My Musing ~ A Dead Red Miracle by RP Dahlke

A Dead Red MiracleA Dead Red Miracle by RP Dahlke is the fifth book in the “Dead Red” mystery series. Publisher: Dead Bear Publishing, July 2015

Thinking to jump start their careers as private investigators in Wishbone, Arizona, cousins Lalla and Pearlie Bains buy into it with a local P.I.

But their nifty plan starts circling the drain when his unscrupulous business practices end in his untimely death and they discover that he’s been siphoning clients from their partnership.

With only a week before the state puts pulls the business license Lalla and Pearlie will have to corral a wall-climbing Apache ninja, pacify their former boss’s greedy ex-wives and nail a killer. Sure Lalla and Pearlie are in a really tight spot, but all they need is a miracle or two.

When we last visited Lalla, she gotten married and was now living in Arizona. Three years later, her and Pearlie’s dreams of owning their own private investigation business is in jeopardy when their partner is murdered and the only way to save their dream is to find his killer, not realizing more death will follow and what a great job the author did in the telling of this fast-paced and action-filled drama. I like how this was presented with an eclectic cast of characters and a mystery that kept me intrigued, especially when all the pieces came together as the author peppered the scenes with red herrings and some twists and turns to keep me glued to the pages as the puzzling case comes to an end. This was a great read and I enjoyed my time spent with Lalla, Pearlie, Caleb and their friends.

  3. The cover reminds me of a trip to Arizona and New Mexico, visiting several Indian reservations with my daughter as she explored several nursing opportunities. I’d like to read this book!

    I like this series. I’d ether catch up, I didn’t know that Lalla had gotten married! By the way Dru, there is a place in the first sentence in the last paragraph that says “puts pulls” and I think that ‘puts’ needs to be pulled. Pun intended, lol.

    “I need to catch up.” Guess I need to proofread my own emails better!
