Killer Listing: A Darby Farr Mystery

Vickie Doudera, Midnight Ink (, $14.95 trade paper (336p) ISBN 978-0-7387-1979-5
Doudera's diverting second Darby Farr mystery (after 2010's A House to Die For) takes the intrepid realtor to Florida, to see her late aunt's business partner, Helen Near, who lives on a key outside Sarasota. Helen is expecting a visit from her new high-powered business partner, Kyle Cameron, who recently left Barnaby's International Realty, but Kyle fails to show, having been stabbed to death at an open house. Darby once again turns sleuth, aiding the investigation of Det. Jonas Bridges, who suspects Kyle was the victim of a serial killer known as the Kondo Killer. Meanwhile, as Darby assists Helen with the sale of St. Andrew's Isle, a $45 million property, to shipping tycoon Hideki Kobayashi, she learns more about her Japanese mother's past. While the pace drags at times, cozy fans with an interest in high-end real estate will be satisfied. (Apr.)
