Murder Among Strangers (A Kate Austin Mystery)
by Jonnie Jacobs
2000, Kensington Books, ISBN 1575665409

I could identify with each character, especially Kate Austin, who was not only a victim in this story but a suspect as well. The twists and turns kept me in suspense practically every moment. For me, this book was even better then some Agatha Christie books!
