Authors Showcase: It’s Murder, My Son by Lauren Carr


The Book: It’s Murder, My Son

The Author: Lauren Carr

The Story: What started out as the worst day of Mac Faraday’s life would end up being a new beginning. After a messy divorce hearing, the last person that Mac wanted to see was another lawyer. Yet, this lawyer wore the expression of a child bursting to tell his secret, which would reveal Mac as heir to undreamed of fortunes, and lead him to the birthplace of America’s Queen of Mystery and an investigation that will unfold like one of her famous mystery novels.

Soon after she moves to her new lakefront home in Spencer, Maryland, multi-millionaire Katrina Singleton learns that life in an exclusive community is not all good. For some unknown reason, a strange man calling himself “Pay Back” begins stalking her. When Katrina is found strangled all evidence points to her terrorist, who is nowhere to be found.

Three months later the file on her murder is still open with only vague speculations from the local police department when Mac Faraday, sole heir to his unknown birth mother’s home and fortune, moves into the estate next door. Little does he know as he drives up to Spencer Manor that he is driving into a closed gate community that is hiding more suspicious deaths than his DC workload as a homicide detective. With the help of his late mother’s journal, this retired cop puts all his detective skills to work to pick up where the local investigators have left off to follow the clues to Katrina’s killer.

It’s Murder, My Son, is my third mystery and the first installment of the Mac Faraday Mysteries.

I have set the Mac Faraday Mysteries on Deep Creek Lake, a resort area in Western Maryland. My family vacation there frequently. A few hours from Washington, Deep Creek Lake is a popular summer residence and vacation spot.

Between the variety of characters coming in from the city, and the small town feel created by the locals that live there year round, this mystery writer couldn’t resist bringing the two together to see what happen when you throw in a murder.

I’m sure you’ll have as much fun reading It’s Murder, My Son as I did writing it.

No disrespect to Mac Faraday, Archie Monday, David O’Callaghan, Travis Turner or any of the multitude of good, bad and ugly characters populating Lauren Carr’s It’s Murder, My Son; but to me the most interesting character in the book is a lovable, mischievous, sneaky German shepherd named Gnarly.- David M.
