play at notoriety with a stunning announcement, another unexpected event happens...her body is discovered in the house, stabbed to death and dismembered.
Mac Faraday, our resident rich man and detective, is on the case with his brother, David O'Callaghan, who is also the Chief of Police. But the victim's notoriety, as well as the agendas of several politicians and so-called friends, cripple the investigation and make the path to solving the case very challenging. Plus...a few previous victims seem to be connected to this one, leading them to realize that they are in pursuit of a serial killer(s).
Will Mac and David find their killer(s), or will they soon discover that this case has disturbing and complex elements that will take them down many twisted pathways? Will justice be served, or will the bad guys win out once again?
I enjoyed how other familiar characters cropped up here and there, like Archie, Mac's fiancee, and Chelsea, a former girlfriend of David's, who is slowly moving closer to forgiving him for past misdeeds. And from another Lauren Carr series (Lovers in Crime), Cameron Gates and Joshua Thornton show up to assist with the case, as some of the previous victims lived in their jurisdictions. They brought something delightful to the canvas, as they are newlyweds, trying to carve out alone time, even in the midst of all the mystery.
There could not be a story set in Deep Creek Lake without Gnarly, Archie's German Shepherd...and now that Chelsea is a resident, her dog Molly adds some fun to the mix. But when Cameron appears with her Maine Coon cat Irving...well, you can imagine the antics. I liked being able to laugh and smile in these light moments amidst all the frightening events.
The Lady Who Cried Murder: A Mac Faraday Mystery was another heart-stopping romp, and while the mystery and path to its solution were wonderful, I always love the characters as much as the suspense. Five stars.
Thank you Lauren for your great writing! Yes, I'm going to start on one of your other series, too; your writing is too much fun and is so smooth I just can't resist!
