Présentation de l'éditeur

When her vintage Cadillac is found tail-fins up in a nearby lake, the police ask Lalla Bains why an elderly widowed piano teacher, who couldn’t possibly see beyond the hood ornament, is found strapped in the driver’s seat.

All too soon, ex-model, aero-ag pilot, Lalla Bains will bounce from number one suspect to confidential informant in a bizarre murder case involving cross-dressers, drug running crop dusters and a crazy Chihuahua


"Wise-cracking detectives--from the rank amateurs who somehow stumble into the practice of investigating, to the licensed professionals with their fancy gizmos and snazzy Yellow Pages listings--are a dime a dozen in mystery novels... but a wise-cracking, ex-fashion-model, crop-dusting sleuth? That puts a quirky new spin on the genre, in R.P. Dahlke’s peppy debut, A Dead Red Cadillac. A Dead Red Cadillac may be Dahlke’s first published work, but it doesn’t read that way; the author is assured in her storytelling, crafting a witty, breezy, and thoroughly-entertaining lark peppered with interesting characters in a unique setting... and even tossing in some (much-appreciated) surprising twists along the way."
The Literate Kitty Blog spot 1/21/12

“Ex model and motorhead, Lalla Bains, pilots us through a murder investigation with more twists and turns than the coast highway and with an ending more satisfying than the purr of a perfectly tuned ’58 Cadillac.” Lesley Diehl, author of A Deadly Draught, Mainly Murder Press; Dumpster Dying, Oak Tree Press
“Fresh and fun! With its engaging, down-on-her-luck sleuth, homicidal Caddy and a decades-old mystery, R.P. Dahlke’s promising debut, A DEAD RED CADILLAC, will keep you turning those pages and guessing wrong right up to its surprising conclusion.” Kris Neri, Lefty Award-nominated author of REVENGE FOR OLD TIMES’ SAKE
“Fast paced and fun with an outwardly tough but inwardly vulnerable lady-pilot, drug smuggling and plenty of eccentric characters.” Rhys Bowen, award-winning author of the Molly Murphy and Royal Spyness mysteries. Bless the Bride, March 2011

I inadvertently bought book 3 in this series and enjoyed it so much I thought I’d start at the beginning and buy book 1.

The principal character is Lalla Bains, a twice-divorced ex-New York runway model who gave up the glamorous life to run her father’s aerial agricultural spraying business after his declining health made it obvious he could no longer do it.

Lalla is a magnet for trouble; she either finds it or it finds her. How she handles it makes for delightful reading. She’s sassy, she’s imaginative, and she can take care of herself, with the help of current love, Sheriff Caleb Stone.

Dahlke’s style of writing matches her heroine. It’s witty, sassy and imaginative. It flows easily with nothing along the way to pull you up short. The plot and story lines kept me turning the pages.

Nothing disappointing about this one!

HASH(0x8ecca9c0) étoiles sur 5 fast, fun, lightweight, but needs a line editor 17 janvier 2012
Par G. Cox - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
For some reason I kept imagining Cybill Shepherd playing the lead role. It would fit her previously played characters: smart sometimes, dumb sometimes, impulsive, loud, confrontational. It wasn't a heavy mystery, but it was fun. However, the author really, really needs a volunteer line-editor to find grammatical typos, repeated words, and what appear to be places where an edit left in the old text, too.

This book had a lot of promise but the inconsistencies, improbable behavior and some missing links were distracting. This didn't read like a final draft. Who edited this book??? A good editor could have improved this story a lot. Parts of the story were left hanging, references to a minor character named Brad kept popping up and I kept asking myself, " who the heck is Brad?" Some of the dialogue referred to facts that had never been previously mentioned, grammar errors, lots of examples... but it is too bad because there is a lot of promise in the character who is a beautiful but gutsy protagonist, and I liked the humor.

HASH(0x9112def4) étoiles sur 5 A fast and fun read 10 avril 2011
Par J. M. Orenduff - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
"I looked out the window at the same view I've seen for the last ten years and counting. I was bored with Modesto, bored with being Noah Bains' loser daughter, two loser marriages, loser modeling career and anything else I might try my hand at--but what else could a loser like me do? I was about to turn forty, right foot in a walking cast, cane on the left, a non-existent love life, living with a mono-syllabic father who had enough of his own hang-ups to put mine to shame."

Lalla Bains's situation get even worse when the police see the fins of her prized Cadillac sticking out of a lake and discover a body behind the wheel. As she sets about to figure out what happened, she proves her self-appraisal to be too harsh. She has spunk, intelligence, and common sense. The physical injuries - sustained when she crashed her crop-duster - will heal, but what about the emotional ones?

Dead Red Cadillac is a fast read with a likable hometown cast of characters we meet at Roxanne's Truck Café in Modesto. The mystery is well constructed and the dialog witty.

HASH(0x8f1ec600) étoiles sur 5 Needs polishing.... 27 novembre 2011

I liked the characters for the most part, but they are pretty cookie cutter. Female amateur sleuth type with love interest in law enforcement (why is that anyway?) stumbles into a murder mystery. Peppered throughout are supporting characters, some original, others not so much. The mystery itself wasn't bad, but there were a lot of disconnects - spoiler? - Did we ever find out why Eddy didn't just wait to be paroled? If so I missed it. And what was going on with Brad? That thread was left hanging too. I do believe this could be a good series with some polishing and proofing. There were inconsistencies in the time line. Lalla mentions that her brother died at 26. Then in another part of the book she mentions he was 10 years older than her, but then later (or earlier, I can't remember right now) she states that she was 20 when he died. The math doesn't work. Another part I had a really hard time swallowing was when she forgot it was her 40th birthday. Nobody forgets their 40th birthday - nobody. Doesn't happen. Ever. I don't care what else is going on.

Lalla Bains is a little rough around the edges, but it is for show only. An ex-model turning 40, with two bad marriages behind her. She is back home in Modesto, CA running the family crop dusting company, feeling down on herself. But when a murder of a woman happens she jumps into action to prove who is and who is not guilty. A cozy that is a fast read and will keep you turning pages to the end. I will certainly read the others in this series.
