Death by Romance


Anne Kennison




The murder of Gordon Taylor, prominent businessman and philanthropist, has Detective Ryan Hamlin stumped. No viable suspects, no decent leads. When a chance conversation breaks the case wide open, Detective Hamlin suddenly has a long list of unlikely suspects who, with a “perfectly legal” multimillion dollar investment to protect, must make sure that none of them is convicted or everything will be lost. That’s when the deception and finger-pointing begin. The detective is certain he’s headed down the path that will lead to the killer, but is he?



The Grim Reaper is a capricious son-of-a-bitch who’ll let an undeserving miscreant go with nothing more than a renewed faith in God, then throw a surprise party for a guy like Gordon Taylor. A decent guy who was about to go from merely to hugely rich. With good business sense, ambition, and a few lucky breaks, Gordon had parlayed a small inheritance from his grandfather into Taylor Industries, a multimillion dollar conglomerate with fingers in everything from manufacturing to banking, and he was at the endgame for the IPO. He had worked hard and it was all about to pay off.

None of it mattered. Gordon Taylor would die within the hour.

Gordon’s work day had ended. He was lounging in his leather executive chair, feet crossed and propped up on the desk, hands behind his head, strong fingers intertwined.  He was enjoying a moment of solitude after another grueling day dealing with overly cautious attorneys more interested in racking up legal fees by creating obstacles than finding solutions, and greedy investment bankers wanting more than their fair share of Gordon’s empire. He’d spent the day wrapping up details for the IPO which, when done, would tack three beautiful zeroes on the end of his already substantial net worth.The thought didn’t leave him as elated as he had thought it would, and he wondered if trading control for dollars was worth it. He already had more money than he and his wife Jessica could spend in three lavish lifetimes and, when all was said and done, it wasn’t about the money. It never had been.

  3. Loved this book. I don’t have a lot of time for reading, but brought a copy of this with me on vacation. It was the perfect diversion from reality. I lost myself in the story and could not put it down – the opening lines captured me immediately and I literally finished the book in a day. Death by Romance is a great read! I hope to see more books by Anne Kennison!

    • Thanks, Diane! A recent reviewer said that when the final twist came it made perfect sense but she couldn’t see it coming. It’s very satisfying to keep my readers guessing right up to the end.
