Summary

Are you sure you could tell the difference between murder and suicide?  

Having had more than enough of the big city, Detective Charlie McClung moves to a small town, looking for a simpler life.

Turns out his first case is the most complicated of his career.

A young woman is found shot and while everyone is telling him suicide, his gut, and the dead woman’s beautiful neighbor, are telling him something quite different.

How far can he dig before he uncovers secrets never meant to be unearthed? Throw in a shady police chief and an unexpected love interest and McClung quickly finds himself with more trouble than he ever imagined.

Critic reviews

"Brilliant Disguise is a first-rate mystery that harkens you back to the days of Agatha Christie. You’ll feel a sense of nostalgia as you immerse yourself in the story, investigating alongside Det. McClung and eagerly awaiting clues at every turn. It’s an edge-of-your-seat whodunit!” (Monique Michelle Mason, author of Moving at the Speed of Single)

Read it straight through

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the story line. Each chapter made me want to read the next straight away. I'm looking forward to the next book of the series. Well done to the author! The level of detail made you picture everything as if you were in the room. The narrator did a great job!

Keeps you thinking

I have to say I really enjoyed this book and audible definitely help enhanced the experience. The VO Bruce Peters did a wonderful job narrating. It never sounded like he was reading a script. His voices for the different characters were entertaining. I would definitely would recommend this to anyone.

Fantastic character driven mystery

Marian Selby's life is turned upside down after a disturbance in her neighborhood. Neighbors and police have gathered and she discovers the horrible news that her friend and neighbor Dianne is dead. The police rule it a suicide and close the case, but Marian knows it is not a suicide. It is a good thing Detective Charlie McClung is on the case because it seems like he is the only one who will dig a bit deeper into the mystery. Marian and Charlie work on the case together secretly, but danger is right around the corner. I loved this book. It is a character driven story, and the mystery is the backdrop for romance. The reader gets to know Marian and Charlie at the same time the characters are getting to know each other as they investigate a crime. The characters are refreshingly real. They have flaws which makes them genuine and endearing. I love that it takes place in the 1980's. It reminds me of hart to hart, the 1980's tv show. I mean that in the most positive way. It is a fantastic first book in the Charlie Clung series. I loved the narrator. He did a great job. Some stories are better told out loud. This book is one of them. I hope the rest of the series gets recorded on audio book.
