Book Description:

“Being favored by the rich and powerful often has its own drawbacks. Shades of Murder is another Mac Faraday mystery from Lauren Carr as she follows Mac as he finds himself once again the benefactor of yet another inheritance. A riveting mystery with plenty of twists and turns, Shades of Murder is very much recommended reading, not to be missed.” – review by William Buhle, Midwest Book Reviews

“Shades of Murder is a fascinating, intricately woven mystery that has a number of engaging characters looking into two cases that would seem to have nothing in common. …This is a most entertaining entry in this series, made all the more so by the wonderful inclusion of Gnarly and Irving, Mac’s dog and Gates’s black and white cat, who meet during the course of the story.” – review by Mysterious Reviews

REVIEW By LAWonder10:

I opted to listen to the audiobook of this third book of the Mac Faraday Mystery series.
In Shades of Murder, Mac Faraday Mystery series, the
story unfolds with a Prologue beginning a decade earlier. A talented artist is murdered and it becomes a “cold case”. Present day Mac Faraday, heir to a huge estate, is surprised to know another person has died, that he never knew, and left him a very valuable painting. Of course, Mac’s natural investigative personality is driven to know details.
Meantime, in walks Joshua Thornton, a key character introduced in this scenario of Mac’s mystery series. Joshua is a Jag lawyer in a distant state. He is persuaded to meet with a serial killer he convicted years ago, and to listen to what the criminal has to say. He only did this as a favor for a close friend.  His path crosses with Cameron Gates, a feisty detectivewho is investigating a “cold case” she has become aware of.  The two law officials “crossed paths” inadvertently crosses Mac’s “path” as well… and of course, we cannot exclude Gnarley!
This faraday adventure has two key mysteries working at the same time. Author, Lauren Carr,  does this so well. She keeps clear boundaries so the reader/listener does not become the least bit confused.
This is another book the reader/listener will have a difficult time putting down. Although, as in all of Carr’s books, It can be read or listened to as a “stand alone” I highly recommend you not skip this one. It is a key part of the series. Of course, They are all best read as a series in order.
The Narrator. Mike Alger, did a very good job with consistent “voices”, emphasis in all the right places, and in the energy  he used, but his use of the female voices was a little distracting.
I offer a Five Stars rating for the book and a our Stars rating for the narrator
Four and a half Stars rating as  a combination..
​This audiobook was gifted me with no pressure to post a positive review. This is my honest review.
