What would you do if your best friend, a Hollywood Superstar, came to visit you in your town and was murdered? You probably don't know the answer to this question, but this is exactly what happened to Reilly Swanson. She was desperate to save her town from extinction. With nowhere else to turn, she wrote a letter to an old friend BEATRIZ, who had since become a star of Music Television and film. BEATRIZ arrived. Later she was found dead in her room at the Inn, murdered. Her estranged husband, Alexio Allesandro - a polo player from Paris, trailed her. His body is found the next day, hanging naked from the rafters of a barn with an alleged suicide note. The paparazzi reported the deaths as a tragic murder/suicide. Reilly doesn't believe it! Together with the town Sheriff, Joe and Doctor, Reilly searches to uncover the truth about the deaths. This book takes the reader from Sussex to Paris (through the tunnels across the Seine) to Manhattan and finally back to the lethal rural town of Sussex. Haunting, provacative and utterly unforgettable, Seven Murders In Sussex is both a unique, tantalizing mystery and a cautionary tale. With exquisite timing and masterly skill, Richard Smiraldi takes us on a journey into darkness and the struggles that war within each of us.

I love murder mysteries and they are my favorite to read. I hadn't checked out Mr. Richard Smiraldi, but I am very eager to read books from new authors. Reilly was desperate to save her town from extinction and was willing to do anything to save her hometown. She decides to write a letter to one of her old friends, BEATRIZ, who is a Hollywood superstar. BEATRIZ is suddenly murdered and everything breaks lose. Her husband Alexio is also found dead and the case is labeled as a murder/suicide. Reilly doesn't believe it and tries to get to the bottom of the case. I loved this story and the mystery. I would read another from this author!
Very detailed murder mystery keeps you at the edge of your seat the whole time. Looking forward to part two!
