banner large seduction of miriam


A sordid sex tape.

A venture capital firm.

A secret society of women.

A Catholic nun.

Can Delilah figure out who killed Miriam Cross . . . . before she becomes the killer’s next target?

Miriam Cross, author, feminist and philanthropist, disappears from her Philadelphia home.  A year later, a lonely recluse named Emily Cray is brutally murdered in her bed in a small Pennsylvania town.  Miriam and Emily are one and the same.

As Delilah and her staff of female detectives – a militant homemaker, an ex-headmistress and a former stripper – delve into Miriam’s life, they become submerged in an underworld of unfathomable cruelty and greed with implications that go far beyond the gruesome death of one woman or the boundaries of one country.  Eventually Miriam’s fight for justice becomes Delilah’s own …. and Delilah’s obsession with finding the truth may prove just as deadly.

WOW!  This book really surprised me with its twists and turns.  Part of me figured out what Miriam was involved with pretty quickly, but not the whole story.  I also couldn’t figure out how everyone fit in, the author did a good job of hiding the motives of the characters until just the right time.   I thought the characters were pretty well developed for a first book and imagine there are more back stories that could be revealed in future books and perhaps there might even be a love story?  Only time will tell.

We give this book 4 paws and next time you are looking for a good mystery, check this one out!
