Murder Doubles Back by Evelyn David is the third book in the “Sullivan Investigations” mystery series. May 2013
For 10 years private detective Mac Sullivan has been haunted by the case of Amanda Norman, a teenage girl who disappeared into thin air during a class trip. But someone is determined to stir the embers of that cold case. Each year Mac receives a postcard that asks a simple question: Where is Amanda Norman? This year, Mac decides he will answer the question once and for all. Join Mac Sullivan, Rachel Brenner, JJ, Edgar, and of course, Whiskey, the adorable and adored Irish wolfhound, as they try to uncover the mystery of a long missing girl. As Mac and his team investigate, a dark trail of murder and deception follows. If Amanda Norman is still alive, will Mac’s efforts inadvertently lead to her death? If Amanda Norman is dead, who keeps sending the postcards and why? Murder Doubles Back is the exciting third book in the Sullivan Investigations Series.
I love this series and I especially love the latest book where the appearance of an annual postcard of a missing teen from years ago arrives at Mac’s office which sets up an adventure that spiraled out of control with some surprising discoveries that made the chase even sweeter. Who knew that the action of one, will take this 10-year odyssey to a climatic ending that makes the team of Evelyn David one of the best prolific writers that I know.
This page-turning, action-filled drama had my attention from the beginning and when that aha moment came, I was like “wow”, I never saw that one coming. This is a nicely woven mystery with some good fun humor, with witty banter; and the dysfunctional familial relationship that exists between Mac, Rachel, JJ and Edgar that is both engaging and endearing. A great read and I look forward to more adventures with Mac and his friends in this terrific series.
