MISSING PERSONS by Clare O'Donohue
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: May 31, 2011

Kate Conway's assignment for a new show, Missing Persons, starts with the case of Theresa Moretti, a young nurse who's been AWOL for a year. Kate's life is a bit of a disaster since she split with her husband Frank, a talented but feckless charmer she met in high school. When he suddenly dies, Kate becomes the chief murder suspect when the police learn that she's due to receive a big life-insurance settlement and an autopsy shows an overdose of digitalis. Kate likes Frank's girlfriend Vera, an apparently nice person from a very wealthy family whom Kate meets at the hospital the night of Frank's death. But Frank's parents want Kate to find out if Vera murdered him, and Frank's best friend complicates the situation further by telling Kate that Frank had been hoping for reconciliation with her. In the meantime, Kate finds herself more involved in the case of the missing girl, who was not nearly as angelic as her mother claimed. When Theresa's body is found, Kate has a plethora of suspects, including Theresa's volatile brother, various boyfriends and a wealthy lawyer who seems suspiciously eager to help. Kate's finely honed interviewing skills will be necessary to find a killer and clear herself in Frank's death. Read full book review >
