A Short Time to Die
In A Short Time To Die, Marly Shaw witnesses the death of her mother’s boyfriend and his father after they were attempting to kill her in central New York. She keeps silent, but the rest of the family always suspects something. Thirteen years later, two more members of the family are found dead in a ravine in California. Two detectives have to discover the connection and what they were doing so far from home.
The back cover of this book is not very accurate at all. The main character, Marly, does not run for the rest of her life. She finishes high school and leaves for college and then moves to California with everyone in the family knowing exactly where she is. The detectives in this book are frightened of everything, freaking out when someone ransacks their room or follows them in their car. There was not a single character in this book who was likable. Overall, this was not a book I will read again.
