 "Being favored by the rich and powerful often has its own drawbacks. Shades of Murder is another Mac Faraday mystery from Lauren Carr as she follows Mac as he finds himself once again the benefactor of yet another inheritance. A riveting mystery with plenty of twists and turns, Shades of Murder is very much recommended reading, not to be missed." - review by William Buhle, Midwest Book Reviews

"Shades of Murder is a fascinating, intricately woven mystery that has a number of engaging characters looking into two cases that would seem to have nothing in common. ...This is a most entertaining entry in this series, made all the more so by the wonderful inclusion of Gnarly and Irving, Mac's dog and Gates's black and white cat, who meet during the course of the story." - review by Mysterious Reviews

My Review
When it comes to mystery books I have to say that those written by Lauren Carr have become my favorites. I was super excited to get the chance to revisit this series and start at the beginning where I could really get to know the characters. I absolutely loved following Mac Faraday on his newest case that came about from the long-lost Ilysa Ramsay masterpiece finding its way into his hands. Additionally, I have to say that Mike Alger did a wonderful job with the narration.
