Overview

Annie Darling - owner of the mystery bookstore, Death on Demand - prefers fictional crimes as opposed to the real things. But in one tragic week, two acts of violence shake the island community of Broward’s Rock. First, a beloved doctor is found shot dead, seemingly by his own hand. Only days later, a local artist is arrested after his wife is murdered. Convinced her brother did not commit suicide, the doctor’s sister turns to Annie and her husband, Max, for help. She has found a cryptic sketch her brother drew, linking him with the murdered woman. With the police considering both cases as good as closed, it’s up to Annie and Max to sort through a rogues’ gallery of suspects to see if someone is trying to frame the artist.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
03/03/2014
In Hart’s engaging 24th Death on Demand mystery (after 2013’s Dead, White, and Blue), bookstore owner and sleuth Annie Darling is convinced that the apparent suicide of a local doctor and the murder of Jane Corley, an imperious, wealthy 30-something, are connected. Jane’s husband, Tom Edmonds, a painter and sculptor, is the logical suspect, not least because his mallet was the weapon that did Jane in. But is Tom really behind the sudden spate of deaths in tiny Broward’s Rock, S.C.? Perhaps the killer is Tom’s lover, Frankie, who seems to realize that Tom would never leave his wife. Or perhaps Jane was murdered by Kevin Hubbard, an employee suspected of malfeasance at her company, Corley Enterprises—or by Kevin’s wife, who stands to lose a lot if her husband’s shenanigans are exposed and his livelihood threatened. Understated local color and a charming cast of supporting characters will keep Annie’s fans glued to the page. Agent: Deborah Schneider, Gelfman Schneider Literary Agency. (May)

    I bought a Carolyn Hart book @ a yard sale, that's all it took!

    I bought a Carolyn Hart book @ a yard sale, that's all it took! What a writer! Now I am trying to get all the ones she has out there. Reading the Bailey series now, I need to get all her Death on Demand books & slowly but surely I will. I started out w/writers like Victoria Holt & have a my own well stocked library of fiction & nonfiction books. Every now & then it's good to read a series of fiction & this writer has won me over. I have been reading forever & know a good write when I come across one & she is a "Darn Good Writer!" Complete w/who done it & a little humor, it's a treat to add her to my library & I hope who ever gets my books treasures them as I do. Oh, I put Carolyn Hart right up there w/Sue Grafton & an old favorite of mine Dorothy Eden! Never leave the house w/o a book is my motto & this writer will not let you forget her book......very, very good writer.

    Suggest prequel for series is getting stale and lost humor

    Marriage often limits a series and frankly hubby here and his mother is a drag just say she is getting fat might help if she stopped with fried foods

    Loved It As Usual

    I really enjoy the Death On Demand series. This one was no exception. The characters are interesting and the plot kept me guessing. Can't wait for the next one.
