"A SAVVY SOCIAL SATIRE"

+5



Mysteries are all the more intriguing when mixed with power, seasoned with adultery, deception, the wealthy, and served from an exciting location. Jane Stanton Hitchcock has that formula down pat as we saw in Social Crimes and Trick of the Eye. She again followed this pattern with her latest, Mortal Friends.

The scene is Washington, D.C. and there’s a serial killer dubbed the Beltway Baser on the loose. He seems to have a bent for female victims and left his latest in Georgetown, enclave of the rich and political. One of the many who devours news re the murders is Reven Lynch, owner of an upscale antique shop. Reven (so named because it’s ‘never’ spelled backward and her parents never expected to have a child) is very attractive, and knows who to hang out with. Her good friend, Violet, is wed to a wealthy banker.

While one might think never the twain would never meet Reven does meet George Gunner, a detective assigned to investigate the murders. He believes that the killings are tied to a very important person (VIPs aren’t on his speed dial), so he enlists the help of Reven to help him navigate the corridors of push and plunder.

Ooops, the suspect that George comes up with is not at all who Reven would have thought, and she finds herself in a very sticky situation (that’s an understatement).

Jennifer Van Dyke gives excellent voice to narrator Reven, especially when making acerbic comments about some Washington insiders and their women.

Enjoy!
