Lauren Carr

International Best-Selling Mystery Author 

"Carr is a clever weaver of tales,  merged with bits and pieces of humor interspersed to lighten the dark moods as murder and fear of a kidnapped family member drive each into action to do whatever is necessary to bring everybody safely home... Her storylines are unique in each and every book and amazingly grabs and pulls readers into each and every word she writes. You are missing a great writer if you don't read Lauren Carr! Highly Recommended!"

It’s a bittersweet reunion for Mac Faraday when members of his former homicide squad arrive at the Spencer Inn. While it is sweet to attend the wedding of a late colleague’s daughter, it is a bitter reminder that the mother of the bride had been the victim of a double homicide.

The brutal slaying weighing heavy on his mind, Mac is anxious to explore every avenue for a break in the cold case—even a suggestion from disgraced former detective Louis Gannon that one of their former friends is the killer.

When the investigator is brutally slain, Mac Faraday rips open the cold case with a ruthless determination to reveal which of his friends is a cold-blooded murderer.
