TOWN RED

His partner is killed. His girlfriend takes off. His job is hanging by a thread...

Chicago Homicide Detective Ryan Doherty has one last chance to save his career-solving the case of Scott and Carly Redding, ad execs who each appear to have died of natural causes...on the same night. And there are hundreds of people who could've wanted the Reddings dead, including every ex-employee of their high-powered firm, Town Red Media.

At the top of the list is Catharine Lulling, a former VP at Town Red Media. Ryan becomes obsessed with Catharine: she is charming, intelligent, wealthy, and possesses psychic abilities he can't even understand. Drawn into her unconventional world, he risks the case-and his life-to find out if she's the real thing, or the real killer.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A Windy City cop works a high-profile murder case, but his feelings for a suspect complicate the investigation. One morning, a husband and wife turn up dead--she at their home in the tony Lincoln Park neighborhood, he at the office of Town Red Media, the ad agency they owned and ran with an iron fist. Ryan Doherty, the "top detective in Chicagoland," is on the case, and if he can't nab the killer quickly, his job is on the line. Assembling a list of possible suspects is easy since Scott and Carly Redding made a lot of enemies as they built their business. But could any of them have pulled off the crime? At first, it seems that both victims died of natural causes; there's little evidence at either scene, so if someone killed this power couple, they were smart enough to thoroughly cover their tracks. One person who might be able to help uncover the truth is Catharine Lulling, a former Town Red executive, now holed up in a lavish North Shore mansion. She left the company under unpleasant circumstances but retained stock options that made her a millionaire. Doherty finds it hard to believe that the enigmatic, "eccentric" Catherine (she claims to be psychic) could have anything to do with her ex-bosses' deaths. But there's a chance Doherty's attraction to Catharine blinds him to the truth. Is she hiding the killer's real identity or something else? Moss' page-turning debut novel is engrossing, with natural dialogue and a mystery that plays out in a mostly believable fashion, though the novel's paranormal elements never quite mesh with the more realistic aspects of the book. Overall, the story is more fluffy than gritty, but with a hero as compelling as Doherty, few readers--especially those who have a soft spot for tough cops with sensitive souls--are likely to complain. Dashes of humor balance the darker moments in the engaging whodunit, which will leave readers guessing until the end. Clever and fast-paced, this cocktail of romance and mystery goes down smooth with a nice finish.

Moss did an excellent job of character development, as well as doing her homework on cop-speak and police procedures. Not that I’m an expert, of course, but the story had a nice ring of truth to it. I felt authentic, as if the author did her research and knew what she was talking about when it came to things like police polices and interrogation of suspects. The plot has a lot of nice and interesting twists and turns to it that kept me reading long after I should have stopped.

own Red by Jennifer Moss was an extremely intriguing paranormal mystery. Not sure if that is a real genre, but that’s what I’d call it. Yeah, it did have some romantic elements, but that was a minor sub-plot and didn’t really detract from the intensity of the story. Actually, it seemed to have the best of both worlds.

    Great book!  The story keeps you guessing until the very end.  The writing is excellent, and the attention to detail really makes you feel like you're in the story.  I've never been to Chicago, but after reading the story, I feel like I'v recently visited the city.
    I checked out the author, Jennifer Moss, on Facebook.  It looks like she's working on a sequel.  Can't wait!
