“If I were teaching a course on how to write a mystery, I would make Carolyn Hart required reading.”
Los Angeles Times

“One of the most popular practitioners of the traditional mystery” (Cleveland Plain Dealer), Carolyn Hart is unstoppable—and her Death on Demand mystery series seems to get better with every book. The proof? Dead by Midnight, once again featuring bookstore owner and sometime sleuth Annie Darling and her adoring p.i. husband Max. Their search for the truth behind a shocking “suicide” that rocks the idyllic (if somewhat homicide-prone) island of Broward’s Rock will make any mystery reader an instant fan—joining an ever-growing multitude that includes bestselling thriller author Robert Crais, who declares, “I’m a sucker for Carolyn Hart’s Annie and Max series.”

An accomplished master of mystery, Carolyn Hart is the author of twenty previous Death on Demand novels. Her books have won multiple Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity Awards. She is also the creator of the Henrie O series, featuring a retired reporter, and the Bailey Ruth series, starring an impetuous, redheaded ghost. One of the founders ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful New Death on Demand Mystery! It is so wonderful to be able to escape to Broward's Rock and the Death on Demand bookstore with Annie and Max and their assortment of friends from famous authors to police detectives to restaurant owners on a new adventure. Dead by Midnight is the twenty-first Death on Demand mystery and it is a wonderful addition to the series. As always the writing is so smooth and enjoyable to read. The plot is full of twists and turns and the identity of the murderer was a surprise to me as always in this series. I've loved this entire series beginning from Max and Annie's courtship to their established marriage. And it is wonderful that their marriage is solid and full of love. They are a great partnership, always very supportive of one another. I really enjoy the Death on Demand bookstore setting and I love that Ms. Hart is always dropping mystery writers names as I have found many a new author this way. And the first murder victim is a new employee of Annie's this time out. The setting of Broward's Rock which is off the South Carolina coast is a wonderful setting. We have another "new" old island family as the central characters in this mystery. The Jamison family is full of victims and suspects. And the bookstore employee murderee had been an employee of the Jamison's law firm until recently. Annie knows her new employee had no reason to commit suicide and quickly determines it was murder and sets out to solve the case. Another murder victim quickly follows. Everyone looks like a suspect at some point and it takes Annie and Max's detective work to prove who the murderer is. Great story! Highly recommend this wonderful new addition to the Death on Demand series by Carolyn Hart. It was just released this week so be sure to get your copy soon!
