Exotica by Patti Larsen
Bodies wash up on the Silver City beach all the time, but this one is different. Detective Geraldine Meyers is hot on the case, with help from medical examiner Dr. Rachel Hunter and anthropologist Dr. Kinsey DanAllart, uncovering the truth behind deaths at a popular new nightclub. Will they deduce a logical explanation for the murders? Or will the three friends uncover a deeper conspiracy hiding the truth about what’s stalking their city’s streets?
Welcome to The Nightshade Cases, a series of twenty-one episodes in twenty-one weeks. Please note: this episodic series is based on the television show model, with screenwriting notations and shorter formats. There will be a complete mystery each week, with cliffhangers only occurring in the full season story line. This is episode two.
Thoughts by Cherri-Anne
Yes, okay. They’d encountered weird.
The three of them had enough “weird” to last Gerri a lifetime. Whoa! This series or stories or episodes, regardless what you want to call them, they are awesome. I have read the first 2 episodes now and they are my first time ever reading stories that are the equivalent to TV episodes of your favorite show and boy am I digging them. I like that each book solves that “case”, while also building on the overall storylines, just like a TV series would. Patti has done a fantastic job keeping the stories interesting, hinting at lots more to come & it keeps you wanting to solve all of those mysteries and find out those secrets those girls have kept deeply hidden within. Speaking of which, I love how they are great friends and even though their jobs, talents and knowledgeable expertise all lay in different areas – Detective Geraldine “Gerri” Meyers, medical examiner Dr. Rachel “Ray” Hunter and anthropologist & college professor Dr. Kinsey DanAllart – they are each able to contribute almost equally to solve the cases together, regardless if anyone else likes it or not! This is a really great overall storyline Patti has going here and I can’t wait to keep reading to see where this is going to and how things will play out. OK OK!! I also want to know if any of my guesses are correct too!
