A successful, but reclusive young artist with a secret life. An abandoned mine pit. A curious dad and a very dead police chief.
When Lalla and her dad take a trip to Arizona to inspect her new property, Dad disappears. Luckily, Lalla enlists the help of a local tracker and finds him unharmed, but in the bottom of a mine pit. Only problem is, he’s got company—a very dead local police chief.
Then too, less than a mile away, a young artist is found murdered.
What’re the chances that these two murders are going to be related? Well, if you’re Lalla Bains, you don’t guess, you start looking for the killer!

RP, AKA Rebecca Dahlke was raised on her father’s 80 acres of Almonds & crop dusting ranch south of Modesto, California. She’s been writing since 1994, first with a writing group in the East Bay Area and then when she and her husband went sailing. My protagonist for the Dead Red Mystery series is a tall, blond ex-model turned crop-duster who, to quote Lalla Bains, has “been married so many times they oughta revoke my license.” Lalla is no Danielle Steele character & she’s not afraid of chipping her manicure. Scratch that, the girl doesn’t have time for a manicure. The first three books are based in the Central Valley of California. Beginning with A Dead Red Alibi, Lalla and family move to South East Arizona where she and cousin, Pearlie Bains, will continue to their unearth killers as Wishbone, Arizona’s newest P.I.s. My romantic suspense books are also on Kindle: A Dangerous Harbor, and Hurricane Hole. If you liked my Lalla Bains series, I know you’ll love these books: More romance, more suspense, and in an exotic location with nastier bad guys and a bald parrot!
