Inherit the Dead by Lee Child, C. J. Box, Charlaine Harris, John Connolly, Mary Higgins Clark

Searching for a missing person is not high on Perry's list of things he wants to do.  However, since he's been thrown off the police force and has no other jobs, it's better than nothing.  And Mom appears to have big bucks, so he should have no trouble getting paid.

Touchstone and Edelweiss allowed me to download this ebook for review (thank you).  It was published the first part of this month, so you can find a copy at your local bookstore now.

This type of novel always fascinates me.  Each author does a chapter and the story evolves as it goes along.  This type of cooperative story telling seems like it would have bumps and chunks that don't quite fit together.  It never turns out that way.  Each chapter fits together nicely and the story turns out to be more interesting because of the different author tastes it is enhanced with.

Angel is a beautiful sexy young woman who is used to getting her way.  Everyone is mesmerized by her, even Perry.  He knows better, but she's a package any man would like to open.  The problem is she's no real angel...

This story had an usual twist at the end and I liked that.  It made the story make sense in an odd way and it showed Angel's true nature.

Why not take a step from stone to stone (one chapter to another) and see how well these various authors tell their tales?  If you love mysteries and family drama, you'll find it here.

Happy reading.
