Jean Hughes used to be a singer in a nightclub, but a man shows up one night and convinces her to move to Broward’s Rock, South Carolina. The job he suggests for her is to be the director at Haven - a place for kids to hang out. Attendance rises as Jean takes over, and the kids of Haven love her.

Booth Wagner is the person who laughs at other people’s misfortunes. As you can imagine, that trait has made him more than a few enemies. He is a hateful man who does not like it when other people can get a laugh at his expense.

Booth brought in Jean Hughes to the director of Haven because he knew it would upset more than one person on the board. When Jean refuses to bend to his will, Booth plays dirty. He tries to turn the board against her and threatens to kick her out of her home. A man with enemies should never turn his back and that is exactly what Booth does. Booth is shot at a Haven talent show when the lights go out. The hunt begins for a killer and the Darlings find themselves involved in the investigation. The death of a teenage boy was overlooked as an accident, but was it? Or is there a tie to Booth Wagner’s murder?

The Darlings are back for another go around in this twentieth installment of the Death on Demand series. While this series is familiar to a lot of readers, this one is just as fresh and new as the first. With familiar characters to draw her readers in, Ms. Hart keeps them hanging by their fingernails with this latest addition. I enjoy visiting with my friends who reside within the pages of these books, but when there is a mystery to be solved, I know I am in for a long night of reading. I encourage you to pull up a chair at Death on Demand, settle in for a conversation, and see what else will happen to the characters of Broward’s Rock.
