William Cainabout this book: This is Book 1 in the series. Book 2 has already been published and Book 3 is underway.
This series features a female protagonist as a detective assigned to a case of a murdered woman. The woman is married to a dangerous, retired mobster. The investigation leads the detective to Miami and Chicago to interview leads involving criminals and contract killers, all likely to be involved, as the mobster has many high profile enemies. The identity of the killer is quite a surprise, but the story is peppered with clues, so there's no 'that's a dumb ending' and the feeling that you've just read a baseless novel.
As the series progresses into the later books, Detective Adelaide Henson is tested, but determined, and solves case after case. Each new book presents a mystery that is harder to solve than the last, leading the reader to challenging and puzzling cases. And, with each new book Henson's character becomes more real as she grows into the strong woman she is.
The setting is Asheville, North Carolina. And, the book brings out the Blue Ridge Mountains in many ways. Over the course of the time throughout the seasons change and the reader will feel and see, as the writer feels and sees.
