D. D. Warren was pretty sure she’d seen it all. Then a man walks into police headquarters, attempting desperately to convince the squad that he’s dead. Explaining to him that he’s very much alive, they finally send him on his way . . . and then hours later, he turns up actually dead. And it’s on D. D. Warren to figure out how and why the dead man died . . . twice.
I don’t usually read short stories, but when the opportunity arose to read this little gem from one of my favorite authors, Lisa Gardner, I could not pass it up.
I really enjoyed this Agatha Christie style mystery! Adam LaToile walks into a police station claiming he is dead. Hmmm…he is walking, talking, and breathing so clearly he is not dead! Can you imagine the shock when the police learn, just two hours after that visit to the police station that Adam now really is dead? He was found at home, in his own bed – now we have a good old-fashion whodunit.
The list of suspects is long. Was it Paulette the maid, Ernesto the gardener, Charlie the driver, Dennis the personal chef, Manuel the manservant, Martha LaToile his wife, or Dr. Anil the doctor?? I decided to put my detective hat on and went to work with D.D. Warren to solve this crime.
At just under 100 pages I got a really fun, quick mystery, that kept me guessing until the end. That’s right, I know you are surprised, but I did not manage to solve this mystery nearly as well as D.D. Warren!
