Goodreads:  Can Delilah Percy Powers figure out who killed Miriam Cross before she becomes the killer's next target? 

Miriam Cross, author, feminist and philanthropist, disappears from her Philadelphia home. A year later, a lonely recluse named Emily Cray is brutally murdered in her bed in a small Pennsylvania town. Miriam and Emily are one and the same. As Delilah and her staff of female detectives - a militant homemaker, an ex-headmistress and a former stripper - delve into Miriam’s life, they become submerged in an underworld of unfathomable cruelty and greed with implications that go far beyond the gruesome death of one woman or the boundaries of one country. Eventually Miriam’s fight for justice becomes Delilah’s own...until Delilah’s obsession with finding the truth may prove just as deadly.

Kritters Thoughts:  Delilah is a fantastic character that wants to get to the truth and expose the bad people for who and what they are.  A former client approaches her to help with a recent murder that the police are not investigating at all.  From the beginning Delilah and her team must do some very handiwork to get answers.

I loved the intricate puzzle that had to be figured out in order to find the killer and the reasoning, but it was hard to keep together.  There were good guys and bad guys and guys who maybe played for both teams, it was a true mystery.  The author did a fine job of slowly giving puzzle pieces to the reader, but I was still unsure of the killer(s) until the bitter end.  Even at the end more things were unraveled and even more people were involved in the crime.

With so many twists and turns, there were a few moments where I wasn't sure who was on what side and if I should be rooting for them or wishing them harm!  At times confusing, but definitely worth the ride!

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
