Court Me Kill Me by David Bradwell [6/10]

Court Me Kill Me,” the fifth in the series starring fashion photographer Anna Burgin, foregrounds Anna while her journalist friend, Danny Churchill, is mostly out of action. When murders around the globe implicate their ally-maybe-friend, the enigmatic, capable Clare, and Anna’s studio is trashed, she finds herself thrown into a fearful police mess that has her questioning Clare’s involvement. David Bradwell plots tightly, although I found the eventual denouement to have less impact than it should, but his main strengths are his “ordinary folk” heroes and the wonderfully sharp and humorous repartee between them. A most satisfying mystery.
