This fine mystery starts out when Mercedes finds one of her clients dead in his bath tub. She calls her friend and lawyer Walker Boone just in case she is in need of legal council. This would have all been just fine if the handsome Walker Boone didn't have a connection to the dead guy.
Of course Reagan Summerside and Aunt Kiki jump in to try to save the day. I love these two characters. Reagan has a way of getting herself into so much trouble and then finding the most hilarious ways to get out of it. She and her pleather purse get out of some sticky situations that tend to leave me breathless and followed by a case of the giggles. Aunt Kiki is usually around for the action. Everyone should have an Aunt Kiki in their life. She is just adorable and so much FUN!
Walker soon finds himself in trouble with the law as their main suspect. Reagan is on the case though and finds there are a whole lot of people that might have wanted this fellow dead. He wasn't the most loved man in town and there are a few people that are happy to hear he's gone.
Things get pretty wild near the end of the story and Duffy Brown leaves us with on major cliff hanger. I suggest picking up a copy of Demise in Denim when you purchase Dead Man Walker. It will save you some time wondering what is going to happen next! I however read Dead Man Walker a few months ago before Demise in Denim was out.
I really enjoyed Dead Man Walker just as I have all the books in this series. I love the quirky characters that have so much charisma and southern charm.
If you love a great mystery with plenty of humor, suspense, and likable characters then you should check out the Consignment Shop Mysteries. I think you will enjoy them. I know I have. Each book works just fine as a stand alone if you have not had a chance to read the previous books in the series.
I was given the opportunity to read Dead Man Walker so that I may share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you on this great book.
