Deadly Interest: An Alex St. James Mystery

Julie Hyzy, Author . Five Star $25.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-59414-494-3

Hyzy's second cozy to feature Chicago TV reporter Alex St. James delivers on the promise of the first in the series, Deadly Blessings (2005). When Alex returns home after a humiliating evening with her former lover, she's dismayed to discover that Evelyn Vicks, her elderly neighbor, has been murdered. Evelyn, who worked at a bank, had earlier asked Alex's advice about some suspicious financial business involving the bank. Alex soon finds herself stalked by an ex-con and dealing with the victim's estranged son. New romantic interests and the care of her handicapped sister further complicate Alex's life as she puts her keen investigative skills to work for the police under the direction of the efficient, astute Detective Lulinski. The fast-paced plot builds to a spine-chilling ending. (Oct.)
