Waters has questions aplenty. Why would a man like Burke, who seemingly has everything, end his life in such a gruesome manner? Why does the tape turn up in the hands of beautiful Ashlyn Allan, the night bartender? What exactly is on the tape?
Has Detective Mark Waters stumbled onto a murder disguised as suicide -- or simply a chance at love?
Though well-paced and cleverly written, I’m giving THE DEPOT four stars because, IMHO, it seemed incomplete. I was left wanting and felt the author might have fleshed the story out a bit more. Of course, maybe that is Carmen DeSousa’s intention as THE DEPOT is a prequel to THE LIBRARY where Detective Waters’ journey continues in a longer version. That THE DEPOT is simply the hors d'oeuvre meant to whet the appetite.
What can I say but “Color me there.”
I would recommend THE DEPOT to any reader who loves a tantalizing mystery series.
Carmen DeSousa's novels brim with romance, suspense and tragedy. Her sensual and gripping mysteries have earned bestseller status on three continents. Some of her other titles are: She Belongs to Me, Land of the Noonday Sun and Split Decisions.
