Mira Kolar-Brown's second book, "Lock Up You Daughters", is, if anything, even better than her first, "Hiding the Elephant". HIDING THE ELEPHANT (Simon Grant Mysteries) But that's not to say that you should skip the second and plunge immediately into the first.
That would be a twofold mistake. First, because you'd be passing up a terrific book, and, second, because Mira reveals, in "Daughters", some things that remain unresolved and mysterious in "Elephant".
And, once you've been there, you can't go back.
Folks already familiar with Mira's work are going to be pleased to return to her England of the early nineties where they can, once again, catch up with Simon Grant.
Simon, for those of you who have yet to meet him, is a moral cop who leads a complicated personal life with his wife and the woman he loves.
And they are not the same person.
"Daughters" focuses on the murder of two women, separated by years in time, but whom we ultimately discover to have been victims of the same killer.
And both the identity of that killer, and the motive for the deeds, will surprise you.
At least, they did me.
This book, on Kindle, is an absolute steal. Buy it.
