Mystery, Intrigue, Action! Characters you will love and characters you will love to see meet their fate. Strongly developed players who grow as the saga unfolds, one book to the next. Henson leads the charge against strange enemies as she becomes the powerful woman she is destined to be.
This series features a female protagonist as a detective assigned to a case of a murdered woman. The woman is married to a dangerous, retired mobster. The investigation leads the detective to Miami and Chicago to interview leads involving criminals and contract killers, all likely to be involved, as the mobster has many high-profile enemies. The identity of the killer is quite a surprise, but the story is peppered with clues, so there’s no ‘that’s a dumb ending’ and the feeling that you’ve just read a baseless novel.
As the series progresses into the later books, Detective Adelaide Henson is tested, but determined, and solves case after case. Each new book presents a mystery that is harder to solve than the last, leading the reader to challenging and puzzling cases.
One story leads into the next, always a mystery to solve. First, the death of a wealthy, mysterious woman. Then, other slain innocents. All at the hands of the insane. Along the way? contract killers, the mob, strange and powerful enemies, and…lovers
Henson’s as smart and tough as she is loving and sensual. The characters you’ll see in these novels, you will also find in later books. You’ll fall in love with Helen, the thin, pencil-faced contract killer. Daphne, too. And let’s not forget about Ulrich. He’s from Russia, and you’ll really enjoy what happens with him!
The series reads like a saga and the reader is exposed to the thoughts and feelings of Adelaide Henson. She can be bitchy and tough, smart and cunning, sad and depressed. Just like any person. The characters she interacts with in the series are richly developed and multi-faceted. They can be bad people doing good things, or good people being bad (you’ll want them to meet their fate).
If you like strong one of kind female characters determined to find the most heinous psychotic killers, even if it means entering into the dark world of hitmen, mobsters and outright ugly people, then follow this psychological mystery series and super cop Henson on her thrilling adventures.
