My review;

"Kill and Run" by Lauren Carr is the first book in her series called  A Thorny Rose Mystery series. In this book about Lieutenant Murphy Thornton's USN first murder we learn how he tries to solve the murder of five women who are found together. No one can figure out why someone wanted these women, all different ages, with no apparent ties dead. But, it becomes clear that somehow they have to have a connection of some kind. Lieutenant Thornton figures that if he can figure out how they are connected he will find the one who committed this horrible crime. The story is a twisty one full of surprise even bringing in some family connections. He has to work very fast to solve this murder or he might, along with his new bride, find themselves in real danger. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for the purpose of a review and all opinions are my own.
