KILLER IN CONTROL by Dorothy Francis
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: June 15, 2011

"Francis (Eden Palms Murder, 2008, etc.) has an insider's knowledge of Key West (Fast Buck Freddie's, Blue Heaven, etc.) that's a lot more impressive than her grasp of plotting and characterization. If you come for the scenery, don't expect to get hooked on the people or their activities."

COLD-CASE KILLER by Dorothy Francis
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: April 18, 2007
