“Give him enough rope and he will hang himself.” – Charlotte Bronte When Elliot Carter is found hanging from a tree dressed in women’s clothing, the authorities are convinced it is sex-play gone wrong. Elliot’s friend, Tom Halloran, is dead-set against this idea and thinks Elliot was murdered. Hollis Joplin, the Medical Examiner’s investigator, is trying to keep an open mind. The police can’t investigate unless the death is ruled a homicide, so Joplin looks deeper into Elliot’s life. When others close to Elliot start dying, Joplin knows there is something to Halloran’s gut feeling. Searching through the past will give clues to solving the current crimes, but in doing so Halloran and Joplin will catch the eye of a cunning killer. ENOUGH ROPE is a labyrinthine tale of murder, lust, revenge, and secret histories. I really liked how this mystery wasn’t easy to solve and had many complicated moving parts. There were many suspects and differing information which gave Joplin a lot to chew over. I understand where Halloran was coming from, not wanting to believe his friend accidently hanged himself, but he made the investigation so much more difficult for Joplin. I loved watching all the puzzle pieces fall into place, it’s one of the reasons I love good mysteries. ENOUGH ROPE is definitely a good mystery and will keep your interest until the explosive conclusion.

Wow.  I love finding new authors, and P. L. Doss is quite a find.  Her story is exciting and her characters are well defined.    The story begins with attorney Tom Halloran discovering the body of his best friend, dressed in women's clothes and hanging from a tree.  He believes it is murder, even though the medical examiner is leaning towards an accident of autoerotic asphyxia gone wrong. Hollis Joplin, medical examiner's investigator, begins to believe that Halloran has a point after two more people die, and he decides to investigate on his own.   Saying anymore would give too much away, so all I can say is this is a definite winner for me.

Wow! What a thrilling read! This book is outstanding...a real pager turner. The characters, the plot, the pacing, dialogue -- and let's not forget the surprises -- make for terrific fun. I'd recommend this book for anyone who loves crime fiction and thrillers; this author just nails the genre and keeps one guessing until the last page. I can't wait for the next book from this author; she's created some fascinating and compelling characters who are just getting started. Buy this book today and read it before Hollywood snaps it up...but, be warned: you'll be up all night until you finish the last page!
