Today is all about the letter D in the Crime Fiction Alphabet and the idea behind this meme is to write something related to crime fiction that’s based on the letter of the week. This can be an author, the name of a book or something to do with writing crime fiction. The post should be up by the end of each week. See the rules for the Alphabet in Crime Fiction here. This Meme is run by Kerrie at Mysteries in Paradise.
She’s Canadian and is currently transplanted to Mexico. If you writing has anything to do with crime, crime scenes and such, her blog is a must read.

The Sholes Key is the first in the Evans & Blackwell series. What is unique about this book is that there are a series of murders and the perpetrator leaves codes in a gristly fashion. Now, here’s where I reveal my lack of brilliance. The codes went over my head, but that didn’t take away from my enjoying the story. The writer has been good enough to post the codes on her site for those who read the book on Kindle.
The book is intriguing, the characters complex and the crimes hair-raising. I won’t reveal any more details as I still have a review to write. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
