Midwest Book Review of DEAD ON THE DELTA
by Alma Bond, Author and Reviewer for Midwest Book Review
“In this suspenseful tale of international corruption and hatred, Alexa Williams once again proves a formidable heroine. The ins and outs of the book will keep you up for the night.”
Dead on the Delta is the latest in the exciting series of Alexa Williams mysteries by Sherry Knowlton. Ms. Knowlton is a fine writer, who writes beautiful prose as good as that of much of our finest fiction. Anyone interested in elephants will come away from reading the book knowing a great deal more about them, as well as hippos and lions.
The book is an exciting, suspenseful story which grabs the attention of the reader from the very first page. Alexa Williams, the major sleuth of the series, and. her lover, Reese, are visiting Africa, which Reese loves and has persuaded the reluctant Alexa to accompany him. We will see a lot of Reese, as they tiptoe through a delightful resumption of their romance. Alexa's hometown is Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Knowlton's descriptions of Carlisle are real enough to make anyone acquainted with the town homesick.
In this suspenseful tale of international corruption and hatred, Alexa Williams once again proves a formidable heroine. The ins and outs of the book will keep will keep you up for the night. It is an important book, which I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a good mystery and wishes to learn about the workings of crime in a small town. Unlike with most mysteries, you will also enjoy the beauty of Sherry Knowlton's writing.
