Product description

Product Description

Drusilla Thorne's husband Colin walks out on their marriage of convenience with style: he disappears right in the middle of their magic act. Before he vanishes, though, he steals a bracelet from her, a bracelet that could tip off the people who’ve been searching for Drusilla and her younger sister Stevie for years. Drusilla won’t allow that to happen.

When she finds Colin in Los Angeles, he’s dead. Before dying, he got the both of them involved in a nasty game of Hollywood blackmail. The investigating detective finds out her identity is as fake as her marriage was and he’s determined to find her guilty of something. Her lawyer might have more allegiance to the shadowy figure footing the bill than to her. And her sister does something Drusilla can only hope they live to regret.

Drusilla had better figure out who killed Colin before everything comes apart and the police figure out who she really is.

Wow… that’s all I can say about the lead character. She does things that I wish I had the nerve to do. This book was filled with twists and turns but had a simple unexpected ending. This book is a good read

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong female lead, humour and mystery (and violence) Aug. 12 2014
By CitCat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read the short Sound of Footsteps first and enjoyed it enough to move onto the first full book in the Drusilla Thorne series, which I enjoyed even more.

The story is not perfect and the characters a little OTT sometimes but I'm reading for escape. If I want total realism I'll leave the fiction shelves alone. The book is fast-paced and not shy on the violence and dark back-stories but it's leavened by the overall humour and the smart talking female lead.

I'd recommend that you start with the Sound of Footsteps and if you like that definitely move onto this book and any others that are available by then

5.0 out of 5 stars Great first work March 30 2013
By Marc J. Fine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Clever, snarky, different, unique...these are some of the words I'd use to describe this book. Kept me guessing the whole time. Still, many unanswered questions (who is Drusilla's father?) which suggests, I hope, more to come. Looking forward to the next in, I trust, a long series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Cast and Intricate Plot Make This a Winner Aug. 15 2014
By D A Bale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Really like this second installment (read the prequel) of the Drusilla Thorne Mysteries. Drusilla gets more well-rounded time here as I anticipated, as does her little sister, Stevie.

Drusilla is part of a Las Vegas magician's act, having married the star of the show for strictly for convenience purposes. When her husband goes missing and ends up murdered, the race to clear Drusilla's name begins. After all, most murders are usually committed by the spouse, aren't they?

Enter Nathaniel, the smooth-talking, perfectly tailored attorney her sister called to arrange for when the heat from the LA PD centered on Drusilla. We also have one hunky detective, an aged, has-been actor who provides shelter and eyes the sisters from afar, and a jacked-up Las Vegas beefcake who keeps showing up at the wrong times. Oh, and I almost forgot the young rival vying for the cameras and the media attention surrounding Drusilla wherever she goes.

Then there's that pesky past that keeps showing it's teeth.

Great cast of characters, intricate plot, and an ending that I didn't quite have all figured out (which is pretty hard to find) lead me to assign a rare five stars!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun start to a series that makes you want more March 25 2013
By Thumb Squad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's great to find more fiction with strong but engaging female protagonists (read: not the cliched "I was hurt so I'm keeping everyone at an arms distance, but see how tough I am in my brusque efficiency and professionalism"). While I did find the book a bit slow for me to get into at first, I found myself pulled along by the interactions of the main character, Dru, with everyone else in the book and, oddly, the LA setting. This wasn't a nail biting, dark suspense novel. Its flip, fun, and a quick read with quirky characters that I want to learn more about. Looking forward to the next book!
5.0 out of 5 stars Fast-moving thriller Feb. 6 2017
By Bookzilla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Fast-moving thriller.

Warning: possible triggers for sexual abuse.

Easy to follow stand-alone with an interesting storyline. No drama, no plug and play, just a well written story.

Believable characters with distinct personalities. Informative, thought-provoking and occasionally humorous dialogue.

I have no especial adoration of someone whose only claim to fame has been reciting someone else’s words on television. Once you’ve watched your father tell some of the leaders of the free world how he is and isn’t willing to work with them, you’re not impressed by someone who got lucky because they’re good-looking.

Ex-Mossad agents can be as gay as anyone else. However, they don’t check out possible prom dates while they’re on the job. They’re sort of like asexual killing machines until it’s time to call it a night. Then they party way harder than almost any other highly trained servicemen, possibly exceeded only by German paratroopers.

I may re-read story and look forward to other works by this author
