Product Description

Product Description

Barton Edmunds had escaped the death penalty. He was serving his thirty second year of three consecutive life sentences for murders he said he didn’t commit. According to his story, the farm was silent when he'd arrived for work that day. Feeling strongly that something was wrong, he says he forced his way into the Davenport house. Next thing anyone knew, Edmunds stood in a neighbor’s doorway with a baby in his arms, begging her to call the police.

Thirty three years later, Jeremy Davenport, the baby who survived the massacre seeks the truth. What happened to his family that night? Armed with a picture of his sister, Kelly, whose body was never recovered, he searches. Is she still alive?

Jeremy hires private detective, Lindsay Carter, to piece together clues and link them to the truth. As she gets closer, the old farm house is burned to the ground and more bodies are discovered. Lindsay Carter believes that in order to find out who killed Jeremy Davenport’s family, she must first solve the earlier crimes. Had Edmunds been framed by a ruthless killer who had been on the loose for decades?

3.0 out of 5 stars Better ending 11 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the second in the 'series' of Lindsay Carter novels. It was just as indepth as the first with lots of characters. You really have to pay attention to the names/job titles so that you can keep up with the story. At least this novel ended better than 'Granny Heist' - which ended so abruptly that if it had been a paper book I would be convinced a page or two was missing

5.0 out of 5 stars Come on Dawn, time for a new book!!!! 7 May 2012
By Joy Dee - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the story line and cudos to the author for being so good at holding the audience! At the snap of your fingers she turns the tale a twist and adds a new character. At the same snap of the fingers, she has you hungry for the next page to see if where you think she is going is indeed where you find her. The characters are strong, well established and defined so as not to need further explanation further in. This allows her to keep the story line fluid and continual, page after page. Thank heavens there is no repetition used to fill the pages. This book will catch your interst from page one and keep you snagged through the last page. It ends acceptionally well and yet you wish it wasn't over. So... the remedy would be either a sequel or another mystery ASAP. While there were indeed a few grammatic errors, I would guess they are more synonyms plugged in with the use of spell check as the story is being either proofed or written. It in no way distracts from the interst in the book. As far as the police being stupid.... hey, I know a few "Fife's", and there are those cops who think they are above the law but in this book, the Police are paid well to be "dumb". As for the Cop who thinks things are amiss, he is brushed off and ignored, easily so. Just read the book.... you won't regret it!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Dead By Dawn. 13 May 2012
By R. Putnam - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not a bad story. I neither liked it as well as the 5 star reviewers, nor disliked it. I found no errors that were distracting. I liked the way it solved old and new mysteries, and I liked the ending. I also liked that I didn't know who did it until the very end, I can usually guess. This would have been 4 stars if the format wasn't so "chunky". Long blocks of words slow down how fast I can read, and this could have been an easier read. The story was still quite good, and if you like mysteries, you will enjoy this. RE: the reviewer that doesn't believe the police could/would be that stupid...seriously?? Besides, I never saw the police as simply incompetent. They were delibrately being political, and a lot changed as the author explored the currant police investigations. I was very satisfied with how that aspect played out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting idea, needs editing and spell- and grammar-checker 18 May 2012
By Kindler51 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When you have a perhaps-innocent man in prison, murderers and their victims (and their families), two kidnapped or killed children, one baby left in his crib, all of the people in three generations of two different families, another murder with buried bodies, our heroine and her husband, a number of different police officers and investigators, and a judge, things get confusing! I was having trouble keeping up with all of the relationships and their time-lines over decades--there are just too many characters, plots and sub-plots in only about 220 pages. Add in a healthy dose of grammar/spelling errors, and, while this has an interesting, if convoluted, story, it definitely also needs a good (professional) editor.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read 3 Mar 2014

A mystery that will stay on my Kindle to be read again. Lots of twists and turns in this winding tale. A surprise at the end, but also a happy ending. A definite read for all mystery lovers.
