Stranger in the Room (on CD)

Stranger in the Room
by Amanda Kyle Williams [Compact Disc Williams]

Amanda Kyle Williams writes a readable series about a private investigator, Keye Street. who struggles with alcoholism. What keeps this series being completely clich├ęd is Keye's affection for her family and for the south. This love resonates from the pages. Keye's drinking problem cost Keye her job as an FBI profiler. Now she pays the bills by looking for bail jumpers and doing legwork for attorneys. Keye's boyfriend, Atlanta police detective Aaron Raucher, uses Keye's profiling skills to find the murderer of three people who had nothing in common -- an elderly man, a thirteen year old boy and a twenty-something junkie. Keye's loyalty to her family draws her into this case. One night Miki Ashton came home after partying with her friends. She tried to get her house key in the lock but she dropped it on the porch. As Miki bent to pick it up she heard a noise inside and she looked in the living room window. A masked person stared back out at her. The frightened Miki ran to her cousin Keye for help. Keye, her mother and Miki returned to Miki's house where they found a gruesome surprise. I enjoyed the quirky characters and seeing Georgia through Keye's eyes.
