Below are excerpts of reviews of Show Me the Deadly Deer with links to the full reviews.
Kirkus Reviews, November 15, 2013
“Small-town Missouri again proves almost as dangerous to a former CIA agent as European back alleys. Mulford’s second provides plenty of excitement as readers wend their ways through a slew of suspects.”
St. Louis Post-Dispatch, December 21, 2013
“Mulford’s depiction of north-central Missouri will surely displease many people who live there. … raising the rural region’s murder rate close to that of St. Louis. Still, the local color can be colorful indeed.” —Harry Levins
Suspense Magazine, “Inside the Pages,” January 2014
“A mark of a good mystery series is when you can pick up any volume as a starting place and not feel lost. That test is passed by “Show Me the Deadly Deer,” the second entry in Carolyn Mulford’s enjoyable Show Me series, set in rural Missouri.
“Carolyn Mulford has crafted a satisfying mystery with enough twists to keep the reader turning the pages. She captures the flavor of the rural life, where everyone knows everyone’s business, but where deadly secrets can still remain hidden.” — David Ingram
Gumshoe Review, January 2014
“Tying all the clues together takes time. An exciting climax places Phoenix and Annalynn in danger. Overall, Mulford provides interesting characters and a good mystery.” —Mel Jacob
Columbia Daily Tribune, “Ovation,” January 26, 2014
“With decades of life experience behind them and healthy independence, none of the women in Mulford’s books could be described as one-dimensional, weak or foolish. They are fully human, with complex personalities and dynamic interactions with the world and one another.”
“Show Me the Deadly Deer flows with deceptively simple language and a satisfyingly complex plot.” —Amy Wilder
