Murder Gone Missing by Lisa Sideris - #review


Newly minted lawyer Corrie Locke has taken a vow of abstinence. From PI work, that is. Until her best friend Michael finds his bully of a boss stabbed in the back after confronting him earlier that day. Michael panics, accidentally tampering with the crime scene…which could lead the cops to Michael instead of the real culprit. He turns to Corrie to track down the killer. She doesn’t need much coaxing. Her late great PI dad taught her the ropes…and left her his cache of illegal weaponry.

They return to the scene of the crime, but the body’s missing. Racing against time, Corrie dredges a prestigious Los Angeles college in pursuit of clues. All she finds are false leads. Armed with attitude and romantic feelings toward Michael, Corrie dives into a school of suspects to find the slippery fugitive. Will she clear Michael’s name before he’s arrested for murder?

MY REVIEW

What do new lawyers, missing bodies and a pig pen in a pet sanctuary have in common?  Corrie's latest PI case in "Murder Gone Missing" by Lisa Sideris - that's what!

I think investigation must be like catnip for cozy heroines.  Corrie even became a lawyer to make a change, but can't resist being drawn back into the whodunit fold.  Of course, her friend Michael's unwitting visit to the crime scene, possible motive for killing the victim (his boss) and leaving evidence that points to him being the culprit could have something to do with Corrie's decision.

And finally, someone whose life is more crazy than mine! *LOL*

The craziness in "Missing" reminds me somewhat of the style of frenetic energy in Frank Capra's "Arsenic and Old Lace", which I also adored.  The exposition, action and dialog are witty - I do so love authors who like to play with their words!

I don't want to go into too much detail about the story, because that would deny you the fun of discovering 'whodunit' for yourself in this absolutely delightful book and series!
