Book Description:

What started out as the worst day of Mac Faraday’s life would end up being a new beginning. After a messy divorce hearing, the last person that Mac wanted to see was another lawyer. Yet, this lawyer wore the expression of a child bursting to tell his secret. This confidence would reveal Mac as heir to undreamed of fortunes, and lead him to the birthplace of America’s Queen of Mystery and an investigation that will unfold like one of her famous mystery novels.

Soon after she moves to Deep Creek Lake, Maryland, Katrina Singleton learns that life in an exclusive community is not all good. For some unknown reason, a strange man calling himself “Pay Back” begins stalking her. When Katrina is found strangled all evidence points to her terrorist, who is nowhere to be found.

Three months later, the file on her murder is still open when Mac Faraday, sole heir to his unknown birth mother’s home and fortune, moves into the estate next door. Little does he know as he drives up to Spencer Manor that he is driving into a closed gate community that is hiding more suspicious deaths than his DC workload as a homicide detective. With the help of his late mother’s journal, this retired cop puts all his detective skills to work to pick up where the local investigators have left off to follow the clues to Katrina’s executer.

The book that began it all! I have read and listened to other books and spin-offs in this series so I was excited to get back to where and how it all began. By now I know a few of the secrets and am fond of the main characters. Audio book narrator Mike Alger does a fantastic job of distinguishing voices. It is a joy to listen to him. I tend to sit in the car after I have arrived at my destination just to listen a bit longer.
Homicide detective Mac Faraday is about to have his world knocked off its axis. He just went through a messy divorce and was ready to file for bankruptcy. He knew he was adopted, but was unprepared to discover who his birth mother was. He is about to find out almost more than he can handle.
Oh - and I might mention he inherits a fortune and a community. What a community!

That does not change Mac's natural inclination to solve mysteries, specifically murder. Along with discovering his heritage, he is determined to solve a cold case in which his newly acquired half brother is a targeted suspect.

I had to laugh when everyone is calling Mac Mick, and there are times when he slips up and can't keep his own name straight. Of course Gnarly is also a source of entertainment. I appreciated getting to know more about his background.

An intense crime novel with lighter moments and a nice pace to keep readers on their toes.
Once you discover this series you have to continue and will become attached to the players. This series has something for everyone.
