An elderly woman is found murdered in her apartment. Cause of death; a single gunshot wound to the chest. The only door is locked from the inside. There are no signs of entry, no bullet holes in the walls, and no weapon is recovered from the scene. That's when Detective Lana Denae of the Portland Police Bureau is assigned the case. The investigation gets off to a slow start until she realizes there is more to the story than a single random murder. Someone is looking to rake in a profit to the tune of more than a million dollars, and they are willing to do whatever it takes to get it. Lana is determined to stop the killer before he strikes again but with limited evidence, finding just who is responsible is more difficult than she imagined.

Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite Dead Broke (Lana Denae Mysteries) (Volume 1) by Bruce A. Borders is a wholesome, entertaining, and easy to read mystery murder story. Lana Denae is a detective with the Portland Police. She enjoys her job and likes working alone, but when her latest investigation ties into the mystery that Detective Jamie and Damien are working on, they join forces to solve the killings. It is her take charge attitude that has them following her leads through all of the twists and turns of the case. Lana’s murder victim is an elderly woman and Jamie and Damien are dealing with the killing of several people who have been thrown off a bridge overlooking her window. Millions of dollars, false identities, and overseas accounts are just a few of the things that turn up as the trio looks for clues and answers. Dead Broke was hard to put down because each page filled in a piece of the puzzle. I never saw the ending coming, but it was an “of course” moment that made so much sense. I have chosen not to give you too many details because I do not want to ruin the mystery for you, but I can say that you will be glad you took the time to read Dead Broke. Bruce A. Borders filled two hundred and sixteen pages with a great cast of characters and a well written story that is hard to put down. The cases of Lana, Jamie and Damien would make a wonderful weekly TV show. I anxiously await volume two in this series and highly recommend this book.
