people have a difficult time telling her NO. In this Halloween adventure, involving the sudden death of a young TV reporter who is about to move on to a better opportunity, Sean McKinley has a tougher time than usual reigning Sara in. They both want justice to be served, even after retiring from the official police force.
I like the collection of characters Carolyn Arnold has brought together for the McKinley's not-for-profit P.I. firm. The admirable rivalry between youngin tech genius Adam and seasoned former police sargeant Jimmy shows how it is possible to respect each other while still trying to outshine the "competition." It seems everyone is always trying to impress Sara, who adds as much to the team efforts as any one of the guys.
A backdrop to the murder investigation is the McKinley's desire to promote a Haunted House for charity. This is how they first meet the victim, reporter Chloe Parsons and her cameraman, Jackson. It also allows us to be charmed by young Mia and gives the P.I's plausible excuses to walk into the different tv stations and ask questions. They are skating a thin line this time because the official investigation is not yet closed. Can they solve the murder before they tick off the wrong person?
So far this is my favorite of the Murder series by Carolyn Arnold.
