A Discount for Death (Posadas County #2) by Steven F Havill

In this Posadas County mystery featuring Estelle Reyes-Guzman as the undersheriff, former sheriff Bill Gastner is peering out of the wings to which he dispatched himself upon retirement. For Estelle, coping with her new job and her family is still far from easy, and now she is faced the death of a young woman on a motorcycle—a death that may have been caused by improper driving by one of the county’s officers when he tried to stop her for speeding. Estelle soon learns there is more to this case than meets the eye, and now she must find her own way to solve the mystery of the woman’s death.

It¿s a quiet night in Posadas County, New Mexico as Undersheriff Estella Reyes-Guzman heads to her car when she notices a motorcycle being chased by a patrol car without the lights flashing or the sirens sounding. By the time she reaches the accident scene the young woman is dead and Patrolman Perry Kenderman tries to lie his way out of some potentially serious charges. Perry was angry at Colette Parker because she intended to run off with his younger brother and take her kids (one of whom might be his) with her. While this scenario occurs, local insurance dealer George Enriquez, who is under a grand jury indictment for fraud, is found in his office with a bullet in his head. The murder was clumsily made to look like a suicide. After giving temporary custody of Collette¿s two children to their grandparents, Estelle is free to work on the homicide investigation until it gets a little too close to home. Every visit to Posada County is an adventure and A DISCOUNT FOR DEATH is no exception. As one investigation winds down, another revs up so that readers find themselves unable to tear themselves away from this exciting police procedural thriller. Steven F. Havill is a talented writer who is an expert at creating believable characters and plausible plots. Harriet Klausner
