Three Devils Dancing by Keith Donnelly is the third book in the “Donald Youngblood” mystery series. Publisher: John F. Blair, December 2010
After the Malone case nearly got him killed, ex-Wall Street whiz kid and private investigator Donald Youngblood wants just to settle down with his new ready-made family and watch the world go by.
A young woman with a mysterious tattoo turns up dead at a local lake, and the girl’s father persuades Don to look into her killing. Soon afterward, a three-year-old girl gets kidnapped. The girl’s mother, wanting to avoid police involvement, convinces Don to look for her daughter, leaving him with much more than he bargained for.
Who took the little girl, and why?
Is the tattoo on the dead girl a significant clue or just skin art?
Playing a deadly game of cat and mouse with an insane serial killer while trying to fulfill a promise to a ruthless drug dealer, Donald Youngblood, with help from partner Billy Two-Feathers and new ally Oscar Morales, pursues his most cunning adversary yet.
What a great story. When a young girl is found dead and similar cases are connected, Don knows this is the work of a serial killer. Don has his hands full with two other cases that need his attention, but the murder of this young teenager and finding her killer is his main priority. From the moment I started reading, I could not put this book down. With a well-written story and more defined characters, this fast-action read kept me turning the pages. I love this series because I always finish with a smile. This was an enjoyable read that will leave you wanting more.
