Synopsis: A detached and wary observer of others, Lily reluctantly finds herself investigating the murder of one of her employers, Deedra Dean, in her latest engaging outing. It's Lily's misfortune to discover Deedra's violated body in her car on a deserted road, the apparent victim of a tryst gone sour. For Lily, who already knows more than she wants about the promiscuous young woman's habits, the details don't add up. The nature of the crime forces Lily to deal with her own scars, legacies of the brutal abduction in Memphis that sent her scrambling for the tranquil environs of Shakespeare.
Review: One of the regular characters has bit the dust in this book. While I didn't like the character of Deedra, I also didn't want to see her die, especially in the matter in which she died. It was probably the most grusome way to go, at least by some standards. Charlaine Harris doesn't normally tend to go for blood and gore, but this time she does, so young readers beware.
Once again Lily must help solve the crime, this time of Deedra's murder. They obviously have an incompetent police force if she's the one who is always solving these crimes. Yet if she didn't, there wouldn't be any story, will there?
With this book I had no clue who the bad guy was until it was revealed. I kept thinking it was someone else.
