When Kirsty Morgan dropped five thousand dollars on Private Investigator Paul West's desk, with the promise of five thousand more if he found her father, he had no idea he was on the cusp of being thrust into a cauldron of lies, deceit and manipulation, orchestrated by the most unlikely of characters... a charismatic televangelist. He gave new meaning to Machiavellian as he orchestrated and manipulated the lives of those who trusted him. It took an acerbic newspaper columnist to trigger the climatic ending which engulfed widows who were coerced into signing away their estates through codicils, all in the name of God. Murder Can Kill is a page turner. It will keep the reader guessing to the very end.

I started Murder Can Kill a couple of days ago and am thoroughly enjoying it. The minister sounds like quite the devil and had grabbed the relationships with mischievous tactics and taken complete control. I can't wait to find out what levels he is willing to go in order to keep his secret! Loving the book.

I started, Murder Can Kill a couple of days ago and am thoroughly enjoying it.

I can't wait to find out what levels he is willing to go to keep his secret. Loving the book
I finished Murder Can Kill a couple of weeks ago. I must admit that it got me hooked, with constant action and something to look forward to. I loved how you smoothly finished it off with problem after problem slowly and partially being resolved. Not everything ended out perfectly and I think that is great. Happily ever after is not always the greatest. Look forward to reading some of your other work.

I was delighted to learn that the lead detective Paul West will be returning in future books in The Paul West Mystery Series. He is too good of a character to just be in one story. I can hardly wait.
