LAUGHED 'TILL HE DIED by Carolyn Hart (William Morrow)

There is so much that I love about Carolyn Hart's books. Her distinctive writing style employs empathetic characters and sensuous descriptions of the South Carolina's Low Country. Her main characters, Annie and Max, are determined to bring justice to a wronged world. And of course, each book tantalizes readers with the mystery water color painting contest.

Laughed 'Til He Died is Carolyn Hart's latest Death on Demand mystery. Booth Wagner, wealthy retiree, likes to get the last laugh. He has no qualms about cruelly taunting his shy step-son, cheating a business associate or threatening his former mistress. Annie and Max are soon drawn into the investigation of several deaths connected to Broward's Rock island youth recreation center. They feel the sheriff is focusing on the wrong suspect and set out to clear her name.

If you're looking for a fast-paced classic mystery Laughed 'Til He Died definitely fills the bill.

This is the next book on the top of my pile of books to read. I love Carolyn Hart - not only is she a wonderful writer, she is a very special person and one who encourages and nurtures other writers. I am one of her biggest fans.
