I read Night Widow by Carol Davis Luce as part of the Deadly Dozen: 12 Mysteries/Thrillers set. I really enjoyed this story from the first chapter on. It is full of twists and unexpected turns, and the ending is absolutely brilliant.
The main character, Piper Lundberg, moves next door to Sybil Squire, “the platinum blonde…forever ingrained in our hearts for the femme fatale role in the 1950 Oscar win, The Shady Lady.” Piper has just broken up with Gordon and is house sitting for film producer friends while they are in Hong Kong working on a documentary. Prior to her marriage, Piper was a well-know film editor. In addition to giving her a place to stay, the Voights hire her to edit the documentary.
An admirer of Ms Squire since her childhood, Piper spies on the 85-year-old actress and starts noticing odd happenings. The plot thickens and Carol Davis Luce never lets the suspense drop. Hurry to buy this book and see the developments. Great read. I can’t wait to read more by this author.
