Ellison Russell wanted a decorator, not a corpse. Too bad she finds Mrs. White in the study killed with a revolver. Things go from bad to worse when she finds Mr. White in the dining room killed with a candlestick. With so many bodies, is it any wonder Detective Anarchy Jones’ new partner considers Ellison a suspect?
With the country club gossips talking a mile a minute, an unexpected cocktail party, a visit from Aunt Sis, and a romantic decision, Ellison hardly has time to think about murder. Unfortunately, the killer has plenty of time to think about her.
“This series has become so enjoyable precisely because Ellison strives against the norms no matter how many times she is told how to behave. It is her sharp wit and humor that allows her to prevail, and attempting to teach the same to her daughter further cements her place as an admirable and extraordinarily likable heroine. As entertaining as it is for readers to romp through 1970s country club society, far more enthralling are the adventures of such a resilient and stalwart woman.” – Kings River Life Magazine

Julie Mulhern is the USA Today bestselling author of The Country Club Murders. She is a Kansas City native who grew up on a steady diet of Agatha Christie. She spends her spare time whipping up gourmet meals for her family, working out at the gym and finding new ways to keep her house spotlessly clean—and she's got an active imagination. Truth is—she's an expert at calling for take-out, she grumbles about walking the dog and the dust bunnies under the bed have grown into dust lions.
Customer ReviewsSee All
What is there NOT to love about this book?? I was hooked immediately and wanted to read it from cover to cover without pause, but unfortunately I had to take care of "real life issues." I kept sneaking back to read what was happening next in this compelling book about the life of Ellison Russell! Watching the Detectives is the 5th Book in The Country Club Murders and it is brilliantly written. Mulhern has captured the time and essence of the 70's and managed to tackle one of society's darkest secrets then as well as now. Her characters are vivid, the family dynamics are intense, her understanding of time and place are on point, and her riveting descriptions of crime scenes is remarkable! Poor Ellison cannot catch a break. I received a complimentary copy from the publisher and NetGalley. This opinion is strictly my own and without influence.
