When you keep secrets, you don’t make friends… or do you? In Jane Stanton Hitchcock’s fifth page turner, Mortal Friends, we venture into the social scene and political scandals of Washington D.C. Murder is on the plate, a serial killer is on the loose and police detective Gunner, touting more than a few secrets of his own, is looking to catch him before the bodies pile up.
Reven Lynch is in the” it” crowd but is no longer married to it. She’s a crime-loving gal who owns an antique shop, also working as a decorator on the side. Her best friend since boarding school, Violet Bolton, is an expert of all there is to know about serial killers. When the killer on the loose strikes on their running route, they have a lot to reconsider and a lot to contemplate in their own lives.
New face on the scene Cynthia Rinehart throws a few wrenches into the experience and love lives. Reven is dipping her toes into the dating scene, but is he the killer as Gunner suspects, or just a lothario?
As all this comes undone marriages fall apart, friendships are weathered, enemies surface, and scandals are reveled. Reven will discover that the life she has known is for naught.
In the true style of Jane Stanton Hitchcock, this one will keep you on the edge of your seat and riveted until the very last page.
