Publisher's Summary

“An exciting mystery with plenty of intriguing and enigmatic characters, It's Murder, My Son is not a read that should be missed for mystery fans.” (Midwest Book Reviews)

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, which 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 her new lakefront home in Spencer, Maryland, multi-millionaire 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 with only vague speculations from the local police department 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 killer.

Awesome Listen!

It's Murder, My Son by Lauren Carr is awesome! I loved the meeting of Mac Faraday with Archie and Gnarly. It was wonderful getting the back story on these favorite characters of mine. I had previously listened to a prior recording of this book, and I must say that Mike Alger has done a fantastic job bringing the characters to life in this book. He gives distinguished voices for the various characters. I loved the imagery in this book too. I can envision so much. There are unexpected twists, some great humor, well developed characters, a complex plot, and a surprise killer. I love it when I do not have the killer figured out. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator. This book is the first of the series and is a standalone listen. I loved it!

A Community Full of Secrets

Mac, an about to be bankrupt, police detective unexpectedly inherits millions from his estranged, detective fiction author, mother. Mac is soon retired and taking up residence on his mothers estate. He learns of the recent death of a neighbour and, as a former homicide detective, can't help but become embroiled in the suspicious circumstances. A wonderfully immersive novel with great characters, lots of plot twists and turns plus expressive narration. Very enjoyable.
