    Death Walked In Carolyn Hart Morrow, April 2008, $23.95, 304 pp. ISBN: 9780060724054 February in Broward¿s Rock, a South Carolina sea island is supposed to be quiet and relatively crime free now that the tourists have gone home. However business mogul Geoffrey Grant had much of his coin collection stolen and the appraised value was over half a million dollars. Max Darling, who almost got convicted for murder by a damsel in distress who elaborately framed him, got a call from a woman who needs help at his office Confidential Commissions. He refuses to take the call and comes to regret it when wife Anne goes to see the caller Gwen Jamison. Max¿s assistant called Anne and told her that Gwen put something in the Franklin House which Max and Anne are rebuilding and where Gwen was once the housekeeper. When Anne goes to Gwen¿s home she finds her dead body on the floor. A woman calls Anne who goes to the dock at night to meet her the woman tells her she knows who stole the coins because she saw the person bury the cache at her graveyard. Two more deaths follow over the next few days causing Max and Anne to investigate, not aware the killer is watching them. --- DEATH WALKED IN is an exciting investigative tale with a husband and wife team as the main protagonists. They are the reason the Death On Demand series is popular as their team-up smoothly blends amateur sleuth and professional detective elements and they are bold enough to follow the clues wherever they may lead. The romance has not gone out of their marriage and is interwoven into the storyline. Carolyn Hart has written a charming and well constructed mystery that her fans will appreciate. --- Harriet Klausner

    Love Death on Demand

    Very good story. All of the Death on Demand books are fun with not only a mystery but the history of mysteries. Love this series.

    Disappointing entry in the Death On Demand Series

    I look forward to each new Death on Demand book, for light, enjoyable reading with amusing characters and interesting plots. This latest entry was a disappointment. Although Annie and Max are present, most of the familiar, offbeat characters in this series are absent or make only brief appearances. I am always annoyed by people who claim that when reading mysteries they figured out "whodunnit" by Chapter 3, but in this case, it came true for me. At least, I became highly suspicious of one character's actions and was annoyed that Annie and Max did not come close to sharing my suspicions. I hope the next Death on Demand book is better.

    BUOY OH BUOY!

    In this classic mystery, with a South Carolina sea island backdrop, drama centers on the high-risk theft of precious gold coins, the tragedy of murder, and the price that evil must pay. DEATH WALKED IN delivers all the twists, turns, and thrills that Carolyn Hart fans look forward to. Annie and Max are restoring an antebellum mansion. She is feminine . . . and strong. He is sophisticated . . . and compassionate. Annie says, 'I wish our beautiful house wasn't part of a crime.' Max comforts her, 'Every old house has had its good days and its bad days. We're going to have good days. But we can't ignore trouble when we're right in the middle of it.' Even supporting characters leap off the page. I liked the high school principal who 'knew his students, the ones who failed as well as those who succeeded, and he never stopped trying to reach the ones who needed help.' When 'Death Walked In' at the end of the mystery, the encounter was unforgettable. This is the 18th book in the award-winning Death on Demand 'bookstore' series--a treat for readers who appreciate fine literary writing that makes your heart race with suspense. Fun to read and wonderful as a gift.

    Another fine mystery from Carolyn Hart

    All of the Death on Demand books, as well as Carolyn Hart's Henry O mysteries, are favorites of mine. Death Walked In is no exception. In addition to appreciating the plot lines and the fun characters in the Annie and Max 'Death on Demand' books, I much enjoy the author's descriptions of island living and the lush vegetation on Broward's Rock. I did miss characters Ingrid, Henny, Emma, and Laurel, who were all out of town for this book, but it was still great fun to read.
