Old Loves Die Hard

On the day of his divorce retired homicide detective, Mac  Faraday, learned  he had inherited a multi-million dollar estate from his famous birth mother.  He was just settling into his new lifestyle when his ex-wife knocked on the door of the mansion begging him to take her back.   Faraday soon discovered that Old Loves Die Hard when Christine, the ex, and her lover, were both found brutally murdered in Faraday’s private penthouse suite.The main suspect?  Mac Faraday. 
In this second book of the series, continuing from, It’s Murder My Son, Lauren Carr weaves a tight and challenging tale of Washington DC politics, less than scrupulous attorneys, court judges, and an intrigue of justice served that has the reader engaged in guessing games.  Murderers had escaped punishment, only to become victims. Who killed them – and why was Christine involved?  Or was she? Who was Nita, the mysterious Spanish speaking maid?  No one is above suspicion.  It takes everyone, Mac, his secretary Archie, his half-brother David and even Gnarly the kleptomaniac German shepherd to fit together the pieces of this puzzle.  


  1. I'm so glad to be back at your blog! I love getting pithy descriptions of books as you write them--it's like getting to taste many dishes at a finger food party :)

  2. Sounds interesting. Apparently, homicide detectives don't really get to retire. An interesting cast of characters, especially the kleptomaniac German shepherd. Liz

  3. I just found your blog by clicking over from your comment on Morgan Mandel's blog. I really like this one and the mystery village. I will be back. That's a promise and a threat. LOL
