Praise For Mare's Nest

It was supposed to be a routine missing person case, but when Los Angeles P.I. T. J. O'Sullivan arrives in Honolulu, the case becomes anything but. Instead, it becomes a mare's nest of extortion, betrayal, and murder with T.J. caught right in the middle.

Mare's Nest, the debut novel in the new series featuring the character P.I. T. J. O'Sullivan, Malone's female Kiwi sidekick from Cold Comfort goes on sale April 10 at your favorite bookseller.

Don't miss this action-packed, plot-driven crime fiction thriller set in the tropics. If you enjoy the Malone novels, you'll love T. J. O'Sullivan. A native of New Zealand, she has the accent and an attitude to go with it. T. J. is smart, sassy, sexy, and tough as old boots.

Hold on tight! Larry Darter’s new series starring private investigator T.J. O’Sullivan is a fast-paced and exciting ride with plenty of twists and turns along the way! T.J. is smart, tough, cheeky, highly skilled, and very self-confident. She’s definitely a gal to be reckoned with.

We first met T.J. when she helped Los Angeles PI Ben Malone on a case in Cold Comfort. Now Malone has sent her off on her own to Hawaii to try to find the missing daughter of a wealthy client. Immediately T.J. finds that the case is far more complicated than first described. Mare’s Nest is an idiom that refers to a deliberate hoax and that’s exactly what T.J. stumbles upon. Danger abounds, especially when T.J. discovers that she’s been set up to take the fall for murder.

Actually I liked T.J. as a character a lot and I do hope author Darter will continue to bring us more T.J. Sullivan suspense thrillers. I especially liked the friendship she develops with a pilot named Jackie (every woman needs a real friend!) as well as a more romantic relationship with a police detective.
