“Death by Theft” is a dark romp through a great read

 The latest book in A Josiah Reynolds Mystery series is yet another great read. Lots of drama and angst. And what made me happy – more of her daughter, Asa. Yes, Asa is back with her usual dark efficiency.

 Two of Josiah’s friends, Shaneika Mary Todd and the former June Webster of Monkey’s Brow, KY (now Lady Elsmere) have a new foal in common thanks to breeding their two thoroughbreds together. Jo finally gets to get a glimpse of the baby, but two things happen as they always do when Josiah Reynolds is around. The foal is missing. And they find the night watchman dead in his car.

 Lots of action. Lots of plot twists that are enough to turn anyone’s hair white. But Jo gives over to her daughter because, let’s face it, our favorite psychopath Asa Reynolds has ways of finding out information that her mother just doesn’t. Complicated characters that create complicated stories that are still easy reads and will steal your afternoon, if you let them. I know I can’t put them after I started reading. Death by Theft is no different.

 Another brilliant write by Abigail Keam and when you finish this one, go find “Asa is Back”, the prequel short story that leads into this one. More Asa but getting into her head now. Wonderful, real characters that I love and adore. As long as Ms. Keam keeps writing these, I’ll keep buying and reading them.

 Five out of five stars.
