On My Nightstand - Before Another Dies by Alton Gansky
Complications and danger stalk her footsteps as a murderer strikes three times in three days. What's a mayor to do? If you're Maddy, you start looking for answers.
A tantalizing mystery with enough red herrings to feed a very large fish, this story kept me going down the wrong path. Only when Maddy discovered the killer's identity did I find out whodunit.
The author did a great job with Maddy and the other characters. A little romance, a lot of inner turmoil, and a dangerous villain kept this book at the boiling point.
I'm looking forward to reading the third book in the series. It shot to the top of my Wish List after reading the first two stand-alone novels. I'm wondering what other trouble this likable mayor will face. If I were her, I'd consider retiring and moving to another part of the country.
