Product description

From Amazon

Veterinarian Alyn Blum-Jones's late mother was disinherited long before Alyn was born. Cut off from the Blum family, Alyn has never even met her aunt, Jacqueline Blum, so she's surprised to receive a letter from her asking Alyn to visit the family estate. When she discovers that her wealthy aunt is missing, Alyn is determined to help in any way that she can, although when she arrives at the Maryland estate she instantly walks into more trouble than she can handle.

The police believe that Jacqueline Blum was murdered, and their prime suspect is Alyn. Jacqueline, Alyn discovers, has recently changed her will and life insurance policy to name Alyn, her only living relative, as the sole beneficiary. But Alyn has an even bigger problem, and his name is Peter Youngblood. Tall, dark, and dangerous, he's been hired by the insurance company to find out what really happened to Jacqueline Blum. Is Peter a savior or an assassin? Can Alyn trust him when she discovers that he has a secret agenda that might threaten her very life? And when she finds herself falling in love with him, can she find the courage to trust the one man who can destroy her?

Thanks to complex characters and an expertly paced plot, In the Dark reads like a superb "whodunit" circa 1950. When the prime suspects start dropping like flies, readers will have to rethink their theories about what really happened to Jacqueline Blum. --Lois Faye Dyer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Dark and stormy nights abound in McKinney's (A Man to Slay Dragons) latest novel of romance and suspense. From a disinherited branch of the mega-rich Blum family, practical Boston veterinarian Alyn Blum-Jones is shocked to read of the disappearance of her only living relative, her heiress aunt Jacqueline Blum, the day before Alyn is to meet her for the first time. Alyn travels to her aunt's Maryland estate, where she meets Peter Youngblood, the tough ex-cop hired by Masterlife Insurance to investigate the case. From Peter, Alyn learns she is her aunt's chief beneficiary and the insurance company's chief suspect. Peter and Alyn search for Jacqueline in Maryland horse country and New York City, encountering along the way a host of oily stable managers and oilier foreign butlers, nefarious nightclub owners, unprincipled corporate bosses, thick plots, kinky outfits and dead bodies?all of which leaves Alyn plenty of time to reckon with her own past as well as with the bearish, passionate Youngblood. Romance outweighs suspense in this easily solvable mystery, which mixes language from popular movies, cheap fiction and expensive stores to offer a rarely surprising but also rarely dull taste of the dark side of inherited wealth, unexpected love and the insurance business.
