New River Blues by Elizabeth Gunn is the second book in the “Sarah Burke” mystery series. Publisher: Severn House Publishers, May 2009
Tucson Police detective Sarah Burke is called in to investigate a horrific double murder in a high-dollar neighborhood. The tragic destiny of a rich and troubled family unfolds against the backdrop of the imploding construction industry and the politics of downtown reconstruction.
Meanwhile, Sarah’s household bulges at the seams, as her niece, her mother and her boyfriend – vivid personalities all – search for accommodation in her small spaces and crowded schedule, and her sister, as usual, does nothing to make things easier.
This was a very enjoyable mystery.
