The murder of an exotic young woman brings crime too close for comfort.

Murder hits close to home for Death on Demand bookstore owner Annie Darling and her beloved husband, Max. While investigating a new case, Max calls Annie to let her know he may be late getting home. He never shows up. Annie knows something dreadful has happened to him.

During the search for Max, his car is found on a remote road—with a murder weapon in the trunk and a beautiful but very dead young woman nearby. The case becomes a media sensation with Max portrayed as an unfaithful husband willing to kill to get rid of a mistress.

As the evidence against Max continues to mount, chief of police Billy Cameron is called off the case. But Billy risks his career to continue the hunt for a silver car briefly seen following Max’s on the night of the murder, and Annie is forced to go undercover in a desperate attempt to clear her husband’s name. Risking her life, she enters the victim’s unfamiliar world in the hopes of understanding how and why Max is involved. With time running out, Annie has one last chance to capture a wily murderer who just may have committed the perfect crime.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marta | 1/27/2014

    " I worried when I first started reading this book-Annie Darling spent the first few chapters not really participating in the crisis at hand, but eventually she was back to usual sleuthing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 12/25/2013

    " Another enjoyable Carolyn Hart book. I loved getting to visit with my Browards Rock friends. The mystery was good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Daniel | 12/20/2013

    " Amazingly inane at times, good for a listen on a long car drive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 12/20/2013

    " I fell in love with this series - I've always wanted to have a used mystery book store. Annie Darling is a great character. This is a great addition to the series - good suspense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David & Dee | 8/1/2013

    " Good beach book or for summer reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patti | 7/31/2013

    " I thought this was her best one yet. Though the plot and some of the characters' actions are pretty silly, the book was very enjoyable to read. I still think that these are great summer reading mysteries. They are quick to read and always fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sage Streck | 3/2/2013

    " Another great book by Carolyn Hart! I love this series, and always turn to it when I need a break from heavy reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn Baird | 10/5/2012

    " Well I liked it. But I am confused. Why did the killer pick Max to frame? Did I miss something? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 9/21/2012

    " A death on Demand series book of Carolyn Hart. Fast, easy, read that keeps you guessing. I liked her death on demand book better than the Henrie O series, but I will read more when I want a light quick mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicky Beltz | 9/13/2012

    " Cozy murder mysteries set out of a bookstore "Death On Demand." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 12/10/2011

    " Not bad - but not my style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wilhelmina | 11/13/2011

    " This was a light, easy read - nothing exciting, nothing objectionable, just pleasant. This book is part of the Death om Demand series, of which I have read a few. Sort of like eating at McDonald's - not top of the line, but no unpleasant surprises either. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 pjreads ♫ | 7/15/2011

    " Hack writing: every character is an overly exaggerated, hammed-up type and every scene is a parody of melodrama. Murderer is obvious very early. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn | 7/2/2011

    " 3.5 again. Very enjoyable mystery. Have read a number in this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kari | 8/2/2010

    " I liked this entry in the Death on Demand series but I have liked some of the others. This one does not have a lot of bookstore or author action but the mystery is good. This reads more like a suspense book than a cozy mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 7/22/2010

    " Not bad - but not my style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie | 6/30/2010

    " liked the multiple viewpoints.
    good characterizations.
    fast-pace.
    good plot, although at least twice there were "hmm, really?" moments.
    the forward motion of the book stopped a couple of times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Konnie | 7/13/2009

    " This is one of those books you have to read voraciously cover to cover. It was hard to put down until I knew what happened at the end. This is the first Death on Demand novel I read, and it got me hooked on the series. "
