    Another Casey Mayes Bomb

    I thought Deadly Row was bad, but this was worse. If Savannah's friend Jenny said "trust me" one more time I was going to throw the book across the room. Skipped ahead to the end. Tim Myers, the real author of this book is a far better author than this garbage indicates.

    QUITE A MYSTERY!!!!!

    Savannah Stone, math puzzle master extraordinaire, and her husband retired police chief Zach are into it up their eyeballs again.

    Savannah has gone to Raleigh to meet with Derrick Duncan, her puzzle editor and syndicator. The only part of the trip she is looking forward to is seeing old college roommate Jenny Blake. She really would like to be able to free herself of the contract she has with Derrick. He definitely would make the list of worst bosses ever, but she has adapted to handling him and besides the contract is airtight.

    As she arrives for her meeting, another columnist is storming out of the conference room, another is waiting on a bench outside clearly nervous. Savannah thought this was a routine meeting. She is quite surprised when Derrick notifies her they will be no longer working together. He has sold her contract to another syndicate. She doesn't take the news well and unfortunately her reaction was seen by others.

    After she leaves and cools down she decides to go back and try to salvage her career. She is too late, someone took the news worse than her. Derick is dead and she is caught by security standing by the body. She knows she didn't do it so with the help of Zach and Jenny she is determined to find out who subtracted Derrick from the population.



    I have fallen hard for Savannah and Zach. Their marriage and relationship in general shows how the truly compliment each other. Savannah can fly off the handle or rush head first but Zach is there calm and cool and settles her down and makes her think things through. She also helps him open his eyes to little things he is missing too. They make a really great team.


    There is also a subplot featuring Jenny that adds real dimension to the story. All three of the main characters in this story are very strong and it is nice to read a story like this. Even the police involved realize who they are dealing with and work with instead of against them.


    I also have to say I will not miss Derrick one bit. If I could have jumped into the pages, I would have been a prime suspect. With that being said I am curious to see how the couple moves forward, who will be the next victim? Who will be the subject of the next mystery? At the moment I am puzzled but trust the author will tempt me with their next Mystery By The Numbers.
