    Fireballs in the night, and multiple victims of what appears to be a mob hit? In a sleepy Ozark town like Blue Creek? Rural deputy Richard Carter has seen his share of mayhem, but nothing like this. As he, his cynical partner Ron Guidry, and new deputy Cicely “Kit” Kittredge dig into what at first appears to be insurance fraud, they uncover something “unholy” near a small creek called Devil’s Run. While they search for a motive, sadistic murder burns its way through Hawthorn County, eliminating their suspects. Devil’s Run is a stand-alone Mystery/Suspense novel (#12) in the Richard Carter series.

    About "The Daughter" Blue Creek’s “golden girl” is gone. Two days ago, Shara McGregor, the girl whose face adorns the junior college billboard on the highway, headed west to Springfield. A bright future lay ahead. After she completed her undergraduate degree, her mentor, former State Senator Willis Sparkes would pull the right strings to get her into a good law school. Despite her humble origins, the small-town girl seemed destined to be among the “movers and shakers.” However, Shara never made it to Springfield. Yesterday, two counties away, three drunken teenagers found her car hidden in the woods near an abandoned cemetery in the Irish Wilderness area. Having lost the keys to their own car, they “borrowed” it to go home for another key. When a deputy stopped them, he found blood in the car—lots of blood. Since the girl came from Blue Creek, Hawthorn County has jurisdiction. Deputy Richard Carter begins what he assumes will be a short investigation. After all, this wasn’t criminal genius at work—or was it? The more he learns about the girl, the more Richard becomes emotionally involved. She seems one of his own, one of the "good people." The obsessive-compulsive ex-Marine pours his soul into the investigation, spurred by an irrational fear that something similar could happen to his own seven-year-old daughter Mirabelle someday. Except for Shara’s blood in the car, there is no physical evidence: no murder weapon, no crime scene, no body, and no one with a motive. There are no suspects and no motive. Everyone liked the girl, and she had no history of high-risk behavior. What happened to her shouldn’t have. She wasn’t that kind of girl. Don’t imagine that everyone in a small town knows everything about everyone else. There are secrets. And there is evil to match anything in the wider world. If Shara had a secret that cost her life, what was it? Maybe it was someone else's secret. The Daughter is a stand-alone story, but I hope that by now, you have read at least Bonne Femme (Book 1). Of course, as with all series, it's best to read the stories in order. All the Richard Carter stories are about obsessions. In The Daughter, Richard Carter becomes obsessed with a missing girl that we see only through his sometimes too-vivid imagination. The mystery of what happened to Shara McGregor is a puzzle, of course. But not a crossword to work out, or a jigsaw puzzle to piece together. Instead, it is a hand puzzle, the sort that suddenly seems to come together of its own accord. At first, you are unsure. Then, you are certain. Then, you are wrong. And then-- Please enjoy. --AR Simmons
