Overview

One of the most endearing and personable amateur sleuths" (Midwest Book Review), herbalist and ex-lawyer China Bayles is back. In Death Come Quickly, a friend' s murder may be the key to solving a fifteen-year-old cold case When China' s and Ruby' s friend Karen Prior is mugged in a mall parking lot and dies a few days later, China begins to suspect that her friend' s death was not a random assault. Karen was a filmmaker supervising a student documentary about the fifteen-year-old murder of a woman named Christine Morris and the acquittal of the man accused of the crime. Is it possible that the same person who killed Christine Morris targeted Karen? Delving into the cold case, China learns the motive for the first murder may be related to a valuable collection of Mexican art. Enlisting the help of her San Antonio lawyer friend Justine Wyzinski-- aka the Whiz-- China is determined to track down the murderer. But is she painting herself into a corner from which there' s no escape?

The fatal mugging of Karen Prior in a west Texas mall kicks off Albert’s perky 22nd mystery featuring herbalist and former lawyer China Bayles (after 2013’s Widow’s Tears). Before she died, Karen, a teacher friend of China’s, was supervising a student documentary on the murder of local art lover Christine Morris some 15 years earlier. The man charged with Morris’s murder and later acquitted was an apparent suicide. How the deaths fit together and their relationship to the Mexican art market is murky indeed. The book’s first half meanders along, nice for readers interested in the minutiae of China’s life, a tad boring for everyone else. But the pace picks up when China gets serious about the investigation. China gets help from her best friend and business partner, Ruby Wilcox, whose thinking is strictly intuitive, and her investigator husband, Mike McQuaid, who, like law enforcement husbands everywhere, tries to keep her from getting involved. Albert skillfully weaves legal and herbal information into the plot. (Apr.)
