AN ILLUSTRATED DEATH by Judi Culbertson
When bookseller Delhi Laine gets the opportunity to appraise the late artist Nate Erikson’s library, she jumps at the chance, despite the mysterious circumstances surrounding the illustrator’s death. But as she spends more time with the eccentric Erikson clan at the family compound in the Hamptons, Delhi can’t help but wonder what really happened to the lost patriarch. When death visits the family once more and another Erikson is found murdered, dark family secrets come to light.
Delhi Laine becomes involved in a murder investigation while appraising a book collection. Throw in family drama, strange happenings, another murder, and you've got the makings of a great mystery. Delhi's wit and a parade of characters make this an adventurous, enjoyable read. I give it 4.5 stars.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
