Title: The murderer's daughters

Author: Randy Susan Meyers

Publisher: St. Martin's Press

Copyright: 2009

ISBN: 978-0-312-57698-1

Series or stand-alone: Stand-alone

Setting: Brooklyn, the Boston area

1st Sentence:

July 1971
I wasn't surprised when Mama asked me to save her life.


The book opens with a murder that changes the life of the two girls featured throughout the book. Merry and Lulu must adjust to life without both parents and this book chronicles how the early life events affected each of them. I thought it was a very satisfying read.

To whom would I recommend this: Mystery readers and patrons who like a more literary style of writing. People who like a great debut novel.

My rating: 4/5
